Smoke gets in your eyes: The Man Mo Temple, Hong Kong

My eyes were red and my head was hurting. It felt like All Saints’ Day in Manila in an indoor cemetery. But I knew that if I held my breath long enough, I would come out with good pictures. It was beautiful, specially when light from above illuminated the smoke and the coils.

If the incense is indeed food to the spirits, they must be having a buffet.

The Man Mo Temple was built in 1847 to pay tribute to Man Cheung, the God of Literature, and Kwan Yu, the God of War.
