  1. Hi Marianne,

    Can I post black and whites? I will be taking some digital but will mostly be developing black and whites. Look forward to somehow being a part and will need to create a blog.


    • You could be right, Wendy – there was a huge factory fire in Smethwick, West Midlands, last year, causing 6 million pounds of damage – and that was blamed on a sky lantern 😦

      They certainly are a bit unpredictable (and uncontrollable).

  2. Reminds me of my sister’s wedding when we set off a load of Chinese lanterns, most of them went crashing into the bushes and almost set the place on fire. Mine managed to dodge the wall though and rocketed into the air, wonder if it turned up back in China…

  3. Hi Marianne for my husband Stewarts 60Th birtday we had a garden party with round about 60 people there at the same time we all let one of these lannternes go what a site it was they are very safe if you just whatch what you are doing. I will try and find some photos for my next post.

    • They look lovely when they float away, but sadly, I saw a few being released without such grace – floating sideways with the paper ablaze, towards groups of people all shouting “WATCH OUT”.

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
