happy chinese new year!!


patrons attacked & devoured during their meal

We were in Madison last night to attend a short film fest that friends (and friends of friends) were putting on. As talented as they are, it's difficult to take photos at a film fest and feature their abilities here. Any stills would've been when the lights went up, of people eating pizza. Nothing you need to see, frankly.

Immediately before arriving however, my (nerd) husband, had to stop at a nearby comic book store. Luckily for me, it's in the same strip mall as a Chinese restaurant, which, you guessed it...was celebrating the new year! The sound of the drums and firecrackers echoing through the storefronts was a bit hard to ignore. People from other shops were sticking their heads out to see what the calamity was about. I managed to capture a few shots before they headed indoors. The second image above was taken through the restaurant window. Looks like everyone was having a great time! But at that point in the festivities, I could've used some egg drop soup to warm my fingers in.

t, does this work to our advantage luck-wise?

now that you pointed it out, dan, i see the resemblance! pugs have chinese roots. maybe they evolved from dragons.

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
