Les Grandes Tableaux

Lantern Festival MoBot 2015-08-28 25

Well, I can't say it (or much of anything except hello) in Chinese but I can in French. It often sounds cooler than English. Once you get through the - what would you call it - electric bower in the bottom picture, you hit a series of big set pieces. This, as you could guess, is the first.

So what's today's excuse for for no comments? Out of the office 2/3 of the day for one of the periodic infusions I need for RA. (It works really well.) Back at work frantically returning phone calls and preparing a client for a hearing next week. And Friday night as I write this babysitting Madeleine so our daughter and her husband can go out to dinner for their anniversary and the kid wants attention. And this morning I really should go shoot the opening parade at the Japanese Festival. Peace, some day.

The third shot's my favourite.

You did a good job here shooting with high ISO.

I like the cherry trees best!

You sound a bit like me running around like a headless chicken at the moment...

The tree-lined alley is spectacular. I love it. There's a "festival des lumières" in Lyon in December every year. I've never been there. I wonder if there's anything as fantastic as this?
