Taken at the Tam Son Hoi Quan Pagoda in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Cross-processed for consistency with the other photos from this trip. The beam of light is very real!

    Love the light – and the desaturation/cross-processing – it creates such a wonderful mood.
    PS: These are incense cones?

  • Thanks Vikram … they’re incense coils. It’s like one big stick that was just wound around. I think that I read that they burn continuously for a week. At the rate that I burn incense in my house, I should have just brought a couple of these back in my suitcase!!
