The tour and route allowed me to immerse myself into the gestalt of Chinatown. Our leader was very knowledgeable about the community and was superb at distilling concepts about street photography into comments on our efforts to create art off the street. I would take workshops with Zim every week if I could.


Fun couple of hours. Besides great photography tips, our guide Zim knew a lot of info and history about the area.
