Chinese New Year – Day One

by Reedz on February 7, 2008

What a packed day its been so far. Spent the morning at the chinese temple in town trying to capture the essence of the first day of chinese new year. There were at least 30 other photogs with the same objective. It’ll be interesting to see the different perspectives and interpretations offered by all of them. Unfortunately, some of the otais haven’t yet gotten on the web, so not much chance of seeing their works 🙁
