Sea of Lanterns

Fest_01

I just wandered across this shared photoset of the most fantastical lanterns from this year's annual Lantern Festival in Tainan City, Taiwan. Until today I had never heard of the festival, which involves lantern contests, lantern floats, prisoner-made lanterns, religious lanterns, wishing lanterns, and a great "sea of lanterns." Take a look!

Comments

Fantastical photos fail to attract more than one eighteenth the number of citizens' comments as made about War.
(President to be praised for unwavering attention to such pressing internal matters as that all citizens take the time to look upon a wonderful Sea of Lanterns.)

Actually I would have made some witty comment about it, except for the fact that all I could think of was that it reminded me of that funeral in Karate Kid 2... and that just wasn't very smart at all...

I liked the flower shot the best.
