After a bad start in religion yesterday here a new one. Although Buddhism sometimes is seen as a religion other will tell you itís just a way.
But in many countries you will find lots of symbols that worship Buddha as a god.
A sort photo series shows that.
The Buddha would not say if gods exist or not. He taught that people should not look to gods to save them or bring them enlightenment. The gods may have power over world events and they might help people, or they might not. But it's up to each person to get to enlightenment.

hi Ruud,
great photo..very nice view..good shot..well done


Super photo and your note is very good and absolutely true you have to help yourself not wait for someone else to do it,
Thanks Ruud,

Hi Ruud.
The big figures are looking forward; the left one has no real view because of the trees. I cannot see if there is some corner in the foreground. In the workshop I just cropped that out and made some space.
I hope you like it; for me it was a good exercize in PS.
The picture inspired me, I just wanted to clean up the important future path for the left guy.
(clone tool on sky is very difficult; I still see spots in my ws)

Hi Ruud

An unusual shot from Wat Yai. I like the partial desaturation & pov. Perhaps some more yellow in the lower 1/2 of the image? A superb note. Good work!

Beautiful shot. Its nice to see an old stand by camera like the pentax me super still serves its users well!
