Chinese New Year celebrations in Newcastle Upon Tyne yesterday as the dragon snakes its way down Stowell Street. Processed using the Lucis Arts plug in. For some unkown reason the crowds were absolutely MASSIVE this year, the threatened snow did not materialise and it was extremely difficult to find good shooting positions and conditions. Most of my shots were not clever, no more than "snaps", but at least I managed to record some of the event with "MIssy" by my side. We couldn't stay all day because we needed to be back to the hospital in South Shields.
My wife has been admitted to hospital with a terminal illness and I have two children and a part time job to look after. I have pre-posted pictures up until Sunday, not sure when I will be back on a regular daily basis. Just hoping that it won't be too long.
