The Day of the Dead - Dia de los Muertos

From the Day of the Dead procession in San Francisco, November 2nd.

This gal was at the tail end of the procession with these very cool translucent wings.. Directly behind her were San Francisco's finest (police). I took this shot with my flash and then took a minute to step back and realize that all the police vehicles had their lights on and that the red and blue lights might make for a good shot through the translucent wings.

Well I wasn't the only one who thought this. As I looked around there must have been well over a dozen photographers jockeying for position to get the shot without flash. We were all having fun walking backwards and bumping into one another.

What a fabulous photo op, John. I can just imagine how fun that must have been!
John Eagle: It was fun. Beautiful, warm night. peaceful, not too crowded, able to walk down the middle of the streets. Just right.
