|This is a shot of a part of our local cemetery during the funeral of a relative of my in-laws.|
What seem to be small houses are actually mini-mausoleums customized according to specifications of relatives of the deceased. Aside from protecting the actual tomb, it has somewhat become a tradition in most parts of the country, that during all souls day, the family of the deceased would tidy up the place and visit, pray, and even eat meals and have a small feast inside these "houses", as a symbol of the closeness they once had when their loved one/s was still alive.
PP: Saturation boost, minimal contrast and brightness adjustment, minimal sharpening
