The recent Weekly Photo Challenges are just too difficult to me and I opt to post on other topics.
One of my pastime is watching kois swimming in a pond.
That Winter day was cold and raining, giving a blue hue to the whole picture.
Ripples were set up in the water because of the rain.
Large schools of kois swam up and rushed together in the race for food.
This week’s challenge is Rule of Thirds.
This is definitely a photo which is off centered.
While the water is blueish with ripples from the rain drops falling hard on the winter lake, this contrasts greatly with the school of bright colored kois rushing towards a focal point.

Up to now, I still don’t know what I saw.
The series of picture will give you an idea of the setting.
I have never shown these pictures as I would like to research it before publishing.
But it is so tempting to publish them under the Travel Theme: Golden!
PS My blogging friend Denise shares the following which she has researched into the background of the golden statute:
It is called Nagarjuna, considered the most important Buddhism philosopher after Gautama Buddha. His image is mostly found in Tibetan Buddhism but scholars said “Along with his disciple Āryadeva, he is considered to be the founder of the Madhyamaka school of Mahāyāna Buddhism.” (Wikipedia)
