The Colour Orange
On a regular basis we sit and enjoy our Finalists gallery for inspiration and today was no different. It occurred to us that there were a number of images, including the winner, that included the richness and warmth of the colour orange. Orange is an important symbolic colour for some religious faiths and often thought to represent enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation. Perfect for an Autumn/Fall blog topic we thought!

The Mon fled political unrest in Myanmar years ago and settled in Sangkhlaburi in west Thailand. Their food and traditions are distinctly different from those in their adopted country.

Image Title: Food for God
Description: In the image the Brahman cook is cooking religious food for devotees but the devotion in the cook shows – it seems he is preparing food for God. Rajapur Lokonath Dham in Chittagong, Bangladesh is a praying and worshipping centre for the followers and believers of 'Baba Lokonath'. This worshipping ceremony starts in the evening time and it continues for two hours. The devotees fast for 24hrs during this worship and they break their fast after the prayer. It is a ghee light burning festival in the name of 'Baba Lokonath’, the devotees pray with great spiritual concentration.
