returning from Central Java
Rulers of the Sailendra Dynasty built Borobudur
some time between AD 750 and AD 850.
This vast monument is a harmonious composition
expressing both the shape of the cosmos
and man's spiritual quest.
I've taken thousands of photographs
of this colossal monument,
some of those are coming soon on this space.
The supremely gorgeous landscape of Central Java,
those beautiful green rice fields,
traditional rice growing kampung,
villages of terracotta-tilled houses,
magnificent temples and 'stupas',
all overlooked by soaring volcanic peaks,
still lingers in my mind.
