    I don't know where to post this but since it is mainly about people I have posted them here. Moderator please feel free to move this where you feel appropriate. Thanks!

    The Lungshan (Dragon Mountain) Temple is Taipei's oldest and most popular temple and also is one of Taiwan's premier religious edifices. It was built in 1783 and has since been rebuilt a few times due to the numerous natural disasters and the devastation of war over the centuries. If you ever visit Taiwan this place is a must-visit.

    The temple's architecture is a three-section design in shape. There are the front hall, the rear hall and the right and left dragons protecting the middle hall. The layout is square and serene.

    I took the opportunity to do some PJ work while I was there recently.

    #1 A hive of activity at the front hall. Notice the carved dragon columns.

    Thanks Roy! I have never spent so much time in a temple before...about 5 hrs. Too bad I forgot my tripod. :redface:

    Thank you Gordon! Photojournalistic work can be fun too.
