“PEACE COMES FROM W ITHIN. DO NOT SEEK IT WITHOUT”
This is the Big Buddha on the Island of Koh Samui in Southern Thailand. The quality of this photo may not be very good because I took it in 1990 with an inexpensive and simple camera. But I just love the image! I was in Koh Samui and Koh Panghan before it became as commercialised as it is now, so it was quite rustic and travelling around on bumpy paths sometimes with three on a small motor scooter was often quite scarey. But adventurous!! This statue of the Big Buddha is so impressive on Koh Samui, I just loved seeing the monks walking in and out of it too. It was a meaningful and special time for me during those days in Thailand.
