indeed they must look very exotic in this part of the world. i like that you included the two figures at the end.
Louis: Thank you, Ayush. It is funny how one normally try to avoid tourists, but this time I had to hurry to catch them at that point and before disappearing around the bend.

I like your B&W conversion, Louis.
Louis: Thank you, dear sir.
Quelle belle collection, le noir et blanc lui va très bien.
Louis: Merci beaucoup, Martine.
It would be fun to walk up and down the row to pick out a favorite Buddha, Louis. Did you?
Louis: No, I did not, Ginnie. I played shadow games with them - I think some other visitors were surprised with the antics of the old man. Anyhow, there are way too many Buddhas in this garden to can arrive at a favourite.

I like this Louis. What are the Buddhas doing, seeing who can be the most serene?
Louis: Thank you Chris. I know for a fact that they were standing very still.

Good to see Buddhas standing for a change Louis.
Louis: I think all seats were taken, gutteridge.

The first Buddha looks very peaceful. Did they all have different facial characteristics?
Louis: I thought they were quite different, in looks and demeanour; but all had that serene smile on their faces.

This is a wonderful picture. I so love the B&W here. That are a lot of Buddhas, he brought the whole family there....
I did a google on the internet and you have been 'all over the place' in Portugal, good for you!!
Louis: Thank you Astrid - I have been all the way up to the north and then down the eastern side to end up at Lisbon again.
What a most unusual thing to find in a Christian country, they certainly make for a good image, and the people couldn't be in a better place.
Louis: Apparently, Joe thought to save some Buddha statues from destruction after what happened in Afghanistan in 2001. But yes, it was rather unusual. Thank you Brian.
This must be quite a place Louis
Louis: Good for a half day visit or an SC get-together smile They sell wines as well.
In what country is this? Portugal? I love the crispness in the BW
Louis: Yip, still Portugal - thanks Mary.
a perfect b&w image Louis... your depth of field in crisp... hard to accomplish on that length....petersmile
Louis: Thank you peter, some great compliments smile
I have never seen several Buddhas in one place...smile
Nice black and white conversion, Louis - and the humans give scale.
A great angle to have taken this... there are so many! Great choice for B&W I think.
