San Francisco's Chinese New Year Parade - Year of the Ram

March 08, 2015  •  5 Comments

This year the parade was held almost a month later than normal -- March 7th instead of early to mid-February -- making shooting a little easier because of the extra light. Add to that unseasonably warm weather and an enthusiastic crowd, and you have the makings for a great New Year's celebration.

The first two photos are from the street fair in Chinatown. Some elderly Chinese musicians were encouraging spectators to try their hand at playing one of their traditional stringed instruments. The rest are scenes from the evening parade, which begins at Market & 2nd and winds its way through the streets of San Francisco.

(As always, apologies for the watermarks -- just trying to protect my images from the bad guys.)

Outstanding! You really captured the people involved especially loved all the shots of them doing their "selfies". The colors are fantastic.
