The Monkey Buddha Bazaar:
They are both pictures I took at Longwood Gardens, which is full of amazing sights.
The first is a radiant white lotus flower against the dark water of a pond.
The lotus is a symbol of spiritual growth & enlightenment, emerging from the murky depths of our mundane physical existence.
|From Longwood Gardens, PA|
I really like the veins & the flowing texture inside the bright green areas.
