Magic Places

10 Sep

minimalistic approach

reflection of true colours

more harmony

more peace

more silence

historical monument

the temple lends grace

to outstanding natural beauty

hidden in Chinese mountains

senses deeply impressed

speechless beats the heart

imagine the power of making a wish

and its fulfillment

living life and death

while burning sweet incense

touching the soul

overwhelmed by Reds and Golds and Yellows

inscriptions, patterns, decoration

the huge Buddha is watching

illuminated by hundrets of  candles

Buddhist monks kneeling for their daily prayer

doing what they live to do

red lanterns dancing in the wind…

What more can I say?
