Photographer's Note

After last year's march on the Champs Elysées, the 2005 Chinese New Year in Paris came back to a normal size event in Paris. And franckly speaking, for me it was a nicer and happier experience since the crowd was less compact than one year ago.

Here, I was in the 13rd arrondissement, in the most famous asiatic area of Paris. People seemed very enthousiastic and happy to walk with the dragons and the to see the Martial Arts or dance exhibitions.

So, it was quite easy to walk around, run away from the powder blasts from everywhere and trying to get some nice portrait. So, let's start the serie for this happy new year of the Rooster.
