Buddha Statue Shot With IPhone

I was up in San Francisco today and stumbled upon this fantastic Buddha. The only camera I had with me was my IPhone and I think the shot came out okay however I did adjust the background.

  1. I was looking at some of your pictures last night and they literally take my breath away. You capture the beauty of life so amazingly. This one really caught my eye. I love Buddha and am very interested in Buddhism and Zen and things of that sort.
    I recently got a real camera. I think I remember writing to you that I wanted one a while ago. I tried to get a Canon one at a couple different Target stores but they were out. I got a Nikon one though with wifi access. I’m still learning how to use it and getting my laptop set up with wifi also. My dad bought me the camera, last one on clearance, but recently he accidentally broke it when he borrowed it. He fell and cracked the part that comes out when the camera is turned on. I don’t know what it’s called but it’s the circular thing around the lens. The lens is not touched or broken at all but the circle/cylinder thing is very dented and the rim is hanging off. When the camera is turned off, it doesn’t go back in all the way. It still takes pictures which look good to me and probably the average person but since I’m not experienced with cameras and photography, I wouldn’t really know if the quality is affected. Like when someone plays an instrument and is very experienced and the instrument breaks but still sounds very good to the rest of us, the person who is very experienced will still know.
    Your photos are the best I have ever seen! I love looking at pictures and I even signed up for the 365project/photo a day for one year. And recently got a photo bucket account.
    Thank You for sharing and inspiring everyone with your amazing talent!

    • Nikon is a great camera but remember the real magic happens in your minds eye. The 365 project is very hard and I hope it turns out well! Thank you very much and thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. I have just been on a virtual pilgrimage where zen, Buddha and haiku have been blended.
    The posts by http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com/ have been entertaining and informative.
    Today will be our last stop (of almost 88 temples – about 50 or so posts).
    I started on Feb 1 and made the journey with kaeru (my frog guide) on my blogspot site.
    Yesterday we stopped here: Nagao-ji, temple 87, devoted to Guanyin the bodhisattva of compassion.
    And I drew inspiration from ‘Flighty’ for my Renga (for that post):

    rainy March morning
    cantankerous coven: crows;
    murder dawns’ breaking

    kaeru loves their tympany
    as if bullfrogs sang love songs

    tourists without maps
    ravens travel noisily
    while I sip my tea

    I really enjoy your photography. Thanks for stopping by my place, which reminds me to take the time to visit your inspired visions.
