Hey, all. Just to show that there’s more to the mean streets of Jangyu than the trash and decay I highlighted in the last post, I thought I’d balance things out today with a bit of urban beauty.
This is the first of my Scenes from a Stroll to feature more than one picture, but I think this lot work together as a series. And to tell the truth, I couldn’t bear to break up the set!
These lanterns have recently resumed the positions, a couple of minutes from my place, they occupied at this time last year. I don’t know who hangs them there — outside a massive police training centre and opposite a service station — but I suppose they’re a teaser for the Buddha’s Birthday celebrations that will mean — oh, joy! — a long weekend starting on Friday the 17th.
I took these pictures two evenings ago as I walked home from the shops. Just as I was lining up one of the early shots, somebody flicked a switch and they took on a fresh and glowing beauty — I try not to use the word “magical” but it almost fit here.
And then I had to start all over again!
