The shadow-reality of the black and white image in the “straight” photograph … invites us to become the world it re-presents. Some would say that it invites us to imagine the real for ourselves. ~ Richard R. Niebuhr
Seeing our finger,
hearing a frog jump into the water,
experiencing the sunrise,
washing one’s face in the early morning –
anything will serve as a medium of realization if the mind is serene ~ Robert Aitken, A Zen Wave
If you stay at a place where a feeling of loneliness
[or sadness, detachment, voidness] comes,
the contemplative absorption arises in us ~Paltrul Rimpoche
Kiss. There are a lot of ways to capture a kiss, between two people – lovers, family, friends; two animals, or even just the sending or receiving of a kiss. I captured this kiss between two storks in Morocco. I felt lucky to have captured this moment.
In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means KISS to you!
