Most cameras and mobile phone applications have a sepia setting for photographs. It often looks overdone. The Nikon D810 allows adjustment to the effect from ‘just a touch’ to ‘just discovered the sepia setting’. For these photos from Obong Confucian School, I turned on Sepia but kept it to the lowest setting. You can decide for yourself if sepia always sucks on digital or not.
I don’t know what is supposed to be on this pedestal. Perhaps something is placed there during ancestral rites. Maybe this is where dunces had to stand hundreds of years ago . . . .
The outside wall and corner of a stele. I like the design of this photo, but I’m not sure if I’ve said anything to the viewer with it. Other than, “Marcus knows how to set up a tripod and use a level.”
