Downtown Chinatown...

San Francisco's Chinatown is like being in another country. There is much to explore! I like the oriental lanterns rather than city's contemporary streetlights, they have a lot of character. The smaller red lanterns make everything very festive! When the markets are open, you can barely walk through on the sidewalk. People are looking for the freshest fish, or the best oranges, it's a lot of fun to watch and photograph!

To make this photo, I shot down the street capturing all the signs and lanterns. It's a busy composition that reflects the activity here. Topaz Adjust was used to enhance the detail and color in the image. Definitely have mooncakes at the corner bakery, Bill Clinton was here too! Have fun shooting ! ~ Deb
