Tomorrow is Hungry Ghost Festival, anyway we celebrate it since the begin of the month of 7th according to Chinese Lunar Calendar.
Although the method of celebrate or worshipping in the Hungry Ghost Festival is a bit different in different region, but the purpose is same, this festival is for worshipping ghost, death encestors or the pass away family members.
According to the traditional believing of Chinese community, the gate of hell is open at the 7th month in Lunar Calendar, they believe that the ghost or the soul of death people will come back to the place where they live before, so that the alive people are try to make the ghost happy with offering them foods, paper-made items like costumes, houses, cars and etc, organisers also hold traditional opera or modern show to entertain the ghost too.
The above photo is showing a Taoism altar for Hungry Ghost Festival. Everywhere is colourful and full with paper-made items, foods for offering and believers. See more photos and explainations by follow the external link at below :-

My first impression, I thought the background was a tapestry. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the of the Taoism altar. The colours are impressive like in a painting. Have a nice day.

I love the shooting angle giving more impact to the shot and you are close enough to register its full features and the array of vibrant colours Its fairly low light taken without flash but sharpness is not compromised and so luminous with good people interaction. Excellent photo work to record the event at the annual festival. Congrats and tfs

Wonderful picture, with many details to admire and recreation, the colorful decoration is full with that as detailed in paints and fabric hangings.
A magnificent lighting, as well as the sharpness.
Well done. I like.
