A few pictures from last week

I've been busy preparing a revised version of 15000 Buddhas for the website so there wasn't much shooting this week.  I did go to the Hsi Lai Buddhist monastery Saturday and made a few pictures while I was there.  Hsi Lai is filled with beautiful icons which I hope to be shooting soon but for now I only made a few exploratory pictures.

A large and fierce icon made from what must have been a very large tree trunk.  I thought of him as a guardian of concentration, my concentration I hope.

Late afternoon Sunday, deep in the dusky hour. One of the many feral cats that enjoy our backyard pauses and regards me for a moment.

The last gasp of daylight, flat and dim.  With film cameras I would have quit an hour ago and waited for real night to fall.  Now there is a way to make pictures at any hour.
