Silence by Chris Armytage™

How long had Ryoanji been there? You must have asked -
but there is no remembrance,
just the rocks
and the gravel and the wall
and the very great silence,
the rootedness of deep meditation,
the weight of the rocks and the trees of this earth,
as if their roots grew right down through your heart…
Ryoanji Zen Garden. By Jan Haag.

A zen theme reminiscent of the Chinese or Japanese pen and wash paintings. All done with my own stock photographs, taken with a Canon EOS 450D and layered and manipulated in Photoshop.

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.
