Since its May opening, we’ve heard nothing but rave reviews about our Botanical Garden’s Lantern Festival.
I’ve so wanted to go, but the descriptions of the enormity of the crowds was, to me, a little daunting.
(Okay, I know we just ran The Color Run among a sea of people, but that’s different. You’re expected to sweat at a 5k. So is everyone around you. Strolling through a garden? I’d kinda rather sweat solo.)
Our plan worked. While there was still a nice crowd, it was comfortable.
We were able to move along the paths freely and I was able to linger wherever I wanted to work on my night photography.
I’ve always had a tough time with taking photos in low light…especially with my good camera.
But the lanterns were pretty forgiving.
The photos aren’t perfect, but I’m working on it.
It’s such a lovely festival. If you have a chance to go — don’t worry about the crowds or weather. Just go!
