Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden

May 27, 2012 | By | Reply More

What you will see below are a series of four photos I took tonight at the Chinese Lantern Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden. This was a stunning display of dozens of larger than life creations of silk, steel and other materials, that magically transformed the grounds of the MBG.

In the above photo, the foreground is a dragon made of thousands of porcelain plates, cups and other utensils. In the background is the Climatron (a longtime fixture at the Garden containing tropical plants). The festival will run through August 19. Three additional photos follow.
