Summer's Lease

Since study hall is having to compete with the Vuelta a Espana this week, a few photos instead - we are possibly into the second half of our summer here, after the fog months. Yesterday was balmy, and there were clear skies overnight, and more sun today:

Yesterday evening
The moon this morning before zazen
I snuck upstairs to take this before service
After breakfast

nice photos!! Capturing the moment at the right place, at the right time is perhaps a lesson in impermanence. Return minutes later and the stunning scenes may be gone forever.

Thank you. That was definitely the case with the third picture - I could see the light when I came up from the zendo, and while I wouldn't usually go upstairs at that time, I knew how fleeting the light would be. My current show is a lot about getting that moment. Not that it is necessarily better than another moment, but it is always transient.

Shucks.

The 'before service' one is my favourite, fabulous :-)

Shots of the city continue to fascinate. So many different types of light and weather conditions.
