"To see into the darkness illuminate from within." by 

Sony DSC F717 Digital photo, Photoshop enhanced.

This is a statue representing the Buddha. The statue was acquired in Thailand by my friends Michael and Morgan. They graciously allowed me to photograph and edit as I saw fit. Thanks guys.

Looking at the finished photo inspired this thought: ‘To see into the darkness illuminate from within.’ Believing strongly that our essence is somehow connected to all things, we need only to be still in order to perceive. Perhaps this thought is not original. And if not, I am happy to have shared in it at all.

    Hmm it’s hard to say unless I looked at it up close :) Looks like the buddha to me, though it could be Kwan Yin, the female Buddha. Vishnun is more a manifestation of Brahman in the Advaita or Smarta traditions of Hinduism

    Thank you Danielle. I did some research this morning and found that this is a statue of Buddha.

    Definitely a statue of the Buddha, and depending on the position of his hands – we can tell what he is doing, teacing, healing, meditation etc… I think this is a teaching buddha! i stand to be corrected. Its a lovely photograph however!!!

    The shadows in the background look like Buddhas meditative levels.

    Thank you Jay for your comments on both of my pieces. I really like your “Sitting” picture. Do you only produce tee-shirts? Do you ever work with other mediums; acrylics, oil, pastels?
