Chinese New Year 2009

As we’d travelled from South Shields we had to see as much as possible in a few short hours (as well as sampling the food of course). On the stage erected next to the city walls at the bottom of Bath Lane, Newcastle, we found a variety of colourful live entertainments including this traditional Chinese dance. There was a good sized audience consisting mainly of those who didn’t want to follow the lions and unicorns visiting the local businesses to bring good luck.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 60mm lens, 1/250 second, f4.5, iso 200

  4. That one turned out just perfect! The complementary colors of yellow and violet, and the shapes of the fans, just couldn’t have come out better.
