2011 San Francisco Chinese New Year’s Parade a Huge Success, Despite the Rain – Photos From David Yu

Monday, February 21st, 2011

(My Canon 1D Mark Whatever SLR died an early death at 140,000 clicks* possibly due to the fact that I wasn’t ascared of a little (or a lot) of rain. Nowadays I’m def. skittish, but no matter,) you can always count on famous photographer David Yu to be on the scene rain or dry.

As he was last Saturday night in Chinatown and North Beach and SoMA and the Financh and all over.

Check out his gallery of Year of the Rabbit festivities, why not?

Bunnies!

Whoahhh Bundy!

SuperLotto? No thanks! But SuperLotto PLUS? Sounds intriguing…

And look who else was there – it’s your newly-minted Supervisor Malia Cohen:

(Yowser)

And your just-as-newly-minted Mayor Edwin Lee in the official San Francisco staff car, formerly used by General Burkhalter:

See you next year! (In scary, scary 2012, the year of the Dragon.)

*200,000 was the expected number of clicks I believe I was owed. ($300 minimum for a new shutter.) OTOH, my 5D Mark I has probably already exceeded its expected shutter life so I s’pose I shouldn’t complain too much. Living on borrowed time tho.

June Quan Crowned Miss Chinatown USA 2011 – Big Chinese New Year’s Parade Saturday Night

Friday, February 18th, 2011

Of course famous photographer David Yu was on the scene when June Quan was crowned Miss Chinatown USA for 2011.

The Coronation Ball is tonight, see below, and, of course, the big parade is tomorrow night.

(Don’t even take along a brolly to the parade – you’ll stay dry this year, most likely, Gaia willing…) [UPDATE: The Internet MIC just came by my house and tore up my prognosticator license. From now on, I'll leave this kind of stuff to the experts.]

From David Yu

Bon Courage to June Quan and all the participants.
