What emptiness brings

Boats | West Africa I am transported to the magic of emptiness when I look at this image. I waited for three hours to have that come about. Most days, the fishermen set out to sea during the black pre-dawn of morning, and upon their return, their blue boats are full of fish. The shipyard [...]

No mud, No lotus.

Lotus blossoms rise from mud and water to bloom and display their elegant, full beauty in a variety of colors.

The ordinary and beautiful things that shelter us

Red Parasols | Myanmar Making this image of novice monks in Myanmar who spend long days studying scripture, meditating, and dutifully performing daily tasks, their casual postures reminded me they are just kids. Hanging out together during a break time, joined in sweet friendship, spontaneously and symmetrically positioned in harmony with the grand setting and [...]
