    CrDome emailed me and suggested we go out on a rainy afternoon to the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago for the Day of the Dead celebration. This is a festive ocassion celebrated by people of Mexican ancestry where families gather to remember and pray for their deceased relatives and friends.

    The first event of the afternoon was face painting. While taking photos we were asked if we wanted to have ours done...

    If you ever give ivory an opportunity to shoot with you be prepared for LOTS of whining. "It's too wet". "It's too cold". "It's too early". "It's too late". Let me think on it. However you can roust him out, he's a damn good companion.

    These are all shot with the Kodak Ciné Ektar 25mm f1.4 -Manufacture date 1954

    I so struggled to capture this one. Manual focus and old eyes are such a bitch. I saw the amazing photo op as I stood by her. She was quite animated though.Bobbing and ducking around. Shortly after I got focus she reverted to this original stance.

    I saw that they were lined up last night at the Apple store in Chicago, sleeping in tents, waiting to spend $1000 for the Iphone 10. Now i know why you were so late in posting! Nice work with the Kodak!

    Mike -This is stunning and surreal. Beautiful, but eerie as hell. Am amazing juxtaposition against the background.

    Melissa -It's sort of your second backyard. Mark your calendar for November 2, 2018. We'll be waiting.
