Sitting Meditation

This woman sat for some time meditating near the Bodhi Tree. I don’t recall seeing her arrive nor remember her leaving. I was too distracted taking pictures, trying to capture the essence of the day. This photo was originally in color. I changed it to monochrome. Then I added some character with scratches to give it a vintage feel. Finally, I added the light streaks sourced from the left. They remind me that she was facing the Bodhi Tree, an icon of her belief system. In the final image, it seems her robe is absorbing the light emanating from the tree and glowing itself. Is the glow from the robe or is it her aura that is glowing as it appropriates energy from the Bodhi Tree? That interpretation is in the eye of the beholder.
