Poor man on the stone steps to the cave temple of Dambulla
Dambulla, Sri Lanka
I do not know what I am seeing except that it is beautiful and perhaps also sad. A weathered handsome face
and bended frame. And you say, poor. Is that a tumor in his cheek or just a shape? Is he looking up at you or is he blind? Is that a kindness in his face, a hint of smile, or just what I wish to see? And yet there seems a calmness in his face and something uplifting in his furrowing brow that smooths into a field of white — hair and orb of light — and bended tree.
Perhaps it is someone’s father’s face or a face that might remind someone of his father….
AMAZING photo, Adam ! All my best–jan
