"There's one world, like it or not."
- dedicated to the genius of John Martyn (1948-2009)
Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery (Man Fat Tsz) is a Buddhist temple in Sha Tin, Hong Kong. It is not an actual monastery as there are no resident monks and is managed by laypersons. It was built by Yuet Kai, a devout Buddhist layman who dedicated the last years of his life to constructing an elaborate temple containing nearly 13,000 statues of Buddha.
This is one of the many. A kind smile.

Magnifique photo de ce Buddhas au sourire énigmatique à la Mona Lise.
Merci pour ce partage d'une oeuvre universelle.

this jumps out of the thumbnails at you. The detail and way you have presented this image is compelling and strangely a bit scary too. Amazing texturing and light management make this unusual composition work perfectly.
Enjoy your weekend - best wishes Brian.

Wow, what a lively photo, thanks to your close-up position and very close and narrow vertical crop. You also captured the gentle light and shadows superbly, plus the textures. Superbly done and well framed, good note. John Martyn, eh! Have we ever shared a critique conversation about Richard Thompson?

Excellent quality of this portrait even if it's only of a sculpture
Nice delicate colors and light, much tenderness in these eyes and the smile
Enjoy your Sunday

love the 'in your face' aspect of this portrait. And Solid Air is definitely on my top 10 albums...
