  9. Gorgeous shots! I love the golden peace pagodas and the way the temple appears to be reaching up to the sky! These are really stunning photos and the temple's architecture is fabulous as well! Great selection for your SWF photos! Hope you're having a good day and that you have a good weekend!

  12. To both those friends I know and those new ones that have stopped by, thank you so much for your kind words. The day these photos were taken was around 4 p.m. or so on a gorgeous weekday and everything felt right with the universe for a spell. A good feeling to have amid all the chaos and negativity of our society and our politics.

    Namaste, my friends.

  13. Pagan - what an incredible building, so different from anything I've seen before. Where is it? If we get back up that way I'd like to see it in person. I can feel the peace through your photos. I particularly love the shot with the colored banners or cloths hanging on that long line around the lily pond. It creates a kind of sacred space.
