Photographer's Note

I don't mean to sound flippant using this title. This is a Chinese Buddhist temple and the people praying here are very devout worshippers. What I meant by it is that, as a Christian I also prayed in this temple. And the caretakers of the temple were happy for me to do so. I asked these people if they minded me taking the photo, and they didn't. In my very humble opinion, the example set by these people's acceptance and tolerance of people who are different is an important key to the continued survival of mankind.

This photo was taken at Thean Hou Temple on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur during the lead-up to Chinese New Year which occurs this year on 24 January.
