When Justin had my camera in Chilapa



When Justin had my camera in Chilapa, he took pictures of the tigrada, a tradition in that town in which many people dress as tigers (even tiny children) and participate in an enormous party. I missed the party, but am in posession of Justin's pictures because he had my camera in Chilapa.

Why do so many tiger masks have mirrors for eyes? It is notable that human eyes can be used for this puppose, that is, to see one's reflection. When is the last time you looked for your reflection in someone else's eyeball?
