Canberra Nara Candle Festival

Today was the13th annual Candle Festival day, held in conjunction with our sister-city Nara in Japan. We got there a bit early because we were working on the Australia Japan Society food stall, raising money for the orphans of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
This is the quick sketch I made in my Leuchtturm 1917 Whitelines link book with pen and ink.

In the end we were so busy that our three hours working flew by. Although some of my toes went numb from standing for so long. After we sold out of food there was just time to look at the ‘stream’ of candles in the Japanese garden.
