At dusk on November 2nd I walked downtown with my cameras to document one of my favorite Petaluma events, the Day of the Dead Procession for our local paper. The first year we lived here there were only a handful of people gathered around the dancers. This year people were climbing lightposts to see the display.
A larger gallery is available at www.petaluma360.com Some of the images will also be in the November 7th newspaper. Enjoy!
