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

The Swing of Life




Zen and the Art of Photography

Driven by a passion for photography and a fascination with the Zen Buddhist
philosophy, the author conceptually and experientially examines the relationship
between Zen Buddhism and the art of photography. 
Among the subjects discussed:
What is the relationship between haiku and photography? 
What is the relationship between the mind of the photographer while creating a photograph 
and the Zen concept of the Empty Mind? 
What role does intuition and feeling play in
photography? 
In Zen? 
Through examination of these concepts and relationships,
the author explains the heightened awareness, joy, and enlightenment he has
experienced through photography and suggests ways that others may share in
the creative process.

Fantastic images.
What about Zen and the art of cooking? Zen and the art of car driving? Either we have Zen inside us and live it in everything, or we have breakfast, TV and football, without any distractions)).
