Tonight we had so much fun at 2012 Floriade NightFest. Yes it was cold, and yes there were (still) flowers everywhere. But there was so much lights everywhere too. It was such a different experience, we had a really lovely time. The cold reminded us a bit of Christmas night market in Cologne minus the glühwein.
I love the ‘carnival’ feel to it in particular. The giant ferris wheel, the slides, the various ‘fun’ rides, and live performances, it made the night so festive. The stalls were all heavily decorated with lights, big and small. Lots of twinkle lights. I did not take a lot of flowers photos tonight, because let’s face it, that blue spotlight does nothing to those lovely yellow tulips, alright. So I let myself be enticed by those little twinkle lights. Like the ones in this stall.
I wasn’t planning on it, but it seemed that I was still used to taking my shots from my dog’s angle even when dog was not with me.
