Photo Friday - the Big Buddha of Bago

This week's Photo Friday is brought to you by the letter B -- it's the big Buddha of Bago, Burma.

What's more tranquil than the Buddha himself?


This little town, commonly visited as a day-trip from Yangon, was recently in the news because it's the hometown of Aung San Suu Kyi and was among the first place she visited after her release from house-arrest. I also submitted this image to the current round of Travel Photo Roulette with the theme "tranquility".

Perhaps you have sharp eyes and noticed the two birds on his shoulder. If not, here are a couple more images that give better perspective to his size.



The small one is me.
