Zen Photography

Photography "When we stand on top of the mountain, gazing at the sunset, we can clearly see the dazzling colors and shapes of clouds draped over the distant mountains, yet at the same time, we also feel the warm evening breeze touching our bodies, we smell the dampness of the mountain pines.... all sensory experience contribute to our experience of the sunset. It may be that we have to turn the camera away from the sunset and photograph our big toes, or some other image that evokes the totality of the experience of the sunset... the composer who is locked into only the visual phenomena of the sunset may miss the heart of what was actually being experienced.... This is why wholebody and mind seeing is so important." John Daido Loori
