Patrick Love Photography bio picture

Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Yi Peng Lantern Festival, Chiang Mai, Thailand

Yi Peng is the beginning of the multi-day Loi Krathong festival in Chiang Mai, Thailand.  Loi Krathong involves a lot of fire.  Actually, the significance of the festival lies in the act of letting go of the floating lanterns, or floating candles on waterways.  It is how people in Thailand and much of SE Asia practice letting go of angry feelings and grudges.  Anne and I flew over to Thailand on Friday, and made it back to the Philippines on Sunday.  We stayed in the wonderful Seven Senses Guest House.  If I am ever back in Chiang Mai, I would happily stay there again.
