Photographer's Note

As I had mentioned a few days ago, I have recently had reason to look through my devotion in the time of SARS series. This shot fits in with that category as well, although not exactly like the others.

This was taken at Lungshan Temple during the SARS outbreak. Rather than praying though, this man is aiding the devotion of others by polishing candle holders and lighting candles within the temple. This is actually the fourth shot of him I have posted. Two were just his hands, one was a full scale shot showing him lighting candles. Here he is lighting candles again, this time taking shelter from the SARS virus. The Lungshan Temple area of Taipei was one of the hardest hit neighborhoods when it came to SARS, so it was really brought home for the worshippers here.

In this shot, what I like is not just the man, but the colorfull background of the outer temple.
