Mona Lisa Smile

TBP



OLYMPUS FE115,X715; f/3.8; 1/40 sec; ISO-125
Dead Girl – Tucson All Souls Procession 2008

I’m particularly fond of this shot. Dia de los Muertos is a big deal in Tucson. Streets are closed and anyone who wants to march in the procession is welcome to do so. I saw this young lady in 2008 and was lucky enough to get a shot I really like with a point and shoot Olympus. I like the way she is looking directly into the camera. I like the “red eyes”. I like her outfit and homemade death mask. Just way to many good things make up this photo.

I regularly rotate this photo through as my header image on this blog.

  1. There are so many ways that picture is awesome. Hmm I need to go Tucson again. I’ve been in Texas and seen a couple of people in costume. But nothing like shutting down streets.
