Only the beginning of things to come.


The Chinese New year or Spring festival celebrations end on the evening of the 15th day of the first month in the chinese calendar. The fifteenth day of the new year is celebrated as Yuánxiāo jié (元宵節), otherwise known as “Chap Goh Mei” in “Fujian” dialect. End of celebration but it is just the beginning of ‘OX’ year.

  1. Well done, G. Exactly what “street photography” is all about. Ppl like to call it PJ. What’s in a name, but your work is good. A keen photographer’s eye. Well done. I can sense the mood, the energy and the captivating rhythms of the gongs,drums and cymbals… Well done. ALl unrehearsed, unposed, and untweaked. Cheers.
