Chinatown, London, 29 Jan 2006 - Chinese New Year's Celebrations.
'Lions' (often confused with dragons) dancing in the street.
I had borrowed a Sigma 12-24mm lens from a friend and decided to use it throughout the event to force myself to be creative. It came in extremely handy once in the packed Chinatown streets - the only time you can get a good look at the lions is when they're a metre away from you!
