I had the opportunity to shoot at one of the local colleges in town for one of many Asian organizations in the area promoting cultural awareness through celebrating Chinese New Year. I had a wonderful time as I knew I would meeting people, learning more about the culture and enjoying in the pageantry and colors that are just a part of the Asian culture.
I hadn't shot in almost two months and definitely felt a little rusty but it's like riding a bike right! There were many other photographers present which must have been an interesting sight to see as we ducked and crawled around on the floor trying to get shots, not get in each others way and exchange "hello's" in the process. There wasn't shortage of sights to shoot during the 90 minute program. I took my fair share of photographs during the event but this photo of a little girl trying to REACH onto the stage during one of the performances is one of my early favorites. I believe will stand the test of time and I hope you agree. I call it "REACH".

Last year I did a shoot at McGraw Park with Puja and Karthika and I didn't quite finish with my editing because I got busy with other stuff. While cleaning some of my 2009 projects off the hard drive and putting the final touches on my last wedding for 2009, I ran across these photo's on Puja. I had to share these with you guys as I am tweaking out some split toning and Black and Whites. If you don't remember who Puja is, the first photo should be a good reminder. I hope you guys enjoy my experimenting.
