Enter the Lion

The Lion enters Charlotte Square, Newcastle

The Lion arrives

The Lion does a traditional performance and dance at the entrance of houses and restaurants where food is offered, I believe in an effort to bring good luck during the coming year. It would be wonderful to see such an event in South Shields but unfortunately I don’t think there would be sufficient people to support it. That’s why we went to Newcastle, This picture was taken at the entrance to Charlotte Square and is cropped from a larger image, but I managed to get as close as possible, honestly. (See the size of the crowds in yesterday’s post.)

Camera details; Pentax K100D, 30mm lens, 1/350 second, f8.0, iso 200
