This has been an awesome week so far! After much research and debate, I finally selected which camera to I wanted to purchase!! In order to test it out and become familiar with its functions, I decided to photograph Chinese New Year décor which is popping up all over the city. I have to admit it was a fun adventure and I am very pleased with some of the shots!! I have also included some photos from previous years which have been clearly labelled as such!!
What can I say!! I love Chinese New Year and all the red and gold that goes along with it. I love the sense of anticipation leading up to the holidays. I love how kids’ eyes light up at the thought of ‘lucky money’ in red envelopes. I love how the older generations anxiously await for their family members to return from afar. I love how the entire days leading up to this big, major celebration that can be seen and felt in the markets, streets, and homes all over Taiwan. I love how the Chinese New Year’s Eve Feast Menu is created. And most of all, I love getting a week off of work!!
And with all that being said……
