The return of the fish

450It's been a long time since the last lantern photo, TEN DAYS exactly! I think I've waited long enough. I went to Sheung Wan where there's a half block of shops specializing in making laterns and other paper products; as you can see we have lanterns in the shapes of rabbit, starfruit, accordion and of course, fish.

Seeing this fish lantern reminds me of the fish series in late February and that was FUN, if you want to revisit or if you haven't seen them the links are here: paper goldfish, fengshui fish, floral anglerfish, Victoria and the fish, new dish, dinner fish, and I ended the series with a post on cats...;-)

The fluffy white ones look like they have wheels.

Some people like colour photos, some people like B&W photos, I think both have their own magic. Your colours and your love for photograph them is really obvious and nice.

Greetings from Perú

It is amazing how much work and detail are put into these lanterns of paper. Delicate and ephemeral. Your fish series was fun!

Stu, you're right, the rabbits with wheels are usually for smaller kids.

Dutchie, you're welcome

min, I've got one mooncake from my mom, that's all I can afford, it is too fattening :-)

kaa, the festival is on October 6 this year

And thank you everybody for your footprints...btw, have you noticed the pink fish has red lips??? I thinks it has a bit of Betty Boop in its face LOL
