A woman reflects in silence near a simple altar she made with candles and marigold flowers.­

This is a small "Altar de Muerto" (Memorial Shrine) in honor of someone who passed-away recently.­ Those shrines made during the Dia de Los Muertos (Mexican traditional Day of the Dead celebrations, each year on Nov 2nd).­

Photo taken at the Dia de los Muertos procession in the Mission (San Francisco) on Nov 2, 2013.­ For more info on this event, please check out my Dia de los Muertos series.
