🥇 Have You Seen Her? Vietnam’s Tallest Buddha Statue by @trangbaby

This is the tallest Buddha statue in Viet Nam both scale and art of architecture. Locating (inside Linh Ung Temple) on the top of a hill overlooking the Bay of Da Nang and the East Sea, Lady Buddha is 67 meters in height and extraordinarily majestic. A very spectacular setting for worship as well as for picture taking. The Lady Buddha statue is massive and pretty impressive. There are 17 floors in the statue lap and each has an altar with 21 Buddha statues with different postures, shapes, and facial expressions.

🥈 O-C-T-O-B-E-R by @dfinney

Somehow, I have managed to visit two pumpkin patches this month! The first visit in early October was to Schuh Farms, located in Mt. Vernon, WA. The second visit (just yesterday), was to Biringer’s Black Crow Pumpkins and Corn Maze, located in Arlington, WA. I love Autumn and what I like to call “Agro-tourism Season”. The season really starts in late summer, but it is ALL about getting out of the city, sunny drives, farm stands, fresh produce and an assortment of barnyard animals. Fall just makes it a bit more special as the leaves turn warm hues and look so spectacular against the bright blue sky.

🥉 Steal like an artist: the story of Delft Blue by @helgalubevi

Delft Blauw, or in English, “Delft Blue”, “Delftware” or “Delft Pottery” are all names for one the most famous souvenirs of the Netherlands. Yes, I’m talking about the white and blue dutch pottery. And you probably know what I’m talking about, since there’s a big chance that you have some relatives, like your granny's or aunties who traveled to the Netherlands probably have some blue and white windmill porcelain in their cupboard.
