Siddhartha

Buddha Reflecting

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

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.

The Voice of Perpetual Becoming

“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.”
― Hermann Hesse,
Siddhartha

This is a photo I really liked when I shot it back in 2005, in Park City, Utah. I came across the original (I-can’t-believe-I-shot-it-in-) JPG a couple of days ago and decided to clean it up a bit. It ended up needing to be cleaned up a lot. The water flowing from this fountain spout was dyed blue and the angle of the afternoon sun made it sparkle; the colors and sparkles of light in the image are as they were captured in-camera. What I had to clean up with this latest edit was the damage I had done years ago making adjustments to the original image in Google Picasa. Thankfully, I have thus far been able to learn from my mistakes, adapt and grow in the process of my perpetual becoming…
