In my photography I am continually attracted to contemplative places that require a special kind of care to actually see. It is the peacefull attentiveness we often associate with the Zen garden, but which I find throughout this great city, especially so in its traditional architecture and culture and in its agricultural fields.
I live in a northern section of Kyoto City, an area called Iwakura. It is a unique and lovely mixture of old and new, of rural and suburban, of sacred and secular. It has inspired me for years, and a large number of my Kyoto photos are come from this part of the city.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy these pictures of a Kyoto life.
Be still with yourself
Until the object of your attention
Affirms your presence.
