The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.

Day of the Dead is coming...........
We will be in Guanajuato to celebrate!
A few years ago we went to Ocotlan outside of Oaxaca.
We were lucky enough to meet this wonderful woman
who creates these clay masterpieces.

Guillermina Aquilar and her sisters
have been creating clay art for years.

Wonderful post. I am going to keep an eye out for your post about Day of the Dead. Kids and I are very curious.

Great shadow shots for the day! I lived in San Miguel de Allende for over a year and visited Guanajuato several times, one of my favorite places! Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Oh, I envy you! My next trip to Mexico won't be until after Christmas--long after Dia de los Muertos. Enjoy your visit to Guanajuato!


Shadows like horses, shadow likes chicks,
Shadows like houses built with red bricks;

Shadows much taller than a high wall—
No matter their shape, I love them all!
