The Magic of Lanterns
A recent trip to Jardin Botanique in Montreal to photograph the lantern festival netted some fun shots. We arrived in the Chinese garden just at dusk and began trying to record these wonderful, whimsical designs.
The lantern exhibit happens every year from early September to early November and is always a treat for the eyes and spirit. The larger-than-life sized figures and scenes all express a theme which changes each year. As is custom we got rained on for part of the evening! Seems most years we go to the lantern festival it’s cold and rainy… we were chilled but happy when we left.
My blog today is in memory of my friend Laura, a sweet woman taken from us far too early.
