No people in this one either, but at least I used a flash!  This is a dragon made of Chinese restaurant dishes, cups and spoons, held together with wire.  Conveniently there are lights like Christmas lights.  They even used a wide range of lights, frosted bulbs, clear lacquer bulbs, clear glass mini lights, possibly LED lights in the antenna.  Most of the photos I took that night were of the lantern lights, so no flash.  I wanted to show the construction of this piece, so I used the pop-up flash of my 30D.



This is what it looked like in daylight, the previous year, from the other end


And here here is a photo of a small piece taken during daylight, with the lights on
