Nice statue, and nice background. It looks perfect the way it's in soft focus.

I think I saw this first around BlogBlast time last year. Nice to see it again.

I was startled to see this, because I once posted a shot of this very sculpture on my own blog. It's two blocks from my office. Nice when I pass there to see Gandhi standing in that courtyard under the trees.

Also, I have a memento of the moment. I was walking and looking through my camera and fell over a stone bench. I still have the scar on my lef.

Peace on so many levels. Amazing composition: I get the sense that he's looking out at something meaningful, taking it all in.
