Sunday Stills: modern art

Does modern art rock your boat or are you something of a traditionalist at heart? what does “modern art” mean to you?

if you look very carefully you’ll see that this stained glass window is made up from x-rays of the human body

On our recent trip to Zeeland, Holland, we visited some galleries featuring in the Hamstede Kunst art exhibition. These are some of the pieces which caught my attention.

this lake of pink water lilies in north eastern Thailand is not only a tourist attraction (people come from miles around to see them) but the plants provide floral offerings for the temple as well as the roots and stems for eating.

Sunday Stills: action

I almost deleted this photo. The Action challenge arrived in my mailbox just in time for me to retrieve and share it. It was taken at the Shwe Inn Thein pagoda near Lake Inle, Myanmar. The children are carrying typical baskets attached to a headband. This way leaves both arms free. I don’t know what they were carrying and they rushed past me too quickly to get a second shot.
