Year Of The Dragon

_DSC5443-2
It's been dampish for the past couple of Chinese New Year parades.
It doesn't seem to keep the crowds away or dampen anyone's enthusiasm.
(these aren't very sharp images, I was struggling with low light, wide open apertures, yada, yada …)

A very colourful display of culture.

They seems to celebrate it over the whole world. For certain in the Netherlands. Thanks to your sharp picture I see that one of the chinese girls is in reality a girlfriend who loved to walk in a colorful costume like these.

Not sharp enough? Why I can see the blemishes beneath the girl's make-up in the first picture. She'd probably like a little less focus. But I think these are wonderful captures, full of life and colour and stilled motion.
(I chickened out of facing the dragons/parade due to rain and crowds. Glad you brought back the goods to your blog).

Wonderful close ups and colours.
