Mid-Autumn

Today's the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Lunar Calendar, that's right folks, Mid-Autumn's night, or Mooncake Festival, so it's lanterns galore at my home, as always :)

Lotsa lanterns!! It's a colorful mess :)

We couldn't put up as many lanterns as we'd like this year as Bro isn't around; stuck in Subang, while Sis and Yen had their hands full relighting candles. Nonetheless, it's very fun to light lanterns and we had a good time!

The perfect circle of a moon; it was so bright it lit the whole garden, no lights needed!

Happy Mid-Autumn everyone!! I'm off for a bite of mooncake or two :)

LOL, you had no idea how many shots I had to take before getting barely-acceptable ones; my camera sucks at night and everything tends to get blurry. At one point I was almost lying on the floor to keep my hands steady for that moon and lantern shot :p

A great photographer does his stuff in full MANUAL mode! I've gotten a semi-manual for 2 years and all I've been doing is shoot in AUTO! Thanks for the compliments anyway :p
