The Holy of Holies— The Holy Tooth Relic Temple, Kandy, Sri Lanka

I shot this photo just after I had queued to catch a glimpse of the golden casket that allegedly holds one of the Buddha’s teeth. The monk is entering a chamber one floor below where the the tooth is located. As such, he must be a pretty important monk to get solitary access to such a special place. (Make sure you click on the image to get the full deal.) The Holy Tooth Relic Temple is the most important religious […]

Bali Breakwater — Comox Valley Photographer

I took this shot just as the sun was starting to set. As the ocean waves rolled in, large waves would explode upward when they hit the breakwater. These water jets were almost 20 feet high and they would rocket upwards with the sound of a deep whoomf followed by the spray falling onto the breakwater like heavy rain. The moment was extremely dynamic. I hope you catch a sense of the action. Bye for now. Gordon Ross

Possible Worksite Violation

Check out these two images taken in Yangon (Rangoon), Burma. Barefoot, wouldn’t you know standing on old, weathered wood. I couldn’t stand to watch them any longer, so I don’t know if they made it down safely. Hopefully they replaced the bulbs with long lasting ones. You can check out more images from Burma here.

Balinese Dancer

One of the remarkable faces of Bali. This young woman was dancing at a temple in Bali just before the sun went down. The dance, like her makeup,  is complex and sublime. I hope you like the image. More dancers to come in the following weeks. Stay tuned. Bye for now. Gordon
