Kyoto in Snow
My old friend from NY Art Academy days, Bruce Zeitlin, took some remarkable photos earlier today of Kyoto in fresh snow. They feature the famous Ryoan-ji Zen monastery with its renowned sand garden.
There are times when I just love this new internet thing.
This is what the famous Ryoan-ji meditation garden looks like in the spring when it is usually photographed.
Bruce's photographs are like a painting by Sesshu Toyo come to life. Here is one.
