I think a bit of a tighter crop at the sides would have enhanced this photo, although the "gold" does titillate. You have fantasticated this image well with exposure and saturation.

"glistens"

author says:

Yes you are right - a tighter crop would have been better especially to accentuate the idiom.

The idiom comes from 'The Merchant of Venice' and it is 'glisters'. It was changed to 'glitters' very recently.

Thai Wai - created by still26


Thai Wai

The Thai greeting referred to as the wai consists of a slight bow, with the palms pressed together in a prayer-like fashion. The higher the hands are held in relation to the face and the lower the bow, the more respect or reverence the giver of the wai is showing. The elderly are always shown reverence by the young and even toddlers have their hands pressed in a wai by doting parents teaching them this greeting at a very young age. (2 years and 138 days ago)

This is very nice, but how is it an "Arts and Crafts?"

author says:

Easy, the Thai women fold these lotus flowers so that the locals buy them then offer them to monks or place them into temples or local shrines. Made by hand, they are a decorative handicraft.

This statue of the Goddess Quan Am (of Vietnam) was a few stories tall. She stood in the temple, dimly illuminated and oozed peace. Beautifully carved she caught my attention and caused me to catch my breath with her calm serenity. (2 years and 364 days ago)
