Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: View From the Side

What is this little boy doing, sitting all alone on a bench? Waiting for someone to sit and have a chat. He’s very cute.

I love this sideways look of Che’s hands whilst he was taking a photo.

This scary looking statue stands guard, protecting the temple and all that’s inside.

Which Way Challenge: October 25, 2018

This challenge is about “capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on” and it’s hosted by sonofabeach96. So here is my offering of which ways for this week.

Which way do I go? So many ways…tropical pathway leading to lush gardens, the pool, and eventually the beach

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Tongues and Tails

This week it’s about tongues and tails. Well, my offering this week doesn’t include cute cats or dogs. It’s a statue of Buddha in meditation pose sitting on a serpent. When Buddha began meditating, the wise serpent Mucalinda came out of the forest to protect Buddha from the elements after he attained enlightenment – the Buddhist Naga has the form of a great cobra and is depicted sometimes with many heads and other times with one head, commonly found in Burma, Laos, and Thailand.

Can you see the serpent’s tail curling around its body on which Buddha is sitting?
