Buddha 015

This was taken at a very large Buddha shrine in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. The giant Buddha (which is not shown, obviously) was casted out of metal as a memorial to the war dead of WWII, both Japanese and American. Inside the Buddha are memory rolls and you can place the names of those lost in the Pacific theatre there. The shrine complex was very beautiful and tranquil, and all of the flowers were in bloom while I was there. Taken 7/17/07, with settings f/4, 1/400 speed, ISO 0, focal length 17.2 mm.
