A few images, portraits, moments from the Dia De Los Muertos celebration at Olvera St. in Downtown Los Angeles. Everyone was in a festive mood even though one would think other wise since it was Day of the Dead. Olvera St. is usually full of activity on Saturdays but on that day, it was more crowded, festive and colorful. Kids having their faces painted, older folks watching the performances in the plaza, altars decorated with sugar skulls, tourists buying souvenirs and stopping to watch the dancers with their skull masks, good food everywhere….It is a celebration I would love to attend (and take photos of ) yearly.

Images made with my Canon EOS XS and Lomography CN 100 film.

  1. Looks like big fun!
    Lomo 100 NC is actually a great film, it is easy to forget that. Thanks for remembering me! :-)
    Have a lovely weekend!
