Three Lanterns

– view larger –

There were many colorful lanterns lining both sides of the wooden bridge spanning this almost dry riverbed. They were all worthy of being photographed, but the three in the center caught my eyes due to the semi symmetrical nature of the background. That is not a Nazi Swastika on the right lantern, but rather a very sacred and auspicious Buddhist symbol. It is also a Native American symbol most likely brought over by Native American descendants who crossed the land bridge which once existed between Asia and North America, and is now the Aleutian Islands.

  1. Mithai Mumblezz: Thank you for liking my image “Three Lanterns”. When you capture a scene with film or with light gathering sensors (film in this case), it is forever. The feeling you had at that moment can be retrieved and savored at any time.
