Tradition of Remembering...

PhotoHunt:

The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
- Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero)



All Soul's Day is a big thing where I live and it is an important event in the family... I am a cross culture of Filipino and Japanese and both heritage pay tribute to relatives who passed away.

This photo was taken last year at Cebu Memorial Park (CEMPARK). This man was a very good photographer and one of the pioneer of photography in Cebu! This explains my thing with photography...

By the way my PhotoHunt last week was late and I signed up with a wrong link so if you are not too busy you may want to see my own ways of walking with nature!

Please visit PhotoHunt's HQ for more!

[ADDED]

The baby is my nephew! LOL

Wish you all a great weekend,
