Incense tower

As far as I know, these are called "incense tower". I found this roadside worship place in an alley I walk past from time to time, but had never taken much notice of. From what I heard when I took the photo, it is a Taoist worship place. I only managed to take a few shots because it was very very smokey.

Great colours in your photos. I particularly like the Wong Kar Wai one! Nice work!

Great photo! Amazing that they burn them all at once - that must be quite an odour for the whole neighborhood!

That is so cool - I thought they were hats at first! Does it smell good there? I love incense, but I never saw it in this shape before.

Hi, Lisi.

Just like Sam, I thought they were hats as well! Interesting picture :)

Hi thank you for the comments. The incense smell ok to me although it was a bit too strong having that many at one time. Frankly, this is the first time I saw this; and in an area I'm familiar with it's like discovering a hidden secret in your own home!
