U3A Camera Club Outing - Part 2

Following from the last blog post, the U3A Camera Club then went next door to Underwood Park and visited the Chung Tian Buddhist Temple. A fabulous venue to let a bunch of amateur photographers lose.  After snapping the numerous statues in the grounds, Helen, a member of the Temple showed us trough the various inside rooms and eplained the philosophy of buddism to us. Buddhism is not a religion, it is a way of life and members live by the code Buddah (the teacher) teaches.
The statues in the entrance were fascinating our members

  1. Yes, I agree with your beloved. Good record of the visit. They obviously dont have a problem with photography like, say St Mary's in Sydney who are most officious! That woman kneeling down shooting the head of the buddha reminded me of myself!!

  2. For Julie: On the temple door is a sign saying photography not allowed. But Helen gave us permission because she was with us. Seemed strange but there you are.

  3. Loved the visit! I couldn't help but notice the HUGE earlobs on the Buddha!


  4. I love the shots of people taking shots! Good one!
