Sugar Shoes

Day of the Dead is a beautiful holiday in Mexico. It's the time of year when the veil between the living and the dead is the thinnest and families gather to clean the graves of their dearly departed, bring their favorite foods and visit with them until next year.

I photographed these shoes atop a grave in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I loved the way they sparkled in the sunshine and the care with which they were placed upon a very loved souls final resting place.
