Photographer's Note

I took this photo in the centre of the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai. The centrepiece of the temple is its 1.9m-high pale-green jade Buddha. A similarly elegant jade reclining Buddha can be found downstairs, opposite a much larger copy in stone.

In February, during the Lunar New Year some 20,000 Chinese Buddhists throng to pray for prosperity. The surrounding shops and hawkers can supply everything you need to generate good luck, including bundles of spirit money to burn in incense pots. (Lonely Planet)

I saturated some of the reds and oranges in order to bring out more of the colours that I remember from the day, before adding a border.
