It’s a Chinese tradition to write wishes on paper lanterns and release them during special occasions or holidays. This particular lantern release was in celebration of Mid-Autumn Festival.
Today is one of the few threefers that the calendar gives out. It is Valentine’s Day, Lantern Festival, and Friday. Three holidays on one glorious day. I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s/Lantern Festival/Friday. Enjoy the weekend and remember to relax.
The 798 Art District is by far my favorite place in Beijing. There are loads of art galleries, cafes, and an endless supply of inspiration.
For those of you not familiar with Spring Festival, it is the Chinese equivalent of Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one super holiday. Many family owned businesses close up shop for about a month for Spring Festival. In small towns that can be a problem. Lucky for me Dalian is not a small town and the local malls and corporate businesses stay open.
Dalian University of Technology has an amazing campus. There are a lot of out-of-the-way areas where you can’t tell that you’re in the middle of a major city.
Ever since I’ve been in China, and shooting digital exclusively, I’ve always converted images to black and white during post-processing. Alfie Goodrich, a photographer I follow on Google+, writes about how he puts his camera in black-and-white mode while shooting in order to see in black-and-white. During the recent snow day in Dalian I decided to try out Alfie’s technique. A small warning. If you shoot in RAW and black-and-white mode, Lightroom will change everything back to color. Even with Lightroom changing all my images, I found the exercise useful.
