Photo from the Road: Buddha in the Banyan Tree

BuddhaInBanyan

This giant stone head from an ancient Buddha statue has been framed where it fell by the roots of a giant banyan tree.

Taken in Ayutthaya, Thailand, this Buddha image is one of the many reasons my husband and I love to tour archeological sites for photo opportunities.  There’s always something unexpected and poignant.

We found this root-encased Buddha image at the end of the day, just before sunset. He provided a  thoughtful end to that particular excursion, and something to contemplate and discuss over dinner that evening.
