A Serene Portrait of Buddha

The serene Buddha in our garden

This is the buddha in our garden. I found him in Bali and persuaded him to come and sit in our garden in Kingston upon Thames in London. He has been meditating under the Acer tree for many years now. He is a constant reminder for me to make time to be mindful, in search of metta, my own bodhicitta, and ultimately nirvana.

It took an Indonesian craftsman around eleven months to carve him from a river pebble. The man who looked after him before me lives in Bali. He kindly boxed him up and shipped him to the UK.

I shot this on a still sunny day. He was the perfect sitter. You won't be surprised to know that there was no movement during the exposure. I shot it on my Sony A7R Mk3 with a FE70-200 f2.8 GM Lens

I hope you enjoy viewing the image - Colin

As an affiliate of many brands and services, including Amazon, I often get early notifications of special offers and I post these on the ads & offers panel.
I put the offers here as it means that more people will see them, as I write articles and reviews regularly and this panel appears on every article.
This ad panel is dynamic and will display current ads & offers from around the world. You should see ads from your territory. I hope some of you find the links useful and save some money.
