2009 Taipei Lantern Festival
Taipei Lantern Festival (台北燈節, read: tai bei deng jie) is a cultural festival that we celebrate every year (usually after Chinese New Year). Because I come to Taiwan in 2006 – until now I only watch this festival three times (2007-2008-2009). As I remember 2007 Taipei Lantern Festival was held in 中正紀念堂 (read: zhong zheng ji nian tang), in English we said: Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall. 2008 Taipei Lantern Festival was held in 國父紀念館 (read: guo fu ji nian guan), in English we said: Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall. Same with year 2008, 2009 Taipei Lantern Festival also held in 國父紀念館. Below I attach some photos about this festival, I think it’s very wonderful to see this by your own eyes. Anyway I only can provide these photographs, hope you can enjoy these photographs – all of these photographs are taken by Canon 5D + EF 35mm f/1.4L.
A little bit different with above photos, Chin Min Institute of Technology presents “dream will come true” ( I think it’s a nice title @@). From below photographs you can see nice miniature about busy urban life.
Because I love to take photo about Taipei 101, so in the last photo I try to combine this festival with Taipei 101 – although this photo isn’t well composed I still love this photo.
Finally I just can say this festival is very interesting ~ in this year I just hope this year (year of ox) will be better than previous year (year of rat). Any comments, suggestions, critiques are welcome.
