These were shot at a local restaurant participating in Chinese New Year. It was too dark and I was without a tripod so I didn't actually get the shots I had in my mind, but I'm pretty happy with how these turned out.
I worked a few years at an importing/design company and we sourced much of our product from China. I hated the company but I grew to love the Chinese culture we were exposed to.
From the dozens or so of celebrations that go on throughout the year, this is one of the more beautiful.
