    This is an amazing shot Peter. Buddha shots anywhere are truly magic. But similar to this shot, I don’t know why, I never post actual front shots of Buddha. I just try to keep the mystery of actually experiencing the warmth and positive energy of these places and I want to people to experience it themselves.

    Love your pictures..:)
