Chinese New Year parade, Barcelona, Spain

In February 2018, I was invited to be one of the official photographers at the Chinese New Year parade in Barcelona. To my delight I was assigned to the group led by the mayor, Ada Colau who was with the Ambassador of the Peoples Republic of China to the Kingdom of Spain, the Consul of China in Barcelona alongside business and political leaders representing Barcelona’s Chinese community.I was nervous as this was my first ever official photographic assignment!

It was a grey day with white cloud so not the best light for taking pictures; nonetheless, I think I captured the colour and enjoyment of the day.
