One Wild Journey, One Crazy Couple, One Life to Live
I have just been introduced to these weekly themes for bloggers. This theme, Shadows, was announced by Where’s My Backpack.
This photo was taken at Takht-i Rustam (meaning the throne of Rustam) in Samangan, Afghanistan. The Buddhist stupa-monastery was named after Rustam, a king in Persian mythology, It is dated to the 4th and 5th centuries of the Kushano-Sassanian period and boasts five chambers, two of which are sanctuaries and one that is a domed ceiling with incredible lotus leaf carvings. I happened to catch some great shadows and sunlight the day we passed through.
