This girl is celebrating her 15th birthday. But maybe
I should say this woman . . . because that's the
point of the Quinceañera celebration:  At 15, she
goes from being a girl to being a woman.  She was
not the only one marking this milestone yesterday
with a photo op in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

[To see more Sunday Shadows, go here.]


  1. i like seeing the girls all dressed up. a celebration of life!!

  2. I so much like the idea of the quincanera. Gotta take advantage of photo ops when they arise!

  3. Long tall shadows - how wonderful to celebrate 15. I was at the top at 16.

  4. When in México I was always charmed at the sight of these "women" and the celebrations, but the expense!!
