*Hundreds of spring flowers
the autumnal moon
A refreshing summer breeze
winter snow
Free thy mind of all idle thoughts
And for thee how enjoyable every season is!

Essays in Zen Buddhism – First Series 349*

A bit of whimsy on a lazy Saturday afternoon – several of my own photographs layered and altered in Photoshop CS3. Thanks to my friend Hiroshi for allowing me to take his photo.

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.
