P N C O

Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Experiental

Today i’ve wandered through the forest, seen and heard many birds.. came back home full of experiences and photographs

The interesting thing about all these experiences was that earlier today i was reading a book by Lama Tsongkhapa in which he describes how much we’re attached to our senses.. and indeed, in the forest i was constantly on the watch for sights and sounds. Perhaps that’s the downside for me of taking the camera with me. Or better said, it’s a lesson for me. First relax the mind, eyes and ears and then engage with the forest, connect with it without wanting to grasp at certain experiences (like seeing a kingfisher or a squirrel)

So today ended up being both rewarding in terms of photographs and in applying wisdom..

 

Zebra Finch

A series of the zebrafinches.. The sound these little Zebra Finches make always reminds me of a clip made by Pixar. They┬┤re so famous nowadays, who doesn’t know their movies (e.g. Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc etc).. one of my personal favorites is a short clip called ‘For the Birds’ – check out the clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzimNEikhWM
