Photographer's Note

This is Beijing Lu (road) in Guangzhou, one of the most popular streets in the city itself.

The red lanterns really made me want to take this picture along with the sea of heads underneath them.

Red in China or to the Chinese means prosperity and happiness, red is also seen in marriages, where the wife to be wears a red dress.

The street as you can see is absolutely filled with people buying their New Year goods, to start a fresh as from January the 22nd for two weeks on.

There will be Lion Dancing and Dragon dancing on the streets to bring good luck for everyone, it is a myth and superstition but many Chinese people want to believe in it.

Please dont try counting the number of lanterns but enjoy the pictures
