Buddha Reflecting

“…for you know that soft is stronger than hard, water stronger than rock, love stronger than force.”
― Hermann Hesse,

Here is the final photo — and the only one not in B&W — I will be sharing this week from my walk around the Wat Florida Dhammaram monastery in Kissimmee. This Buddha figure is one of two that are positioned in front of the Uposoth (“Observance Day Hall”), the main temple structure on the property. I hope you have enjoyed this series of photos as much as I enjoyed making them.

Reflecting At The Royal Eatery

I was waiting to cross the street when I turned around and noticed this gentleman sitting at a window table in a downtown Salt Lake City diner. I liked how the reflection of the tree, car, sidewalk and planter pulled him out of the confines of his diner surroundings and thrust him into the outside world. I also liked the way the metal piece on the rear of the reflected vehicle masked his identity.

I did not like that I was in a rush and had to ignore my sudden craving for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee.
