Drum Rolls

Drum rolls

The burning of joss paper is part of the religious tradition of the Chinese culture. To ensure safety, these barrels are provided by our town councils for such burning activity to be conducted in. This woman was ready to do so with her joss paper in hand. The main reason I took this photo, however, isn’t really from our Chinese cultural point of view. I’m coming more from the memory of an 80’s icon. Anyone remember the arcade game Donkey Kong?
