Smile

Wat Ban Den near Chiang Mai, Thailand holds a massive reclining Buddha with a striking smile. My attention kept coming back to the red lips even in all the gold and decorative tile work.

To me it looks like a smile of contentment.

Thank you WordPress for the nudge today.

Rise/Set

As a Chef Instructor and a turkey hunter I am very used to the early rise.  In last week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge/ Favorite Place I posted a number of good rises taken from one location.  I’ll still post a few rises for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge Rise/set but I’ll try to focus on the sets.

I do love chasing daylight and I’ll pull the boys out of bed at stupid early O’clock and look that rath right in the face to catch a good rise.

It never occurred to me that I would take a photo of the solar eclipse projected on the shadow of my brimmed hat.  The midday sunset blew my mind.
