To honor, respect and enjoy – Viva La Vida!
I hope these moments I captured express how I felt this day as I enjoyed the day in downtown Austin, Texas at Viva La Vida hosted by Mexic-Arte Museum. I have never been to a festival to celebrate Day of the Dead. In the morning of the festival I thought about loved ones that I have lost and how they molded and defined my life. Time passes so quickly and for myself I tend to recognize that a little more each year. You never know what lies ahead, but we can help define a day. If I have learned anything in my time I hope to honor and respect; to give a little more love to the ones you love when you can and take time to remember the ones you loved. I hope you enjoy the photos that I captured on this day. Viva La Vida!
I am going to add 10 or more photos a day for the next 5 days in no particular order. On each day along with the photos I plan to write a short message for some of the photos and others I may just include a quote or a link to a song on how the photos make me feel. I hope you come back to view these series of photos and send me a comment if you like and I will try to get back to you when I am able. Please click on the photos to see the full size since the thumbnail version appears to crop the photos at times.
For today I thought of a couple of songs you might enjoy while looking at the photos:
Chavela Vargas – La Llorona (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KvtdCOIdWA)
Los Lonely Boys – Heaven (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wvkzoqQ5Oak)
