Dragon Boat Races

Annually in Flushing Meadow Park, the Dragon boat races occur. There is a linear boat course marked out for teams of paddlers. The dragon boat teams are quite spirited and everyone has good time. This group had a lot of energy. Dragons are good luck. And the noise is to ward off or scare away bad spirits. It was very noisy. It works.

  2. I had to enlarge this image to see the emotion of it. There was much going on that you can not see at the small scale. It is a beautiful, magazine quality image.
