such an utterly romantic sight.
this spectacular display marked poland's midsummer night festival aka summer solstice. a record-breaking 8000 chinese lanterns were released by the residents of poznan, along the warta river.
i've always been a fan of twinkle lights. when i lived in a loft 10 years ago, i hang some on the wood beam of my 20 foot ceiling. i also draped up a long piece of chiffon from the ceiling, creating a see-through curtain above my bed. and i'd fall asleep with just the twinkle lights on. such a girl.
it was my attempt to create a "night sky" above me. i can just imagine laying down near the warta river and looking up at these glowing orbs drifting towards the night sky. magical.
now i find out there's a similar lantern festival scene in disney's tangled. guess i'll have to add it to my queue of movies to watch.
thanks to sean for showing me this breathtaking video.
