Happy Lunar New Year!

This weekend I picked up my camera, grabbed my 50mm lens & lensbaby, and moved amongst the beating drums, dragons, and life of Chinatown. I missed the festivities in NYC last year, so this was my first experience here. Chinatown is very much alive on a daily basis, so multiply that by 100 for new year's - the energy levels were busting at the seams!

Here are a few of my favorite shots. More on my flickr.
