    I went for a walk to Chinatown in New York, on Monday and l did these shots so I wanted to share with you. The sign of the Dragon part of Chinese astrology and the ancient Eastern cultures, is considered the serpent as an animal of good luck. As in ancient China is considered the guardian of the treasures of wisdom well.

    Freddytto, these are fantastic, and seeing the last two in larger size makes a big difference in presentation.

    Fantastic photos Freddytto! Shooting in crowds is not easy to do (not for me anyway).

    I'm amazed by how rich the colours came out in your photos in spite of an overcast day.
