I’m unsure of what the Chinese characters read; sometimes the finer details of things are a mystery for a non-local.

Incense sticks and/or coils are often prevalent in Taoist temples.

As a travel photography tip, I positioned myself under the coil and used my zoom lens to fill the frame with the coil.

As a photographer, filling the frame (having your subject take up the frame) is an underutilized photography technique.

This is a travel image from Hoi An, Vietnam.  To view my entire collection from Hoi An click on the coil or Chinese characters above.

Very nice shot and filling the frame with the coil makes for an interesting image that can turn even a simple incense coil into something great to look at. Great shot keep on clicking!
