A-Z Challenge: The Letter B: Big Buddha

In my visit to see the Big Buddha (Tian Tan Buddha) at Lantau Island near Hong Kong, he was shrouded in fog, which made this San Franciscan feel right at home, and made the whole scene a lot more spiritual.

    I would say he is a mystery Buddha.

    That would look incredibly spiritual – if it wasn’t for the army of Asian visitors about to stampede over the one white photographer! Hahaha!

    But sadly, that place is never empty enough for a shot like that, huh? Maybe it’s time for you to learn some bad-ass air-brushing / digital painting skills!

    • — hehehe … I think there was one other white guy up there at the time.
      — yep, it was a little hectic, and getting clear shots was really tough. but i’m never one to say say never, and i got some other really amazing shots. some people were complaining about the fog, but it made for some awesome photography.
      — actually, my digital skills are quite good, but sadly, it’s an issue of time. got too many other things going on with my business these days, and things like that slip through the cracks, unfortunately. you know how time consuming that can be.

    lovely photo in the mist, the spiritual moments in life are sometimes like that, and others times brilliantly clear and bright 🙂

  4. Big BUDDHA shrouded in fog – that’s an inspiration:
    now I can imagine, he would rise and move and follow you …

    Love the air of mystery! We went there very early and it was much less crowded.
