Incensed

By ColleenA
Good day...
Thank you for your great response to my Fall of saigon images...thank you to Irishkate, Dave (Mistere) , Martyn (Brandish) and Bernie (BRITCHIE) for their UA,s
Still in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) today...
These are huge spiral burning hanging incense that hang from the ceiling of this 18th Century Thien Hau Temple, (see V2) dedicated to the Goddess protector of sailors, the heavy scent of incense welcomes you, in fact I found it over powering and it gave me a headache.
The other versions more images of the temple
Have a great day..

These incense burners drive me bonkers, Colleen! Every now and again Mo is seduced by the lovely burners, and the beautifully coloured wrappers promising peace,serenity and beauty if you light these infernal things in the house!!! They only succeed in giving me an astounding headache, and my breathing closes up for a week! Regards Martin

Another fine set you've got us into!
Agree about the smells.
My eyes water in a soap or candle shop so this many joss springs would probably finish me off!

Great series.

Interesting and wonderful images as part of your ongoing travelogue.
I remember visiting a house in Folk Club days and people using incense - think
that was before drugs. I guess they have the same effect - I can't even bear lillies in the house!
I like V5 and V6 along with lead image.

These images bring back memories of the '60s ( just ), when I was a carefree lad hanging about it smoky jazz clubs. Think my headache was caused by other things though Colleen.

lovely shots Colleen, I love incense but only in small doses. I can remember a long time ago, one Christmas Eve Mass they lit the incense and processed round the church, the vicar finished up coughing and spluttering and red faced, nearly having choked on it
