Candle in the Moon

It's the Mid-Autumn Festival again! Well, not now but really soon. Some people call it the Moon-cake Festival, others call it the Lantern Festival. Well, whatever. Thing is, what are the few things that come to mind when you think about the festival? Moon-cakes, lanterns, candles, the full moon, your friends, your family, your whoever and what not. Well, there is a story behind every festival. What do you know about this one? Don't ask me, I don't remember it well. I was hoping someone could tell me, so I can blog about it. I think it's above love?

Well, how do you celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival? Normally my friends like to barbecue in the moonlight. My family and relatives, however, like to play with fire. Not fireworks, just fire.

Like this

Yeah candles. We line them up to make them look like something. And since the candles drip everywhere, pictures don't always look nice. So I didn't want to focus, and tried another shot.

I'm not sure if that's better or not, but I now know I can shoot without focusing. Haha~ But of course, we don't only stick candles around the place, we also put them in lanterns.

Not so bright?

Somehow this photo looks kind of scary to me. Took this one with rather high shutter speed, plus it was really dark. I think these cheap lanterns are more fun than those fancy ones. They come in all kinds of colors too, which will make your house look like some tree with glowing fruit all over if you hang them everywhere.

And that's it!
