Photographer's Note

Another face of contrastful Shanghai. Buddhist monks at the Longhua temple in Southern Shanghai (Xuhui District). The Longhua temple is, in my opinion, the nicest temple in Shanghai, and offers a nice break from the city's hectic atmosphere, (whether you are religious or not).
Some of my Chinese friends explained they go there to ask for economic prosperity (i.e. more money!!) around the Spring Festival, even though religion otherwise played no important role in their lives. In this way, Buddhism, like any other religion takes on a variety of local, cultural forms.
