It was an image that stayed in his mind and he was desperate to capture the same moment. Now was his chance - we were at the exact temple where the postcard image was taken. We walked slowly around the temple ruins and eventually caught site of a recline Buddha behind a stone wall, with three wooden windows. Chris took plenty of pictures ...
