Chinese New Year

Christopher and I went to see the new year celebrations in China Town just over a week ago. It was a bit of a grey day so some of the exposures were a bit long and there's been a bit of motion blur, but there was a great atmosphere to the whole event.

Hopefully more photo opportunities coming soon as the weather improves and term settles down a bit.

My parents gave me a Canon 50mm lens for Christmas and I've been itching to try it out since then. Finally, with the end of exams, I've had some time to relax and take some pictures. The original plan was to go up to Heaton Park and photograph the llamas, goats etc, but sadly the weather was horrible so I had to make do with photographing Christopher instead. This is my first go at portraiture so please be kind....
