A new feature for 2018, I am posting a photograph of the day and sharing my work with you.

A Buddhist Monk at prayer at Beomeosa Buddhist Temple in Busan, Republic of Korea.

In 2016-2017, I visited my daughter who was teaching English in Busan Korea. On one of the days she was working, I took the subway up to Beomeosa and took the bus to this Buddhist temple in the mountains overlooking Busan.  I was fortunate enough to catch a monk reciting prayers at the main sanctuary.

[Tweet "In the temples, there are always three Buddhas..."]

I was resting under the entrance to the central area, and I looked across to the main house and spotted him in his grey dress and before the Buddhas.  In the temples, there are always three Buddhas, one is the Buddha of the past, one a Buddha of the present (the largest typically), and one the Buddha of the future.

I took this photograph with my Canon 5D mark II using my EF 70-200mm f/4L IS at 200mm.  I shot this at f/6.3 at 1/60sec at ISO 100.  I processed the photograph in Lightroom with no need to further process in Photoshop.

You can purchase this photograph (as well as others) at my Fine Art America website here.

for Purchase

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens.

Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but can't decide on my next camera) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape and travel photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times!

Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
