Man Mo Temple
There are a bunch of really old Buddhist Temples in Hong Kong. The most famous being, the Man Mo Temple. I hung out for about 2 hours drawing this. It was difficult because there is so much sandalwood incense burning that it is nearly impossible to breath. Most people enter for about 10 minutes to pray. I'm talking about thousands of incense sticks burning, some of them quite huge. At points, it is hard to just see 2 feet in front of you. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. It is actually amazing to walk into this kind of atmosphere. Your senses are assaulted from all directions. I loved it even though I was going to pass out at any minute. Of course, the old ladies all greeted me and took an interest in my drawing. Must be my Axe cologne.
