Let's have a zen moment
« on: February 07, 2014, 01:26:04 AM »
The word Zen is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of the Chinese word 禪, which in turn is derived from the Sanskrit word dhyana, which can be approximately translated as "absorption" or "meditative state". - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zen

Here is one that I shot yesterday in Houston.

For me, it seems to occur when I am out in my canoe.. This shot is taken in Ottawa, Canada's capitol city... one of those places in town where you could convince yourself that you are way way out in the wilderness.

Find a nice spot, sit with your eyes closed, and listen to the birds and the water....
The best camera is the one in your hands

Thanks Mr. Surapon.

The monk seemed to be in a very peaceful moment, I also love the halo from the candle. Thanks for sharing your wonderful capture.

What I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.

The buddhist temple is located on the southwest side of Houston. The address is 10002 Synott Rd, Sugar Land, TX 77498. Here is another shot from the same site.

This is my 'Zen' moment, it was taken a few hours before Chinese New Year with the chaos of all the fireworks....there was no wind, noise or smoke and the water was calm....
