    Interesting images, Pensive, specially that impressive tree against the stormy background.

    Great photos, guys. I would like to follow you on Flickr.

    Here are some recent pictures.

    My nieces wanted to see Lahore Museum. Fasting Buddha attracted my people.



    Shalimar Garden




    Trimo Head Bridge (Atharan Hazari)



    Spotted this kite in the trees.

    I love formal gardens!
    The best outing is to spend a day visiting museums and art galleries, than have a picnic lunch in a formal garden.
    There's some beautiful formal gardens and nature walks in Charleston, South Carolina. Love taking friends and family who visit from California to Magnolia Plantation & Gardens... a nature walk that includes alligators! http://www.magnoliaplantation.com/gardens.html

    The fasting Buddha statue was unusual. I remember seeing overweight Buddhas but not something like rhis. I think those were Buddha statues. They may have been someone else.

    This is very nice, North Star, all the textures of the water and the broken remnants of what looks like a pier...

    Yes, it is always fun to spend time in the gardens.
    Shalimar Garden was built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan and this makes it very special for the tourists.

    Thanks for stopping by and noticing, Danik. I like taking photos of raptors.

    It is the most famous statue form Gandhara and it's centuries old. You can find more on Gandhara art from this link.

    That fasting Buddha statue moved me deeply, as someone for whom the Buddha's insights have been revelatory and transformative. It was featured in the recent and excellent film about the Buddha's life that was narrated by Richard Gere. For anyone who hasn't seen it, I highly recommend it, it's up on iTunes. Anyway, it depicts the last moment (almost literally) in the Buddha's long series of struggles to gain enlightenment that involved many harsh, self-imposed trials and restrictions. He was very close to death, when he had his profound moment of insight, having not allowed himself food for a long time. Lovely photos, Snowqueen.

    The fasting Buddha statue is unusually dramatic. I can believe it was taken close to death. The photo of the Kite was also beautiful, clear and sharp.

    I don't know much about the history of India before the British Raj, it's one of those historical blindspots I've been meaning to correct.

    Tyrion Cheddar, Dreamwoven, glad you liked the photos. Thank you for stopping by.
    There was some detail about this Fasting Buddha in the museum. I think you guys would find it interesting.

    I donít know much about sub-continent history myself, but visiting historical places like these was quite enlightening experience for me.
    Thanks for looking.
