Man's Search for Wisdom


Both my husband and I took pictures for this challenge, and later decided that we liked this one of his best, so this one's from both of us. =)
Socrates once said that "True wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing." So, in our picture, the "Thinker" symbolizes man's unending quest for wisdom (or knowledge), and what better place to look for wisdom than from the word of God (The Book of Mormon)?
Taken with a Nikon D-40, on automatic setting, with overhead lighting. CC welcome.
(P.S. It IS only 10:15pm in our time zone, so hope this counts!)

I like that you chose that edition of the Book of Mormon. It fits with your mood so well!

I like the Thinking Man. That was something I also thought of, but had no way to execute.

I liked the lighting on this the way it fell against the thinking statue. One of my favorites.
