Lunar New Year 2012

The Vietnamese community of Norcross celebrated the Lunar New Year, known as Tet Nguyen Dan, on Sunday January 22 at the Hong Kong Market on Jimmy Carter Boulevard.  This is the year of the Dragon, and two of them performed for the crowds in three retail stores and the parking lot.

Ong Dia helps guide the Dragons as they collect “Lucky Money” and chase away evil spirits.

I took a few trips to shoot Fall colors this year, and the first was to Pine Mountain Ridge in central western Georgia.  This area is in F.D. Roosevelt State Park, near the town of Pine Mountain ( and Calloway Gardens.  Unfortunately, at this time, the leaves on the ridge hadn't fully turned yet.

I shot this panorama around Dowdell’s Knob and it is easy to see I wasn’t very high above the plane of Harris County (1,395’).  This view is facing due east to Macon.
