Clarity

“Be obscure clearly.”
— Elwyn Brooks “E.B.” White

Just a few miles from my home is Wat Florida Dhammaram — a Buddhist monastic compound replete with statues and altars and flowers and clouds of sinus-triggering incense. There are several monks who live and work on the premises, too. It’s a very interesting place to visit and photograph, and I found myself there the other night after dinner with friends who were unaware of its existence. I didn’t have my camera at the time, but decided to go back yesterday morning to capture a few shots. I will share a few of those images this week, beginning with this one, which is a view of the 22-foot tall Buddhalila (Walking Buddha) statue on the southeast end of the property.

  1. I can’t wait to see more from this series! I think B&W is perfect for this image 🙂
    I haven’t been to a monastery either, so I look forward to getting a glimpse of it through your lens.
