:icon1stbutterflykiss::iconthxfav2::iconthxfav3::iconthxfav4: Monk Taking Photograph of Beauty.  The point of contemplative photography is to help people see, help people to have direct experience rather than just thinking experience or inferential experience about the world. The core of it is how you make that shift from thinking about things to seeing. If you can’t see clearly it’s going to be very hard to make good images. We look at people and we see friends and enemies. And again that’s our thoughts about the people or our conception about the people, but they’re really not friends or enemies. That’s just something that we overlay on the situation, so it’s not seeing them clearly.

Thank you by KmyGraphic for the fave on Shrine and Lantern. This reminds us to listen to the sound of your own heartbeat, the colors of the world around you, the smell of the scents wafting in the air, and the peace these things bring to you at the cost of merely stopping for a moment to pay attention.

Thanks For Faving Two by AudraMBlackburnsArt   Birds Enjoying Japanese Garden.  Until the 20th century, Japanese gardens were seldom open to the public. They were built by the ruling elite to create a mood appropriate to worship and contemplation.  Most of today's famous gardens owe much of their development to the influence of Zen Buddhism. Japan is a group of islands surrounded by oceans and seas. From ancient times, the Japanese people had an affinity for the sea. Water as a design element in the garden is crucial. One of the most popular styles of garden is called chisen, in which a pond or lake occupies the most significant portion of the garden. A Japanese garden helps place the visitor in his or her center.

:icon1stbutterflykiss::iconthxfav2::iconthxfav3::iconthxfav4: Path through Bamboo Garden. In Japan, you can encounter bamboo everywhere - In the mountains, near rivers, in strolling gardens, tea gardens and private residences. Timber bamboo is used to build houses, roofs, scaffolding, windows, blinds and fences. Whether it be chopsticks, brooms, flutes, brushes, fans or the most fragile tea scoop - bamboo products are part of the everyday Japanese life.  When the wind blows, you should stop and take in the beautiful sight of the bamboo swaying in the wind.

:iconthankyouspray3::iconthankyouspray4:  Galapagos Yellow Iguana Having Lunch. Charles Darwin described the Galapagos land iguana as "ugly animals, of a yellowish orange beneath, and of a brownish-red colour above: from their low facial angle they have a singularly stupid appearance." The Galapagos land iguana grows to a length of three to five feet with a body weight of up to twenty-five pounds, depending upon which island they are from.
