Flushing Chinese New Year Parade

The Chinese New Year parade in Flushing, Queens on Saturday included a dozen or so lions and even a dragon. Unfortunately, I was not able to get a good shot of the dragon as it danced past the crowds. Here is a collage of three lions from the parade.

So how was your weekend?

Wow, it's so exotic and colourful! I like the yellow and blue outfits, those are the colours of Verona and both of the town's soccer teams'.
... So you managed to put three photos into one...so clever, Ming"!
I hope your week end was better than mine, I didn't feel so well so I have been buried at home...

Half really sunny (Saturdey) and half quite rainy ((Sunday).
I'd love too to see a dragon like that!

I made a post about the Paris Chines parade last year, so I decided not to make it this year - although I was tempted! At least I went to (one of our Chinatown(s) Saturday evening for dinner!

Ming, great collage...is this called "stitching" - building the collage? Really great idea. Each one interesting-together, powerful.

Thanks for sharing.

Weekend of basketball and football-UCLA wins 2 and the Cards lose at the last!

Very colourful. We don't have this round here in Cheltenham. I suppose they do in the bigger UK Cities.

My weekend? Good thanks. Restful on Saturday, working yesterday, but off today. And it snowing!

How was your weekend Ming?

Doris -- This is just a collage. It is not stitching. Stitching involves combining multiple photos of the similar views to create a panoramic image. Click here to see an an example.

Marley -- My weekend was great. The weather finally warmed up a little on Sunday and I went to Central Park to soak in the sun.

No dragons in my weekend, just my two dogs trying to kill each other...argh!

A great weekend....
Saturday I went to a Dessert and Cabaret evening, which was really good, and then on Sunday the whole family were at my house for a SuperBowl party.... not that I have the faintest clue about football. We gambled quarters, and I lost all my money! Boohoo!

Alexa said...

Hey, Ming -- Great photos! How did you do the collage?
I had a lazy weekend—and managed to catch only the exciting parts of the Superbowl, and the Boss!
How about you?
