A rainy day with a lot of people carrying umbrellas made that great photo I was after a bit hard to obtain. It was nice to see so many people out in my neighbourhood enjoying the dance and excitement. Thanks to Bamboo Beads for allowing me to take some photos from inside their shop. Happy Year of the Dragon!

This is Fan Tan Alley. You can just see the lion's head below the red 16 1/2 sign. The fellows in white shirts did a great job of keeping the way clear for the dancers

The reflections from inside Bamboo Beads were cool, even if the lion isn't too clear!
