Parade Parade

I went to see a lantern parade, done in the name of diversity, equality, and justice for marginalized groups. There were various assortments of funny looking lanterns, ranging from festively garish to artfully done (my favourite were the fishes). They streamed down South Bank, and for a fragment of the night, I felt as if I was in the presence of ghosts and monsters from the otherworld.

Stuck at the jetty due to the streaming parade, I stayed and tried to take photos. My camera was overexposed, and I couldn’t fix it.

After a while, I gave up, and took in the scene with my eyes.

It was cold, and I found myself thinking about the past, and how I would have done things differently.

It’s funny what the night does to you.
