Picture Perfect Competition Time # Ethnic

Welcome To Picture Perfect and the first of the Competition Themes.

One of Two Giant Paaifong in Chinese or Archways in English, this night photo is the gateway to Adelaide's  very own Chinatown precinct. Guarded by two Chinese Lions this area situated in the Adelaide Market is dedicated to the Ethnic population of Chinese people who run many of the businesses in this part of the city. Such as grocery stores, restaurants and market stalls. We have many Ethnic communities in our city and it was a toss up for me to use a photo of the Buddhist temple high up on the hill facing the sea near my home but unfortunately the best photos of Buddha facing the sea is from a boat and that was not meant to be today for me.
