Skeletal frames of Mexican journeymen heading to the American border in the desert at night, as seen only in through the moonlit skies. Inspired by the dangerous life and death journey crossing from Guadalajara to Nuevo Laredo.  Pitch black of the night and different shades of blue sky reflects purple in waterholes.  As in life, dead journeymen still make the trek, their souls accompany the living, as skeletal frames shine through the night.
