14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Byodo-In Temple in Oahu, Hawaii

My parents and I travelled to Oahu, Hawaii during the summer of 2016. I love learning about different religions and visiting different temples and churches, so I took my mom with me to visit this Buddhist temple. We were exploring around the temple, and when we stopped to observe a statue of a Buddha, I captured this image.
