The Magic of the Cities.
Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

As photographers, we must focus on the details of life and bypass the generalities.
There is a saying in Zen: examine the living words and not the dead ones.
We must open a direct line to reality, unclouded by the dust of the past - see Eden before the expulsion.
Our challenge is to see the living fact - to become intimate with life.
