PDN Photo of the Day

Lucky Underwear in Oaxaca, Mexico

For the past 30 years, Jill Waterman has traveled to a different location to photograph traditional celebrations of the New Year. This year Waterman visited southern Mexico to photograph Oaxaca’s colorful markets. Vendor’s stalls are packed with celebratory piñatas and fireworks (even figures of old men are stuffed with fireworks) which are set on fire at midnight to start the New Year off with a bang. And many stalls carry “lucky” underwear. Red underwear increases your odds of finding love in the new year, while yellow is said to bring financial prosperity.
