How has everyone been? Am currently celebrating Chinese New Year over at where I am. Would first like to wish all of you guys a very prosperous Lunar New Year.
Just on Chinese New Year Eve, I met up with dice of nekoguchi over at Chinatown. Had wanted to take photos of the fireworks display that was to be set off around there at midnight.
It was already packed when we met up. Luckily, dice knew of a good location to take the fireworks from.
Lots of people on the roads. Kinda feels like Akihabara on a sunday, just without moe billboards, kawaii cosplayers.. ORZ
We recced the area for a bit. Here’s a shot of the traffic junction from our location.
Was trying out some shots of unsuspecting people. I do think it’s interesting as it creates another perspective and new experience in photography.
There were a whole lot of lanterns being hung at the Chinese temple nearby. Real spectacular sight.
If it was a whole row of windbells or moe goods, people will probably start grabbing them. Would been better if they were red packets with money in it ^^;
We didn’t visit the exhibition that was held in the Temple as there was a huge queue and had to rush back to our recced location for the fireworks.
Camera blur from rushing back to the location ^^;
Minutes just before midnight. Feels abit like the crowd while queuing up for Tokyo Game Show ^^;
Go Blue Ranger!
Red Ranger comes to the rescue!
White ranger pwns all!
It’s my second time taking photos of fireworks. Used a f-stop of 8.0 with an exposure of 3.2 seconds for each photo. 3 decent photos this time :)
And ending this post with a photo of dice whose picture I took while she was staring at something. Would like to thank her again for bringing me around Chinatown and also helping me carry the tripod. Hope it isn’t too heavy ^^;
So, how was your Chinese New Year Celebrations like? Hope you get loads of red packets to spend on moe and otaku goods ^^
