Festival of Lights

December 25, 2019 Leave a comment Go to comments

I like love wine.

But wine has nothing to do with today’s post.

I also love photography.

I had been a photography fan for a long time, much longer than I had been drinking wine. No, I don’t pretend to achieve any amazing greatness in photography, but I still truly enjoy taking the pictures and then sharing my view of the world with the world.

The time around Christmas and New Year celebration offers a lot of great picture taking opportunities – decorations are everywhere. Yesterday we visited LuminoCity Festival in New York City, which was an absolutely delightful spectacle, full of … yes, light, and creativity. Different worlds came together, from the North Pole to Africa, all beautifully set at the Randalls Island in Queens, with no shortage of ingenuity with music, lights and motion providing non-stop entertainment.

Below are a few glimpses of this beautiful world, which I had a lot of fun taking the pictures of with my new toy – iPhone 11 pro. One day I will master a quarter of the features the 11 pro camera offers, and it will be a good day – for now, here are some of my best efforts.

If you are in New York or will be visiting, the Festival is continuing until January 5th – I’m afraid that most of the times are sold out, however. Well, you can still try and see for yourself.

    Fantastic photos. A few of them look like paintings so much so I had to look close. Thank you for sharing the Lumino City Festival in all its brilliance!

      Thanks, Lynn, I tried! This new phone has an amazing camera, that’s for sure. Happy Holidays!

    Beautifully done, Anatoli! I wish I could get there to see it in person but we’re leaving on Saturday morning. Thanks to you, I feel like I have seen the next best thing!
