During this Chinese New Year, I brought my family down to the Esplanade for some performances. This is a slew of performances put together by Sheng Hong Arts Institute Chinese Dance Department, Nanyang Polytechnic Chinese Orchestra Percussion Ensemble & Tian Eng Dragon and Lion Dance Centre. (新加坡城隍艺术学院华族舞蹈系、
南洋理工华乐团打击乐小组与天鹰龙狮学院). Unfortunately, by the time my family and I finished our dinner, we can only find sitting places on the steps in one corner, as evident from all the shooting angles below.
And finally my favorite segment, the drum performance. They made it more interesting and spectacular by dusting the drums with what smelt like Talcom powder before hitting them.
Equipment: Olympus E-5 with Zuiko 50-200mm F2.8-3.5 SWD lens.
