Every fall, the Yee Peng (or Yi Peng) lantern festival is held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, coinciding with the Thai holiday of Loy Krathong. The festival is one of the more photogenic in the world, with thousands of lanterns lit alight and set free into the night sky.
Daniel Nahabedian, a Chiang Mai-based photographer, was there to photograph the event. I’ve featured two of his photos below, but for the full photoessay, hop on over to his site, Canvas-of-Light – some wonderful night photography there!
Sebastien Toutant (@sebtoots) figured it was a perfect opportunity to snowboard our city’s urban mountain, replete with his signature powder stunts over Montreal’s stairways and sidewalks. I used to run up and down this mountain and it’s surreal to see it used as a ski piste! Love it.
In early 2012, Vincent Urban and friends began a journey to South America in their land rover, visiting Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay and Southern Brazil.
While their trip was quite a bit longer, they’ve put together a wonderful video capturing the contrasts of the continent, from deserts to cities, water to empty, windy plains.
