I have to agree, these are stunning... the coloures jump out at you.. at night when lit these must really be beautiful... You do take the best pictures Jules.. you really do.

I love paper lanterns.
They're a real fire hazard with candles inside, but my parents had them around the house when I was a kid and I've loved them ever since.

some of the small lanterns remind me of flags, some colors are not in the right order, but remind me of flags just the same. the whole photo set is very pretty.
