Photographer's Note

A nice little market town is located in a suburb of Chengdu. It's also touristic and you can buy chili, chopsticks, spices, living bugs, you can sit down and have a tea and play majiang in a tea house or you can make a boat ride to temples in the near surrounding.

We went to the local temple there to pray for a save journey to Tibet. As china is under the administration of Buddha we thought western prayers won't do any good. So, together with our chinese friend we bought some joss sticks and went to the little romantic temple inside the market town and spent some reflective minutes.

I like this image because of its simplicity. The joss sticks have a nice magenta color and the background is of a simple grey/brown. I also like the sticks in the background that are very out of focus with the short DOF I have here.

Cropped, curved, saturated and USM.
