The cemetery might sound like a dismal place for a photoshoot, but Guatemalan cemeteries aren't your stereotypical gloomy graveyards. The resting place here is a pleasant one, reminiscent of a park–somewhere you'd want to have a picnic or read a book.
The traditional cementario is bright and colorful, decorated with flowers and ornamental paper decor–the perfect backdrop to compliment our boots. Also, with the recent Day of the Dead celebrations at the beginning of the month, all of the graves had a fresh coat of paint on them (painting the grave is the custom way for families to pay their respects on the holiday).
I love the way the bright colors of the boots stand out against these vibrant backgrounds…
