The festival centres around China town- it’s promenade draped in light as thousands of revellers jostle their way past restaurants and street vendors towards a central square of celebration, acrobatics and dancing. The ceiling was awash with light, incandescent and luminous, a twinkling canopy.
I tried a long exposure- to take in as much light as possible, constant above a squirming crowd.

Fantastic shot! I am a huge fan of time lapses. Those lamps are just stunning, and I am usually not a fan of shorter time lapses when it comes to people, but I really like that you can see the crowd’s faces, some half imprinted in one place but vanishing away… I love it.

Thanks! I thought it suited the scene- the bustling crowd all lit by the lanterns 🙂
