A mani wheel, or hand prayer wheel being spun around during a religious festival in Leh, India
A prayer wheel is of a hollow metal cylinder, often beautifully embossed, mounted on a rod handle and containing a tightly wound scroll printed with a mantra.
Prayer wheels are used primarily by the Buddhists of Tibet and Nepal, where hand-held prayer wheels are carried by pilgrims and other devotees and turned during devotional activities.
According to Tibetan Buddhist belief, spinning a prayer wheel is just as effective as reciting the sacred texts aloud. This belief derives from the Buddhist belief in the power of sound and the formulas to which deities are subject. For many Buddhists, the prayer wheel also represents the Wheel of the Law (or Dharma) set in motion by the Buddha.

Minor editing in camera

One of my pet peeves is Photoshop. What's the point of calling yourself a photographer (Amateur or pro) if you spend more time with photoshop rather than learning how to create the right picture with your camera?
