On the Wind of a Prayer II by fraughtuk On the Wind of a Prayer II by fraughtuk
This is a second picture taken near Poon Hill in the Himalayas, Nepal. The flags contain prayers, and the winds are mean't to whisk them off to god...

Update : Just gave this image a tidy up in Photoshop... :)

I think it was a beautiful thought, letting the wind take the prayers (? How do I bend this word??) up to the sky...

You bent it nicely! ;-) I agree.... the nepalese have some beautiful traditions.

I wish we had some traditions like that in Norway. Not that I am religious, but we don't have any beautiful traditions... It's like... ehmm... drinking homemade beer and dance to the fiddlers music... well, where is the beautiful symbolisme there?

Tradition can be just as beautiful... you've described some stuff that sounds like fun... i bet it makes you feel good. :D
Reply
:iconshoops:
shoops Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2005
Yes, but it's not like something we can be proud of as the tradition you just described in your shot. It's like; Hey! Want to know what we have been doing in the past? Yeah, well, huh, we got drunk till we throwed up by our dancing..

I'll check out your gallery later.... No i didn't see Damon... where abouts is that?

My video camera broke due to the cold! :-( I was trying to make a documentary... but the temperature dropped to -5 one night and my camera didn't like it... Damn thing! LOL.

The vibrancy of the flag's colours make this pic awesome, as they stand out so well against the mountains and sky. :D :clap:

I used to sell Tibetan Prayer Flags. I'm glad you put the meaning behind them in your description!!
