The Kamakura Daibutsu (Big Buddha) is both big and beautiful. Its size and apparent serenity captivating the huge numbers of visitors who flock to see it every year.
Yet in a naÃ¯ve attempt to get a slightly unconventional (and dare I say arty) shot, I took a picture of the statue from a slightly different angle. Now whether it was in response to my photographic incompetency or a reaction to the hordes of noisy sightseers I don’t know, but the big fella’s serene look appears to have changed to one of intense irritation — anger even.
Personally I’m putting it down to the crowds.
