Last night was lantern festival. Although big on fireworks here this is not such a major thing compared to Taipei. The lanterns follow on from the Lunar New Year and generally seem to mark the end of the new year celebrations. The big event takes place just outside Taipei in Pingshi (平溪區) with paper lanterns with a candle providing the heat to set them going. You write your wishes for the year on them then send them up to the skies.
It is quite amazing that a little tea candle can provide enough heat to lift it.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
