The Lights came to Lubbock this weekend, and I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph it. Despite high winds a few days before, and local concerns about fire dangers, the event went on as planned. Everyone received a Chinese fire lantern that they can customize with a personal message. When the organizers gave the go ahead, the lanterns were lit and floated off dreamily into the night sky with Hallelujah serenading over the PA system.
