lantern festival

February 19, 2009

Just a select few of my favourite photos from the Chinese Lantern Festival held in Albert Park this year.

We had a little bit too much fun shooting all the pretty glowy objects from highly dramatic perspectives. Only later on did it occurred to us that we managed to fill up the entire camera without a single shot of an actual person. But being rather disinclined to hike back -literally up a hill- to the festival, we sufficed with a few street shots. For reasons unknown I'm looking rather sullen in them haha. Exhibit A:

I gleefully forced persuaded my boyfriend into letting me take this one of him.

All in all it was a rather good night.

Hmm need to claim my blog too. Follow my blog with bloglovin´

Holy crap and a half. This further confirms Vegas' lack of culture and personality. We need asian representation. You look fabulous.

Hey Marcella!

Thank you for stopping by, and thus letting me discover this jewel of a blog you've got. Adding you to my blogroll right away. And did I mention you have the most AMAZING collection of shoes? AND your bf looks a bit like Edward Norton, in this picture at least:) You are certainly a hot couple!

P.S. As of late, we switched to Nikon d90 from d40. Except for being heavier but faster, I don't really see that much of a difference. It does get dangerous at times, meaning one gets lost in searching the "perfect" lense *lol*
