I didn't get to stay for the end of this year's Lantern Parade (which I'm hoping is my last as a student), but on the bright side, I did get to see my first and hopefully my last Oblation Run. Stupidly enough, I didn't snap any pictures of that event, mostly because I was dumbfounded when I found myself along the lines of the AS corridor, with nothing left to do but watch as the naked frat men ran past me and a lot of other people. Most of them were in the right mind to whip out their cameras and document the once-a-year event while I stood there, scandalized and thinking I was so lucky (really!) to have an awesome view of the, er, men. I didn't look, though, and tried my best to call my friends, who were in some other viewing site and were apparently screaming their butts off. Hehehe.
So while I didn't get to stay long enough to even watch the beginning of the parade, I did get to photograph what I love most - people, whether candidly or with consent. Every Lantern Parade, that usually means my friends and my batchmates,. :)
(The lighting wasn't too great, and while I would love to edit these full-blast, I didn't, and simply did the post-process brightness/color adjustment.)
|Val and Merri, my crazy friends!|
|More friends! Yay.|
|An orange/red velvet cupcake from Celine! Yay.|
|The bold yellow colors of our building and the brickwork.|
|The Carillon, jutting out in the distance.|
|I love UP. I have to admit that part of the reason why I chose to go there was because of those |
lovely canopies of trees, intertwining right at the center of the Oval where they meet.
|We didn't march with the college this year, YAY! I've waited four years to earn the right to be a spectator instead!|
|Crazy friend Val. HAHA!|
