In China she is the personification of compassion itself, the “compassionate One” (1) and “the most powerful being in the entire Chinese Pantheon.” (7)
As the Chinese Buddhist bodhisattva “Kuan-Yin embodies the Divine Feminine” (1) and is known as the “Great Mother of China”. (8) She is the goddess of fertility, of healing and of magic. She is a mother figure, a friend, a guide and a protector for women. She is what ever you need her to be. For it is her sacred task to “hear the cries of the world” and to answer them with love, mercy and compassion.
What I thought I would do today is list the suggestions made by our Sepia Scenes participants and let you vote for one of them as our special 100th post on September 15 (I said September 8th but our 100th post will be on September 15th!)
Our great participant Sepia Scenes bloggers suggested the following:
1. a 100-themed post. Photo of a 100 things (pennies, bottle caps, etc.) or something that equals 100 such as a dollar which equals a hundred pennies. (posted by Aoife.Troxel)
2. a Love-theme in sepia. (suggested by by Jeff campbell)
3. a photo we too 100 weeks ago converted into sepia. (suggested by EG WOW)
4. a macro self-portrait: our eyes, lips, hands, etc. in sepia (suggested by Lui)
5. variations on a theme (that I would give you) (suggested by Kramer)
Next week I will give you the idea/theme and then you'll post you photo in sepia the week after that...
Please vote in the comments.
Here's my sepia shot for today...
Josh made balloon animals at the Carnival. This one, two love birds in a heart, he made for me. I colored the balloon by opening the color photo, adding a duplicate layer and then using the erasure tool to bring up the red again.
