slowing down the body and laying down your weapons

The Light festival, Te Ramaroa, takes in Nelson this year, after being canceled in 2020, due to the pandemic. I didn't find any particular theme in it and, around the Cathedral, cowgirls rub shoulders with jellyfish, illuminated arrows going in all directions, children walking with illuminated fish on their heads. I believe the message was to get anything that could make light out of Nelson's attics. Despite the somewhat chaotic feeling it had on the first night, the occasion seemed to have brought Nelsonians out despite the cold weather. The atmosphere was festive and it gave me the opportunity to take pictures at night (not easy).
