Happy Lunar New Year! 2021 The year of the Ox!

Happy Lunar New Year! 2021 The year of the Ox!

Let us all plough forward from last year and reconnect when the time is right!

 

Hello everyone!

The New Lunar year will begin on February 12, 2021 and will be the year of the Ox! 

According to Chinese mythology, long ago the Jade Emperor, who was the ruler of the heavens, wanted to select 12 animals for his calendar.  A great race was announced and these animals won starting with the rat. 

They have become the basis for the Chinese zodiac signs which repeats in a cycle of 12 years.  It is also believed, that each animal has certain general characteristics, and people born under the animal sign for the year, will have inherit these characteristics to varying degrees.

So to celebrate the New Year, we have prepared special rolls of 35mm film (Kodak Gold 200 36 Exp.) to purchase, and will also give out cards with one of 12 Chinese Zodiac signs for you to collect towards your next photographic adventure!

Who knows what sign you will get! If you know someone with the sign you got, take this opportunity and reconnect with them when the time is right!  Also, see if their characteristics hold true or not. You'll never know what you will learn about them.

Even if you can’t find someone with the sign you got, may this result in joyous conversation and uproarious laughter! And may the memories of the adventure be captured and cherished for years to come.

These are some of our well wishes for all in 2021!
