Once in a Lifetime

So my sister has this shrine, ala' Dia del Muertos, in her basement, just a couple of feet from where LB and I laid our heads each night over the 4th of July weekend. 

And I liked the way the skull looked, with the dim light coming in through wispy curtains, and the contrast of a summer's day just the other side of the basement wall, so I snapped a few pics. 

The shrine, incidentally, is dedicated to the memory of Uncle Wally & Aunt Donna - truly two once-in-a-lifetime peeps, who passed away within a year of each other some 17 years back. 

Doesn't seem nearly that long ago but time has a funny way of marching on.

And while I was in photo-brain mode at the time - 'cause it looked so cool - now its tough to dash off a few lines without getting a little teary eyed.
