Day 262 of 365 Day Challenge

The foyer of our apartment building has been decorated with lanterns and blossoms in preparation for the Mid-Autumn Festival or Moon Festival which takes place next Sunday.

From the website

'According to the Chinese lunar calendar (and traditional solar calendar), the  8th month is the second month of autumn. As the four seasons each have three (about-30-day) months on the traditional calendars, day 15 of month 8  is "the middle of autumn".

For the Full Moon

On the 15th of the lunar calendar, each month, the moon is at its roundest and brightest, symbolizing togetherness and reunion in Chinese culture. Families get together to express their familial love by eating dinner together, appreciating the moon, eating mooncakes, etc. The harvest moon is traditionally believed to be the brightest of the year.'
I took two pictures and combined them in Diana and then manipulated the result further using Superimpose, iColorama and Snapseed.
