Lunar New Year in Melbourne

Its Lunar New Year and its the year of the Goat!

There have been celebrations across the city of Melbourne. Today we went to China town, to get amongst the action! It seemed like there was loin dancing on every corner, it turns out that restaurants arrange to get the lion dance in front of their place for good fortune. the sound of the firecrackers was deafening! I used a 50mm 1.4 lens for most of the images here.

Took the opportunity to take some portraits today as well. Vanessa is wearing an Ao Dai, Vietnamese traditional dress.

Hope you enjoy!
