Festive Lights – A Photo Essay

February is a busy month in Chinatown. The Chinese New Year celebration sees tourists and locals flock to its bustling marketplace where street vendors hawk everything from flaming red lanterns to Chinese traditional costumes. The thoroughfares are packed with people chortling and children rapturing with delight. Just like the copious amount of colourful candies in the stalls, brightly-lid decorations hang conspicuously above, illuminating the night sky into a brilliance of sparkling colours.

All images are shot with EOS 70D; EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM.



A writer on the weekdays and an amateur photographer on his days off, Darren enjoys both tremendously, and not forgetting good coffee, inspiring designs, beautiful movies, and exotic travels. Darren also believes that good conversations feed the soul of a writer, for there is nothing more invigorating than an inspiring exchange of ideas. To see more of his photos, visit
