Flying Lanterns

Friday, September 3, 2010

I’ve never seen these things before, although Cory mentioned they’re popular in Thailand… Flying lanterns. We picked three up at some junk shop for kids in Montauk proper on a whim — and they turned out to be quite beautiful. We successfully put two aloft and watched them drift off slowly off into deep space over the ocean, fading fading fading until we couldn’t make them out anymore against the stars. The third experienced a mis-launch and wound up pretty much immediately in the surf. Anyway: Some photos of the event.
