“They were so strong in their beliefs that there came a time when it hardly mattered what exactly those beliefs were; they all fused into a single stubbornness.” Louise Erdrich

If you want to be more creative take time to question your beliefs. Almost all limits are self imposed belief systems.

    Beautiful. The colors are happy colors and the day of the dead is supposed to be a happy day so it is all as it should be.

    Thanks for being here Wes…. interesting story about this shot….it was a revisit with my DSLR after initially seeing and making the shot with my phone. The square is always so easy so I had no trouble making a quick composition that felt right….when I returned with my phone I had a lot more negative space to deal with…..while I was contemplating that and the overall composition the gentleman wearing the cowboy hat walked into view and I fired off 4 shots as his reflection moved through the scene shooting with the 7D at high continuous or 8 FPS…. not only did I get a perfect subject to round out the image…..I would have never made the shot with my phone because its too slow….I do have the app burst which will shoot 30FPS but I would have had to change to it and the moment would have been lost.
