Steadfast amidst all the commotion

May 2, 2008

Today is the day before the great celebration of the Lantern Festival. I spotted these honorable monks near Jogyesa Temple this afternoon. This is a celebration of the The Buddha’s birthday and I thank The Buddha for the lighting the pathway that leads those who chose Buddhism to know God’s grace.

    I came from the Sartorialist,

    I’m really excited to see your picture of monks in Korea
    because you mentioned that you love the way they go down the street and in fact I have taken a same kind of photographs at Ginza, Tokyo.

    If you could, compare your photos and my ones and let me hear your opinion!

    one of my photo about monk is put on my website, being included the work called “PATTERNS”

Loved your pictures ūüôā
