Diwali Powder Painting

Photo is courtesy of Ben Piven who published it on Flick. He wrote to me that he is in the last few months in India and this photo of Hindu Yantra painted in powder is from a Diwali he saw there. Diwali is an Indian and Nepalese lights festival where the lights signify victory of good over the evil within every human being.

You are in my soul

Photo is courtesy of Ben Piven who shot it while he visited Israel and published it on Flick under the title Londonite Judean. I can hear the guy in this photo saying: The Magen David is:
A. In my skin
B. On my flag
C. In my blood
D. In my soul
Reminds me of Rod Stewart’s:
You're in my heart, you're in my soul
You'll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you're my best friend
You're in my soul
