Happy Chinese New Year from Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
It didn’t seem as busy as usual in the city for the annual celebrations. Things even got off to a later start than usual, but once they did get going the atmosphere was great and people enjoyed watching the Unicorn visit all the various businesses in the Chinatown area the city.
The funfair and stalls at the top of the area were also rather quiet and I didn’t see any of the usual theatrical displays on the green area either.
Despite the feeling of melancholy the weather, the colours, and the sounds came together to make it a very enjoyable celebration and made for some great photography.
