    its been some time since i havent posted a little series.

    As you might, or might not now, this year is the year of the snake and here in Auckland, the biggest populated city in NEw Zealand, is quite a big deal, and its a 3 days celebration.

    Auckland having a bit more than 1.1 million people, 10% are only Chinese, and not even considering on the rest of Asia. It is considered, in fact, that more than half the population in Auckland is not "Kiwi" but Asian.

    So, again, Yes. Chinese New Year is a big celebration an quite a fun one. Lots of food stalls, lots of lanterns, Chinese shows, costumes, fireworks, etc.

    here are some of my photos for this year Chinese New Year,

    hope you guys like some!.

    For the gear heads. I used an OMD with a P25 only and a EPM2 with my new acquisition, the O9-18mm.
