All Saints Day Giant Kites Festival at Santiago Sacatepéquez

Rudy Giron: Day of the Dead 2016 Photo Walks &emdash; Day of the Dead in Santiago Sacatepequez 1

As some of you may already know, I lead photo walks at three distinct cemeteries on All Saints Day. After a photography workshop on travel and street photography, we headed to the Mayan village of Santiago Sacatepequez, cradle of the giant kites and kites cooperatives. Rain was forecasted, but we were fortunate to have only sunshine and some clouds to keep the temperatures down and comfortable. Santiago Sacatepequez was such a delight with photographic opportunities everywhere you look. Below I share with you some of the photographs I made while leading the a very enthusiastic group from Australia, France, Haiti, Netherlands, and the United States. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.
