Stone lanterns

Hsinchu, Taiwan, 2012. I thought stone lanterns was created by Japanese as you can easily find them around in Japanese temples. Until I checked Wikipedia and realized it was originally from China, but you don’t see it that many as in Japan now. Watched a Japanese movie “Chronicle of My Mother (わが母の記)” the other night, one of the scene was a girl lighted up a candle and put it inside the stone lantern which reminded me this photo shot in 2012 Chinese New Year.

Nikon FE, Mir-24N 2/35. Bulk Chinese Lucky Aerial film 200.
