My Miksang Journey

For those that have been following this blog (And thank you; I really do appreciate it!) you know I’ve developed a liking for Miksang or contemplative photography. While waiting on the next level one workshop with Julie Einstein (more about Julie on Friday) I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in a special Miksang Flickr group. Let’s just say that I’m learning to “see” in a way reminiscent of how a child must see the world: with fresh, untainted eyes. Below are a few examples of images from our color assignment last week:

I’m slowly but surely learning how to see again and only time will tell how I incorporate this new way (original way?) of seeing into my overall photography practice. I have no doubt it will be well worth the practice.
