As part of my son’s high school Spanish project, the family and I went downtown to the Mexic-Arte Museum. I brought my casual Fuji camera along, the X-A2, both to document his visit and to hopefully capture worthy images.
The timing was fortuitous, with the upcoming Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican Day of the dead, celebration. In Austin, the museum sponsors a big parade through downtown, which is happening on October 26th. I’m planning to go.
I’m assuming this creature is a bat, which is made of paper mache and is called a Mojiganga. This and others are featured in the parade, but I got to photograph it in a quiet and controlled setting.
