WordPress Photo Challenge: Beyond

lotus beyond

The lotus flower was thought to show a level of detachment beyond that of regular people. The Bhagavad Gita says that the lotus symbolizes one whose actions are untouched by sin and who performs his duties with no attachment. At the same time, the lotus had significance in Greek mythology; the lotus, when eaten, could induce a incomparable apathy. It would take one far beyond the reality of daily routine.

This week’s Photo Challenge is “Beyond”, and this lotus flower was shot at the Pura Taman Sari in Bali.


Abstract Lighting

 

I looked up as I walked out of the hall below the Petronas Towers.  I saw this, above.  A lighting version of a lotus flower, perhaps, but it was fun to shoot.

What do you think?  Would this look nice in your living room?
