Buddha’s birthday lanterns

Buddha lanterns, 4/5/13

Apparently today is the anniversary of the birth of Buddha – or at least, today is the day on which this anniversary was marked with a kind of fair set up in Brisbane’s South Bank complex. Happy birthday, Buddha – your religion always seems to me rather less dictatorial and more self-empowering than most of the others, so I feel relatively sympathetic towards it. I got a few decent photos today from a ride up and down the river on one of the amazingly cheap CityCat ferries, but I choose this picture instead because I like the light, the vivid colours and the calligraphy.
