Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting a Chinese New Year celebration at Northside Baptist Church which has a large Chinese congregation. I thought that it was a really fun event even though I admittedly only understood about 15% of what was going on. This year is the year of the Dragon and since I was born in a year of the Dragon (please don't do the math on that) I'm anticipating it being a good one (that's how that works right?) Anyway, here are my two favorite images from the assignment:

I didn't turn this one in but this adorable little fella had no idea what to do about me and my giant camera.

Happy New Year!
