Daily Photo – The Night Before Chinese New Year in London

Here I am in Chinatown in London around midnight. It was the evening before the Chinese New Year and everyone was getting pretty excited. The next night was to be absolute chaos, but this night things still had a nice electricity in the air.

I also made a little video here of what things looked and felt like… sometimes I record little videos here and there to remind myself. I don't usually publish them because the editing takes so long! So I just kind of save them for myself. It helps when I edit the photo later to remind me of how things felt at the time.

    I had to chuckle at your comment about videos. That’s how I got into photography. At fisrt I was all about creating videos to help tourists see my area before they arrive. That was entirely too much work so I strated sharing more and more photos.

    Love videos, but they are a lot of work!

    London is my
    favorite traveling destination. I have been there many times during my whole
    traveling life. I have again plan to go there on coming Christmas and New Year
    with my family before our nyc to durham
    tours. I am going there first time for these great celebrations. I
    hope it will prove a nice experience of my traveling life.
