Wishing you all, a Happy Chinese New Year!! (Or I suppose to be more politically correct, Happy Lunar New Year.) A time to reflect and to look ahead. A time to spend with family.
During my last trip to Hong Kong, every where we went, we saw people preparing for the holiday. Selling ingredients for traditional dishes for celebrations, purchasing decorations, and stuffing red envelopes (or lai see).
While walking down a small alley full of street vendors, I saw this stall selling lanterns. With the sun shining behind it, to me, it was the perfect representation of the festive and happy holiday.
