Asian New Year Celebration – Lien Hoa Buddhist Temple
I had a great time today making photos at a Vietnamese New Year celebration at Lien Hoa Buddhist temple in San Antonio. My friend, Le, called this morning to see if I wanted to shoot it, and I couldn’t pass it up.
The four of us – me, Le, Venda, and my son Will – drove to the temple around noon to see what was going on. It was a great time. There was music, traditional performances, tons of fantastic Vietnamese food, and a bunch of smiling faces. I was able to get some pretty good shots – at least enough to make a good slideshow. I also happened to have my little Flip video camera that I used to record audio, that I then exported to MP3 from the original video using Final Cut Pro. It was an impromptu fix, but it worked out great, and made me realize that I don’t need to buy a pocket audio recorder in addition to the pocket video.
