Painting with light

This is a contest run together with Silver Lining. The idea is to understand my own work through the viewers' eyes and minds. Your comments are the next layer of reading of the photographs. Here is the images for all viewers to made comments and from their comments we will pick the winner. Please enter your comment below.
Below are my thoughts,
It is very up lifting looking at the Bodhi tree with the sunlight penetrating from behind its leaves. The luminosity and the swaying of the leaves captivates one’s attention. Perhaps it was with the same reason that  Siddhartha Gautama sat beneath it and achieved enlightenment.

In Sanskrit, Bodhi means “to awake, become aware, notice, know or understand”, commonly translated as “enlightenment”. In Greek it means “Nous”, a faculty of the mind which helps to understand the world.

Perhaps, the intuitive awareness of things around us is as important as our understanding of the world through rationalization. Observation is an immediacy between us and nature. Be mindful.

The reward: Dreamy Red


  1. As everyone move around in a hectic manner, especially in Urban setting. We forgotten the simple joy of life, such as the warm of the Sun's ray. and the Sunlight's gift of visual colours to us.
    Sun light allow plants to grow & provide oxygen for us.

    The "simple joy of life" are the actually "Life Giver"

  2. like synapses of the human brain(internal source), transmitting life that springs into leaves, which in itself requires the energy of the sun(external source). or in simpler terms;mind, body and nature
