colorful incense sticks for Buddhist prayers

“The custom of burning incense is an indispensable feature of the spiritual lives of Vietnamese people. It’s believed that an incense stick is a bridge that connects the afterlife with the real life. By lighting one we are inviting our ancestors back to the earth to re-visit us and enjoy whatever offerings we’ve laid out.”

Very impressive display, vibrant colours and solid shapes.
I for one like the scent of the incense but it's a love it, hate it for most.

Hi Tsilla, a very nice crop of the colorful incense, until I read your note I thought that they were brushes. Well done & TFS

Didn't know that incense came in different colors, they look so pretty. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.

Olá Tsilla,
Nice arrangment of this set. Warm colors, very well distributed.
Excellent circular crop.
Unique and original.

Hello Tsilla, a different type of presentation but one which immediately catches the eye.
The incense sticks offer an unusual texture, and a lovely array of colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Tsilla, this is a very eye catching display, great capture and interesting note, TFS,

From the thumbnail it looked like a close up of some exotic flower. But it turned out to be more than that! Well cropped and composed. You made an already special arrangement very special. TFS
