Raise the Red Lantern

The same day I stumbled across this Jimi Hendrix shrine in Strathcona, I noticed for the first time the red light posts in nearby Chinatown. Vancouver's traditional Chinatown is losing some of its lustre as rival Richmond (a suburb south of Vancouver with a large Chinese community) grows in popularity. However, it is still a visually fascinating place to visit. There was something about the straight lines of the red lamp post here, combined with the almost spider-web effect of the tree branches behind it that made this photo stand out for me.
