Chinese Lanterns


Before I started taking photos and publishing them, I was fairly unobservant. Looking for “the photo” has made me a lot more observant, and also a lot more ready. Practice with the camera (or in my case iPhone) means that it’s quick(ish) from thought to photo. Opportunities can pass quickly and if one isn’t even noticing things then there aren’t that many opportunities !

This was taken at my local shopping centre/mall, there’s an oval shaped opening which extends from ground floor all the way up to the roof. This display hangs in the space and is just a breathtaking array of colour. So enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I so agree with the sentence “Looking for โ€œthe photoโ€ has made me a lot more observant, and also a lot more ready.”, I feel just the same way about that ๐Ÿ™‚ Great shots you have found, however ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I like how you shared about being more “observant” – because seeing is not the same thing as “really seeing” ๐Ÿ™‚
    and I bet this was breathtaking to look up and see –
