Thousands of visitors came to Chinatown in Newcastle Upon Tyne to watch and take part in the Chinese New Year celebrations to mark The Year of the Rooster.
Chinese New Year is China’s most important traditional festival and brings families and communities together for a week long public holiday.
TECH STUFF: All pictures in this set were taken on a pair of Leica M9 cameras fitted with 50mm f2 Summicron and 35mm F2 Summicron lenses. The 50mm lens was fitted with a 3-stop ND filter to allow for pictures to be taken at the f2 aperture in the bright sunshine. All pictures were subsequently edited with minor adjustments made in Lightroom and in line with standard editorial editing guidelines. No picture has been doctored or altered in any way.
