Raise the Red Lantern
The Victoria Chinatown is the oldest in North America and although small, it is brimming with history and interesting detail. Fan Tan Alley and Dragon’s Alley are mysterious and intriguing. I have always been mesmorized by red lanterns with their bold yet delicate beauty. The red glow creates a festive and flattering atmosphere. Here are some shots I took while wandering at dusk through the nooks and crannies of Chinatown.
