This reproduction of a 16th-century Dutch windmill is a chapel on the grounds of the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades, California. It’s a very beautiful and peaceful place to spend a few hours, whether to read a book (as many were doing), feed the koi and birds in the lake (and perhaps have a swan nibble on your toe, as happened to me), or just walk around and find lovely photo opportunities. This image has been processed to emulate opalotype, a 19th-century process of printing a monochromatic photograph on milky, translucent glass. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/1000 sec., ISO 100, afternoon sun, handheld).
