Everybody needs...

... beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

I could think of so many things from this pictures

Among all of difficult times, there is God always

In the vast Ocean, We are nothing but hole(s) only God stands out.

Beautiful blue!! Are they painting or Sky comes out clean cloudless blue only for you?

Mohan said...

Very nice capture of wall and paint on it. Resembles the ocean taken distant in sky, but it is a human made wall!

Beautiful take!

Love the textures, beautiful shot.

Paresh Palicha said...

I get that feeling in D-in-M. Thanks :-)

Magnificent shot Ash. Is it a painting or a satellite picture of the earth on which you have superimposed the cross. Or is this totally some thing else. I am curious.

Very nice composition with so many different meanings.

Felisol said...

How very strange that these words and this picture should reach me, just as I sat wondering how to set up my own sanctuary, and space outdooors.
Thanks a lot.

That is an amazing piece. Just gorgeous. Love it all--spirit, color, words, texture.

This wall almost looks like the sky, giving us hope, just like the cross does.

Rahul said...

well composed, those patches adds so much to the image.

Beautiful quote. It's amazing that you find so many places to photograph that touch the soul.

A Liberated Soul said...

Somehow 'it' isn't there. Not for a while now. Where has 'it' gone? Where is 'it' what I am looking for? Well, why do I even look for 'it'?

Freddy said...

Awesome capture...
