Prasat Bayon

The famous stone faces of Prasat Bayon within Angkor Thom in Siem Reap, Cambodia was built in the late 12th and early 13th century by a Buddhist King, then modified by Hindu and Buddhist Kings according to their interest.  These structures were found atop the many peaks of the temple complex... now lying in ruins (but being restored by the Japanese Government).  The region is protected by World Heritage.

On a personal side,  it's good to be back from my 2 year Google+ hiatus, albeit now operating from another continent.  More to come..

Feedback most welcomed!

Florence Duomo. Florence, Italy

The Florence Cathedral or Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower) is the most awe inspiring structure in Florence, Italy. It can be seen in a panoramic setting from Michaelangelo's Square (Piazzale Michelangiolo), about 8km away as the crow flies.
I found some graffiti carved into the stone balustrade and though this would make a fantastic #SacredSunday theme post cured by +Charles Lupica and +Sumit Sen. This image was taken yesterday.

Hagia Sophia

Perhaps one of the more fascinating places for a spiritual visit, this building has been in existence since 360AD surviving takeovers of empirical proportions. A Greek Orthodox Cathedral, later a Roman Catholic Cathedral, it later served to a Mosque before finally becoming a museum in recent modern history.
It was strange for me to notice arabic script (lower side of image) and an image of Jesus on the same wall, now part of the #SacredSunday theme curated by +Charles Lupica and +Sumit Sen.

Hainanese Steamed Chicken

Perhaps the most popular style of chicken served in Asia because of it's juicy and succulent flesh, here shown with a spring onion and soy sauce garnish plus some ginger chilli dipping sauce on the side. Most famous in the South East Asian region but now found in the #FoodFriday themed post curated by +Charles Lupica and +Karin Nelson.

Translucent Tulips

Perhaps my favourite, one of many on display at Keukenhof, Europe's largest annual flower show near Amsterdam each spring. I will post am image each week from that collection in the #FloralFriday theme curated by +Tamara Pruessner. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of this species. Do you?

Notre-Dame Cathedral

For the #SacredSunday theme curated by +Charles Lupica

Located in the south of Luxembourg city, the church is an example of gothic architecture with some renaissance elements. Apart from the magnificent statues and carvings, we always admired the intricate artwork within the walls and ceilings of the building... with this being no exception.
