Chinese New Year Celebrations

Published March 9th, 2012

On Sunday morning I joined a group of photographers outside Embankment tube station in London on a cold, grey and gloomy day. I’d joined a group via called “We Shoot People!” and joined them for a street photography walk around Trafalgar Square.

I was armed with my very entry level Canon EOS D1100D DSLR camera and my trusty old Sony CyberShot DSC-HX5 (which I didn’t use in the end!). We set off around 11:00AM, and entered the sea of people gathering in Trafalgar Square and Chinatown for the Chinese New Year celebrations, here are my beginner photos from the event.
