Playing with Perspective

It’s Wesak – Christmas, Good Friday and Easter Sunday rolled into one.  You must imagine the city glowing and glittering with lights, the villages flickering mellow lamplight through the gloom.

Over the weekend I was out wandering the streets, watching the crowds, marvelling at the lights.  So many pictures to go through, so many more images in my head – too much going through my head.  Here are a couple of shots, beginning with some bizarre angles I took especially for Sue Llewellyn and her “Angle” challenge this week: Angles of the Red Lotus Lantern and the same group of lanterns, at the University playing fields, playing with perspective for Jake – the master of perspective this week.

  1. Soaking up what you can before you leave; I can imagine there is a lot going through your head. Wandering the streets and taking in all the sights and sounds is good for the soul.

    • I don’t know about the soul, Angeline, but it’s been wonderful to be here for these celebrations. This is a time when everyone’s on the streets, rich and poor, young and old, and there’s an air of simplicity and continuity which feels good to be part of.

  2. Love your perspectives of the lotus lanterns. Can imagine you wanting to soak in the sights sounds and smells around you 🙂

  4. These look magical. It is easy to imagine “the city glowing and glittering with lights, the villages flickering mellow lamplight through the gloom.” The warmth of the red is so inviting.
