People need to know this stuff is real. The dragons and all. Dragon-god of my wife. Photographed him accidentally when taking pics in Longshan temple…
Notice the “smoke dragon” which seems to enter from the gate on the left and then wrapping itself around the stone column, following what the stone dragon does.
I only enhanced contrast and illumination, I did not manipulate the smoke!
Here is the original jpeg as taken by the camera (in parallel with the RAW file from which the enhanced image above is produced. The smoke dragon is already there, but harder to be seen. Adjusting contrast and illumination and adding a Photoshop-spotlight (which selectively lights up parts of the image) did the trick to show the dragon clearer as above without disturbing the rest of the image.
Remind me never to make jokes about the favorite God of my wife again. BTW, I did not notice the smoke dragon when I took the photo, only when reviewing the pics at home. I almost fell off my chair.
So… if so many believers think about a dragon god when being in a temple, will it somehow influence the sub-atomic particles of the smoke molecules, influencing their cohesion? Does their quantum signature become that of a dragon? Or do they… call… something…?
