WPC: Heritage


The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of May 17, 2017.

This week, share a photo that channels a living tradition, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.

Out of all the fascinating objects I’ve seen at the Roseville flea market this spring, I’m always especially drawn to those that remind me of items my family bought on our trips to Mexico — especially at the Mercado Libertad in Guadalajara — and kept around our house for decoration. They certainly reflected the good memories of our travels, but they also echoed reminders of a family history, on my dad’s side, that I might otherwise have lost completely.

Among other items, there was the Aztec calendar, the brown ceramic jug, the wonderful acoustic guitars, and a sugar skull adorned with the name “Fernando.”
