Photographer's Note

This is from one of the major temples in Kunming city in Yunnan province. Unfortunately I don't remember which one. Not even my diary from that journey in 1986 indicates clearly where I took this picture. Anyway, here's a little boy lighting an incense stick. The smoke will - if I understand it correctly - signify the separation of the pure from the impure and symbolize the human body as a meeting-place for heaven and earth.
Scanned from a Kodaschrome slide.
