Pictures from a Quinceanera

Here are a few pictures of a quinceanera birthday party that I took back in 2006. It's the kind of thing I wish I could do over now that I have much better camera equipment. However these pictures from the quinceanera aren't too bad all things considered.

The Quinceañera (sometimes also called Fiesta Quinceañera, or simply quinces) is the celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday. This birthday marks the transition of the girl from childhood to young womanhood.

The quinceanera girl is dressed almost like a bride with young attendants and a tiered cake that resembles a wedding cake.

The celebration of the quinceanera is a wonderful representation of the diversity of life and culture in America.
