The Wishing Tree

Chinese New Years was on Thursday, but the celebrations continued through the weekend. We headed out the the Hsi Lai Temple to celebrate the Year of the Rabbit, with the Chinese New Year Peace Lantern Festival. There was plenty of good food, music, and good times to be had for all.

One of the things that caught my interest was the wishing tree, for a $5 donation you were given 2 coins with a ribbons attached, once you’ve made your wish, you tossed the coin into the tree, and hopefully your wish comes true. I managed to capture a few good shots of the tree itself, some of the coins hanging, and a coin mid air after being thrown. Happy New Year! Taken using a Canon 7D.
