Still trying to find the time to edit all the images from the just completed trip to the UK, France, China and Japan. (See previous post below).
Came across these two when doing a further cursory edit yesterday.
The top image was made at the Sensoji Temple in Asakusa Tokyo Japan. A Buddhist devotee is praying amidst the incense smoke – worshippers believe that immersing oneself in the smoke purifies, heals and brings good luck. The temple complex dates back to 645AD.
The second image was made at the village of Beizhai about an hours drive from Beijing China. An itinerant worker rests from the carting of all his possessions.
