Highlights of the Parade , Chinese New Year at china town Los Angeles , This time i am prepared with everything i used my 50mm prime lens open wide at 1.8 with a Hoya CircularPolarizing filter and Bower Skylight B1 attached to the lens so i will not worry about any blownouts cause by hard lights , And if it turnout cloudy i could just turn my CPL and the filter will go lighter in color.
The LAPD keeps telling me to get out of the street i told him why me? there are more than 300 of us photographers on the street !
By the way i am the only one with a small lens all of them including my brother has a big lens attached to there camera..ha ha! so i have no option but to go near as i can to the subjects..as near as 4 feet!! Lol!
I also saw some Lady Blogger's from other community who met up at the parade , they assembled near where i am standing , its really good to see active community members in actions..I wish PB members who are in LA will do it too someday …
Oh one thing , we ate at one of the Szechwan resto , we thought it was good for 2 Oh my god ! when they started serving the shrimp in lobster sauce and szechwan beef its good for 4 person per serving !!! we end up force feeding ourself i feel sleepy..ha ha!
