Canberra Nara Candle Festival...






This Japanese candle festival was so beautiful... just gorgeous.

I am so glad that we went (it was one of those, no I do not yet want to be spring/summer... I am going back to winter days and nights... pretty bloody cold) !!

I had my first class at PhotoAccess yesterday morning... and my teacher Sian, told me about it. So thankful she did!!

It was such a magnificent sight.

Mikaela made her own lantern and joined in the procession. Very sweet. I dont have any pics (that make any sense) of her because she MOVES.... argh a tough one in the dark!!

Although I learnt quite a bit at my first photography class, there is still a LONG way to go!!Hence these night photos are not the best - the joy for me ~is in the learning~ ABOUT things I am passionate about!! As opposed to boring work stuff.... or life stuff... you know that character building crap (sarcasim peeps, tis the Aussie humor) Baahahahaaaa!!
Peace and love on a sunny Sunday.

Dar.. She is a little cheeky one. She hates me to take her photo. But I *love* the fact that she is so active.
I wouldnt really want it any other way.
