A Careful Choice, in Chinatown

Tough choice
Photo by myself in Chinatown, Brooklyn.

Celebrations for Chinese New Year were going on Sunday, all along 8th Avenue in Brooklyn's Chinatown. Drums were beating while families walked about. Children purchased harmless firecrackers and silly string.

The boy above made his selection of Silly String after weighing his options.


For those who don't know, 2009 is the year of the Ox in Chinese astrology.

The Ox is known for being hardworking and dependable, which makes sense for our world situation. Hopefully we will reap the benefits of our hard work next year.

Look at his eyes! I remember being that age and every day brought something new. The world was one large curiosity box and the opportunities were endless. (Can you tell I had a happy childhood? :-) )
