It's the start of the Chinese New Year today, and this year it's the turn of the dragon.
More about chinese astrology signs etc here. I am a tiger... grr!!
For a a dragon with a difference, go to Spitalfileds Market and see Roger's wonderful balloon creation outside Giraffe restaurant.
I have put some images of dragon together before here and here, but I have since found some more firey beasts to add to my collection, and none are in Gerrard Street, Chinatown, where the main Chinese new year celebrations will be in full swing.

Hi, thanks for the fantastic, and well-spotted collection of dragons. I love the variety of colours and poses. I recently wrote a blog on the Chinese New Year celebrations being held in London this weekend, and am looking forward to welcoming in the year of the dragon in Trafalgar Square :)ReplyDelete
