True Refuge – a photography project

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely fall weather we’ve been having.

Last week I had a chance to spend some quality time at Zen Mountain Monastery in the Catskills, and time to spend engaged in contemplation and photography, taking in the beautiful grounds there.

A collection of twelve photographs expressing the impermanence of life resulted.

I include in this post a few samples. See the complete set here.

Many of the images I captured will provide great starting points for future artworks. There’s much work to be done!

So you should view all of the fleeting worlds:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud;
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.
