Tai Hang Dragon Dance


The Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance is an example of Hong Kong's traditional culture and a main part of the celebrations of the Mid Autumn Festival.

Tai Hang is an area in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island, where the origins of this tradition took place over a century ago.

The Tai Hang Fire Dragon tradition started when the village was ravaged by a typhoon and a plague on the eve of the Mid Autumn festival.

I have not really explored night/street photography but I had fun capturing the atmosphere of the event and its people. The blue hues and incense smoke that filled the air give the pictures a Blade Runner Esque vibe to them.
