The aim of this blog is not to produce professional photographers, but instead to provide inspiration for people to explore and connect with the innate stillness and clarity of mind. Through this process, we become open to the uniqueness of simple, everyday experiences and so develop a direct and raw relationship with our environment.
“We have to be honest, real, and very earthy; and we need to really appreciate things as they are. They are so beautiful and wonderful already, but in order to appreciate that, it takes time and discipline- so much discipline.. ” Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
