Temple incense.

Another bit of reworking.

Man Mo Temple. Sheung Wan. Hong Kong. Everybody takes this picture in some form. Mostly, I’ve seen it with many rows of incense coils. It’s a stock travel staple. I’ve probably shot the location 15 or 16 times. Nothing really changes. The temple was built in 1847. It’s reputed to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, buildings in the city. The gods of Man and Mo literally translate to “civil” and “martial.” Man is also regarded as the god of literature, while Mo is regarded as the god of War.

The picture. Again, I made it first on black and white film, printed it, scanned it and did most of the manipulations digitally. I’ve found a couple of these reworked pieces interesting from a standpoint of adding color. You can see blues, yellows and a sort of purplish color throughout the picture. Ah. The magic of digital post production. Or, at least digital filtering.
