Sydney Opera House, Lunar Lanterns, Dog

Lunar Lanterns were installed around Circular Quay to celebrate the Chinese New Year Festival. In the Chinese zodiac, every year is symbolised by an animal and this year is the Year of the Dog. The forecourt of the Sydney Opera House featured this giant lantern of a Dog created by Song Ling. The zodiac symbol of the Dog is characterised as loyal and honest, amiable and kind, although not always good at communicating.


  1. Very colourful! I like how you've composed the shot.

    1. Thanks, William. It took me a while to get a moment without people in the way too.

  2. A great lantern and a wonderful theme for the year!

  3. I like it, the year of the dog for me is suppose to be a positive one.

  4. Very festive and creative photo! Love it!

    Happy Week to you,
