Hangzhou is a large town located a couple of hours (by fast train) from Shanghai. It is popular because of its large lakes and attractive green scenery.
On this occasion, I visited during the Spring Festival and it was very busy. Never the less, I had a nice time. It was lovely to sit by the lake and watch groups of people flow by.
I believe I was using an NEX5n with the little 18-55mm lens, which I think did a nice job with little fuss. As I look at it now, I wonder what a tighter crop with just the ox and bridge would have looked like.
