Stardust Ruins

The artist Liliane Lijn was featured in the BBC documentary Imagine: Let There Be Light. Her work consists of material that NASA use to collect stardust. She uses it to study light. Its fascinating and compelling minuature artworks create beautiful lightforms.

The programme was full of amazing light exhibitions.

Liverpool Lantern Parade

The lantern parade in Sefton Park last night was spectacular. Spooky characters were lurking at every corner while eerie music played in the background. The parade was lit with laser beams and swirling lights that followed the paper lanterns through the park.

There was a magnificent finale with fireworks and flying ghosts around a lantern moon.

My friend Frank stole the show in his crocodile outfit.

See more pics at the lantern gallery here:

The parade is free and takes place every year on Halloween in Sefton Park, Liverpool. You can learn more about the Liverpool Lantern Company here:
