with a prayer in her heart..

I took this picture on my visit to the city of Hue, which was the ancient capital of Vietnam. Hue is littered with spectacular mausoleums, pagodas and temples and they all depict the wonderful craftsmanship of the ancient Vietnamese people.

 

Outside one of these temples, I saw this lady who lit a few incense sticks and then sat there praying. Initially I took a shot of just the incense sticks but keeping her in the background added more meaning to this image. Hope you guys like it.

 

Have a happy weekend all my friend!!
