Prayer Paper (Canon S90)

Many of the temples that once stood lonely on the Chinese landscape have now been incorporated into cities. At one such smoke-filled temple, pink prayer papers were tacked to the wall. These intriguing papers stood out on the rusted teal-painted metal wall. In a far corner, baby turtles splashed in a trough near the altar. The incense and water sounds masked the bustling city's noise and brought serenity to the worshipers. The shallow depth of field used in this composition helped to capture the magnitude of the pink prayer papers affixed to the temple's wall. Row after row, column after column.
