"Silk" Chicken

Posted by
Harry (Apex, NC, United States) on 22 January 2020 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Another (and my last) photo from the "Chinese Lantern Festival." This chicken sits on a framework installed on a small lake. It is huge: approximately 20 or 25 feet (7 or 8 metres) tall and 50 or 60 feet (maybe 20 metres) long. The small lake is glass smooth, leading to a full reflection.

I was at the same event several years ago, and the lake installation was a fire-breathing dragon. It was certainly a fiercer looking creature, but the chicken is no less impressive.

SONY SLT-A77V 1/50 second F/6.3 ISO 800 27 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.
