Lantern Festival
Lantern Festival
Kuala Lumpur, 25th September 2007: The Mid-Autumn Festival is commonly known as the Mooncake Festival or Lantern Festival in Malaysia. Celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, it is a evolving Chinese tradition. I photographed this girl a few days earlier and was reminiscing about the lanterns I used to like as a kid. I saw only Power Puff Girl, Superman and Spiderman lanterns that night. Whatever happened to those simple fish or rabbit lanterns? Fear not, they are still around. See the next pic in this 8-page photo essay.
