Saturday I went to the Golden Dragon parade celebrating Chinese New Year with some friends, and my pictures are up.

I’m really happy with how these came out, since this is the first time I went shooting with my giant (70-300mm) lens and did manual focus the entire time.

I will say, this is the first parade I’ve been to in a while, and I’d forgotten how incredibly repetitive parades are: Dragon, dragon, float, marching band, dragon, marching band, Kung Fu school, dragon, dragon, marching band, dragon….
