Winter Solstice 2014

The first day of Winter, but the days are getting longer again. Vancouver celebrates Winter Solstice every year with lantern processions and song, theatre and dance in several of our Community Centres.

as every year I like to post an image on this special day - and I want to say thank you to all who look at my photos and to all who leave their comments - without you I would not be here !!!

    This photo is way cool. I love the colors, light and soft focus. I also like the dynamics created by the tilt of the main puppet.

    Die Meteorologen behaupten ja, daß der Winter schon am 1. Dezember begonnen hat. Ein schöner Brauch ist es bei Euch, auf diese Weise den Winter zu begrüßen.

    Ich kann es kaum erwarten...
    mir fehlt die Sonne in diesen langen Nächten auch.
    Es ist durchaus ein Grund zum feiern, wenn die Lichttage wieder länger werden.
    Klasse deine Fotos zum Thema +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Hello Adele,

    very pleasant even this representation of the solstice, Adele
    is true not all of us, and our mutual perseverance and joy in following us, we would not be here
    hugs, Adriana

    We don't celebrate Solstice here although it was mentioned on the radio:) Anyway, it's good news the days are going to be longer and longer:)
    Merry Christmas, dear Adele, to you and to all your loved ones. Hugs, Viola

    Man merkt es noch nicht so richtig
    ... aber man weiß es ... die Tage
    werden wieder länger!
    Ein sehr schöner Brauch dies zu
    Eine tolle Dokumentation von Dir!
    Alles Gute, Jochen

    what a dynamic theatrical little scene you captured here! what outlandish creatures? ignorant me sees a character with a clown's head, wings for a collar and snake arms – a blend of western and first-nation art?? – literally sticking his smiling head out my computer screen, as though embracing those upcoming lighter mornings of winter! i coulnd't agree more! ; )) happy winter solstice 2014, adele! hugs, sabine.
