Found Things

This is your world. This is your feast. – Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

{Photography} The Caves

If you have never felt the moist, heavy air of being 800 feet underground, I highly recommend it. If you have never sat cross legged on a stone bench in the maw of a cavern and meditated until your toes tingle, I would encourage you to give it a try.  If you have never felt the wrenching, disorienting feeling that comes from ripping straight out of the earth’s belly by elevator after hours of silent reverie, I assure you, the sensation is quite overwhelming.

If you have never tried to get good photography shots (sans flash) in a dim, wet room, navigating your tripod on a small path with hundreds of your fellow visitors, you are probably smarter than I. (But I loved every minute of it.)

(You can find these shots, in better detail, on Flickr)

    Lol thinking about how you would have lugged your gear, but it sure was worth it, wasn’t it? Great texture showing up in those shots.
