SUENOSDEUOMI'S RUMINATIONS AND PERSPECTIVE
I like your lavender flowers – I don’t know what type they are, but they are pretty. At first I only saw a glass vase then by looking more carefully I saw the face of the Happy Buddha. Now I wonder, was he placed behind the vase or is it a photo app trick? Whatever, it is nice.
Vagabonde, thanks for commenting. I placed the vase with Crabapple blossoms on the table in my yard yesterday, tried many attempts at capturing the image with my better camera, a Nikon, in sunlight, but got the above in dimmer light, a bit before the sun was setting, go figure. Very little post-processing, certainly no gimmicks. You can see more images like in in my Buddha flickr set: https://www.flickr.com/photos/phenomenalgirlfriends/sets/72157620022884296/
I went to look at your pictures and I understand now about the photograph – you have a small Buddha sculpture. But the way it showed in the vase, it was hard to understand. Actually I have this Buddha in jade but I prefer the golden Buddha I bought in Thailand. I had bought a book showing all the different meanings of the hand and chose one – the teaching Buddha.
