This was taken at an Opening ceremony of a Japanese restaurant EDO in Sri Lanka. Few more pictures below.
Ancient carving of lovers best suits for this day. Below is the history behind this master-peace. Happy Valentines day everyone!
6th Century Gupta style carving. The woman, seated on the man’s lap, lifts a warning finger, probably as a manifestation of her coyness; but the man carries on regardless. The figures represent Dutugemunu’s son Saliya and the low caste (Sadol Kula) maiden Asokamala whom he loved. It’s known that he gave up the throne for her.
Found this beauty parked at the beach side of Brighton. Wouldn’t you just want to drive into the sunset with a classic like this… keep dreaming. This would cost around $70,000 to $80,000 or even higher in Australia I would think.
It’s always a challenge to photograph the full moon on a cloudy day, but it can also bring out the best moody shots like this one. Only if I can put a wolf in front of that moon, might even qualify for a Twilight saga background :).
