As most of you may know or have known.. I went to a July 4th celebration this past weekend up north from my hometown. It was fun but very hot and sweaty. I was asked to take some pictures. Not the best in the world but Hey I guess its a start.
P.S. Questions will not be answered about the photos due to me not having a clue what I took a picture of. Just a bunch of statues :D

@miro you are right. Shiva belongs to India but on the other had.. Gautama Buddha belongs to Laos, Thailand, Veitnam, Cambodia, etc.
They look alike in appearance but they are clearly different gods.
Gautama Buddha is like a normal human. He doesn't have numerous arms like Shiva does. He also considered it bad luck to touch a female.
I hope these pictures helped you guys see the difference in the two.

Should be an automatism of the forum script, maybe because the picture is too big, so it would ruin the layout of the page.
If you link to external images though, it's sudden death for the aesthetics of the forum, if these pics are huge. ;)
But even this theory doesn't make sense...it could easily be displayed with different size. *scratching head*
