But of course we must celebrate the year of the dragon. I had forgotten. I like the way you lit this shot. Good contrast and drama.

I did enjoy the year of the rabbit, but a dragon seems a bit more exciting. :)

Looks like one of the fierce kind from olden times.
Now they seem to be more lovable! Better he stay, proud, on his pedestal, me thinks. Your shot looking up is appropriate!!

Indeed, let there be dragons. We have our major CNY parade next Sunday evening and I am going along with my photography buddies to see what I can snag. Might need a 'Weekend in Red & Yellow' to post it on, though.
