Lion Dance – Chinese New Year 2017

Another long week. I was not going to allow something a trivial as a lack of sleep keep me from attending this year’s Lion Dance Festival in Chinatown. Got dressed in layer upon layer, I dragged my tired butt out into the cold and over to downtown Manhattan to Mott Street. And though I had been shooting mostly B&W as of late, I wanted to see how Fuji colors would handle the festival. Always bright and vibrant, it didn’t disappoint.
