Image of the Week: Incredible Photos from the Seoul Lantern Festival

Normally when I write these Image of the Week posts, I include some snarky comments about random things I have seen/taken photos of in Korea. This week, in unusual form, I am going to avoid making any comments on these wonderful photos from the Seoul Lantern Festival. The Lantern Festival has been around for a few years (supposedly 4, although I can't verify that), and each year has increased in status, length, and sophistication. I have to say, this is one of the best public art displays I have ever seen, and I am glad that I accidentally stumbled upon it.
