Stillness in Black & White – Ruwanwelisaya Temple, Sri Lanka
I know this shot is overexposed – but on reflection when I look at it, I still quite like it given the subject and the environment it was taken in. The man here is meditating at Ruwanwelisaya Temple in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. I took this picture because I was quite drawn by the stillness and the sense of quite concentration the man had in his meditation. Despite others walking around him, he was still very much in his own thoughts and world. I think the photo with it’s incredible sense of light captures the sense of emptiness which is mind is trying to achieve through his meditation. This also offset by the darker colour of his skin, which really make him stand out nicely within the sea of black and draw you into him.
