This photos comes from the courtyard from a monastary I stayed at in Koyasan, the sacred mountain area in Japan. When I took this photo just after the morning fire ritual and before I was to interview the big cheese of Shingon Buddhism. I hoped he would say something so miraculous that my life would change in that instant. Sadly, the interview missed the spiritual bullseye, but the photo is a keeper.
The two below were both taken in Kyoto. The first is from the famed Golden Pavilion, and the other is taken near the entrance of the Gion District’s main street.
