Sometimes one creates a dynamic impression by saying something,
and sometimes one creates as significant an impression by remaining silent.

I love this, both photo and quote. Lokks like a meditation everlasting. Wonderful composition, it really gives the capture a meditative feeling.

I guess we're in quite close spirits of mind, my dear. This talks to me a lot, and your choice of focus & dof is beautifully meaningful : depth is so subtle, depth is palpable and so does the vegetal/Nature behind & in front the meditating statue. Thanks for the peace shared here, and the invitation to listen deeper into our own silence* Have a deliciously restful w-e.

A gorgeous image.
I'm not sure the quote is speaking a lot to me, but the image certainly is.

As silently powerful as only thoughts can be . . each of us will take away a different version of the same message.

You've said quite a lot with this image. Or, have you remained silent? Either way, it has a big impact.

An image of great depth and power (much more powerful than Dalai's words) and I'm immediately drawn into the meditation! Hey Sharon, how I admire your beautiful eye and mind!
