Chinese New Year (4)

The trouble with being short (and not liking crowds) is that you tend to miss things. This is all I saw of the lion dance.

I got your email late last night. Shall reply later this morning. I will be at the parade on Sunday, but being equally short I might have issues. Have a firm way of indicating to crowds that I am a member of the press and "allowed" to push through underneath. Hope it works this time ....

This is a good one. Good luck to both of you, on your quest to photograph the parade.

Have transferred to mono now ... Did not think of that before, duh!! My laterality is escaping me!

I think it works well and covers the grey scale totally. The figure is even more crucial in mono.

Re Jim's comment. I don't think I will take my tripod. It will be all action shots and a tripod is well-nigh useless. It is meant to start at 7pm when there is still plenty of light. I think the crowd will be as interesting as the participants. It is only going from Town Hall to Haymarket.

But you ended up getting a more interesting photo. I always wondered who was inside the lion.
