The month of October is rapidly slipping by with only a few photos taken of our fall colors. Luckily, I did get the opportunity to visit the Chinese Lantern Festival a few weeks ago, and if you live near me, you still have the chance to go. They have announced that it will be extended two extra weeks into November.
SuperDad and I paid our fees and visited on a lovely Sunday night earlier this month.
It took months to create these incredible lanterns which are all for sale at the end of the festival.
This terra cotta soldier can be purchased for $500.
Do you know anyone who would like to buy a 200-foot-long dragon?
He’s rather impressive from head to tail.
As you might be able to tell from some of the photos here, I am trying to figure out how best to mark my pictures if I’m going to sell cards online. I already make and sell photo note cards during the farmers’ market season, but it has ended and June many months away. On one hand, I enjoy sharing my photographs and offering cards at a reasonable price; on the other hand, I find that there just aren’t enough hours in the day for everything I wish to accomplish. (Case in point: it has taken me 2 weeks, start to finish, to get this post ready to publish. It takes time to size pictures down and add the signature.)
