Chinese New Year in London: meet up 22/02/15

Hi!

The Chinese New Year celebrations are upon us on the 19 February.
In London there will be a parade and local events around Chinatown on the 22/02 starting at 10AM.

See: https://www.london.gov.uk/get-involv...-new-year-2015

http://www.visitlondon.com/things-to...2015-in-london

It would be great to have a meet up!
I'll suggest 10AM at the Leicester Square tube station exit
In Cranbourn St.

Hope to see you there!

Yes, I suggest swapping mobile numbers by PM and Pret-a-Manger on the East end of street.

Smile 22/02 at the Chinese New Year

Not sure if I can make it, but is it going to be a specific camera themed day, rangefinder/film slr, or just 'shoot what you bring'?

It's in my diary, and I hope to be there, but there are a lot of contingent factors.

Hi!

Besides the above, a mate and his friend are joining in.

Paul
If you PM me your mobile, I'll do the same. So, in case you arrive later, and I might arrive later as well. we can call each other and find where one is.

And one of those contingent factors has come into play, I'm afraid. My breathing is really quite rubbish at the moment, so I will have to duck out.

I hope you all have a good time, and get some great shots. I look forward to seeing the results posted on here.

I'll try to get along to future meets.

It was a very nice day until it started raining.

I want to thank Vinh for joining Noel, Jason, Carol and myself.
Pictures will follow in a few days.

Yes, worse things happen!

Yesterday, the worst was when I went to greet Vinh: in 30 years it was the 2nd time that I remember dropping my camera on asphalt.
As a testament to the durability and toughness of the OM-1, the only thing it got was a new dent on the baseplate and I carry on using it for the rest of the day.

Well, here are some from CNY 2015.

This is all from the parade I could see:

I was more interested in the crowds:

There were also plenty of stalls:

Some were just going about their daily lives:

We saw lots of cameras:

These iphonographers were busy at it:

And this was our group. Sorry for the sneaky from behind!
From left to right: Noel, Vinh, Jason talking with Carol

Someone in the crowd cumplimented me for the OM and pointed to Vinh and said he was "hardcore". Here is Vinh in action with his Rolleiflex:

Our group negotiating some street furniture:

At the end, it was nice to see some taking a different approach to a New Year.
I hope she said "yes":

Well, that was it!
Thanks to Vinh, Noel, Jason and Carol for the great day.

Thanks Ricardo, its a very nice morning and seeing you and Noah in actions with your super stealth shots. I'm rather very obvious photographing but ppl on the day is very open to snapshots. Hope to have more gatherings in the near future.
