This is the Type of Photo I Love to Take Lately

This is the type of photo I took recently in the Man Mo Temple.

Without any tripod, I took a deep breadth, hold my breath and clicked.. . . . . . . .

While the joystick incense remained stationery,  the smoke from the burning incense drifted into the air, illuminated by natural light coming through the roof.

A thousand years seem to have gone past while I took the picture ( actually I was down to 1/14 second).DSCF0158

I am not a follower of the Buddhist, although I sincerely believe many of the teachings are applicable to daily life.

According to a report issued by the John Hopkins University:

“Many religious traditions have contended that burning incense is good for the soul. Now, biologists have learned that it is good for our brains too. An international team of scientists, including researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, describe how burning frankincense (resin from the Boswellia plant) activates poorly understood ion channels in the brain to alleviate anxiety or depression. This suggests that an entirely new class of depression and anxiety drugs might be right under our noses.”

Hope it will have the same effect on you on seeing this image 🙂
