first monastic #perfectmorning in bodhgaya started today very early, at 4-30am i was up to see the local highlight and the sacred site bodhi tree where buddah is believed to attain enlightenment and the temple, originally built by emperor ashoka in third century bc. good thing about #bodhgaya is that due to big amount of international and national guests, you can get on the street here at any time - it is quite safe here. the only thing that may hold you back is cold - around 5am temperature barely reached 15C. and if you consider that in the temple complex area you will be expected to be barefoot, it is really may become too chilly. but this fact doesnt scare hundreds of pilgrims,monastics and various visitors from all over the world 😃🙏 already at 5am temple is full of people, some came for morning prayers, meditation, prostrations and alms. today waiting time to get inside of the temple you see on the pic was smth around 40min. i had to sacrifice the visit of the temple till next time for the sake of intense morning meditation and joined the circles formed around the temple and the sacred tree by monks and nuns with their alm bowls in front. actually there are two circles formed: smaller one around the temple and the tree and bigger one around the entire garden. shortly after sunrise (today smth around 6-30am) monastics made an additional queue for breakfast. food is offered to everyone but seems like out of solidarity with monastics nobody of lay people joins the queue. in general, management of the huge temple area seems to work very well. in spite of huge amount of people, the atmosphere remains very relaxed and peaceful. not the last role play the fact that phones are not allowed inside which reduce amount of pictures and hustle in front of the most important historical sites. thats why i also cant show you what were going inside today morning on the pics but on the way back to my temple, shot the view on main entrance for you 😊🙏 have a nice and peaceful day ahead and i hope to entertain you today more with my local historical discoveries here ❤
"I wish I could escape my mind, that I could be free of this world and everything I have seen in the last few years"
Life is beautiful, and the world contains vast wonders, isn't it?
Then, what makes a person wish they could be free of this world?
What horrors, indeed, that there is not even the ashes of hope to kindle a new life?
Welcome to Aleppo, Syria where Nuri is a beekeeper, living a simple rural life with his artist wife Afra, and their young son.
War comes to the city, and life as their knew it ended forever.
Next comes the peril and hardship of migration as all refugees must face. .
This structure has been shot a ton, so I was looking for a comp I hadn’t seen before. Thankfully we had some great light right before sunset which reflected off a nearby building. I went with a 12mm lens to get as much of the Vessel in as possible and get a dynamic look to the shot. There was a girl below posing while her friends took some photos of her. I thought about waiting until they were done, but in the end I really liked her in the foreground looking up.
