    Random Photo Thread

    Photos can be of anything, anywhere.
    A photo you post can have a connection to the previous one, or not.
    You can add comments, or not.

    *** Only one rule: You must be the photographer. No stealing from the web. ***

    Thank you!

    Autumn on my way to work. It only lasted for 2-3 days in this beauty.

    A bit on the morbid side, but took this one last evening. Think the poor little guy got a bit cocky with his "tight-rope" walking...

    Hi Nindo,

    The thing that struck me about this photo(after I got over my envy ) is how peaceful of a way start to your work day this must be for you. A while back I had chosen to skip the freeway, on my trek to work, in favor of the pace(and view!) of the side streets . Something just never sat well with getting out of bed early and driving 70mph at 5am. Everything wizzing by at such a blurying pace always just seemed to disturb my mental state. After giving up the freeway, I now have a pace which allows me to enjoy many wondrous sights along the way. Changing my drive from a commute to a journey.

    Gassho,
    John

    Hi John,

    good on you for getting off the freeway! Yesterday morning I returned a rental car during the morning rush hour, and seriously, I'm so glad I don't have to be stuck bumper to bumper every day...

    Even when walking, peace or no peace is still up to your mind, though. Sometimes I'm present, sometimes I'm not. I need to cross a couple of larger roads and I do get into a rage occasionally when cars don't stop! The stretch through the forest can be one big sheet of ice in winter (you cannot see how sloped it is!), so it can be quite scary to slither down there. Once a week or so I pick up the garbage, and sometimes I get angry about all those carelessly tossed coffee cups and McD bags.
    Biking is a whole different story - you need to be alert 100% all the time and do the thinking for some drivers. I used to bike a lot more than I did this summer, but found it too stressful :P

    Thanks Shokai!

    It's a park near my house. I love to go walking early on Sunday mornings and sometimes I get this kind of pictures.

    Very relaxing place to be.

    Shohei;

    Thanks for sharing the pic. You should come visit us in the banana belt sometime. I promise to show you the snow shoes I wore when I lived in Ottawa. To be honest, envy is not something I'm feeling right now. :lol: :lol:

    Re: Random Photo Thread

    This is Bridal Veil Falls near Raglan on NZ's North Island, taken during our trip earlier this year.
    It reminds of Shunryu Suzuki's talk "Nirvana,The Waterfall" (page 92, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind) where he talks about visiting Yosemite National Park.

    "Before we were born we had no feeling; we were one with the universe. This is called "mind-only," or "essence of mind," or "big mind,"
    After we are separated by birth from this oneness, as the water falling from the waterfall is separated by the wind and rocks, then we have feeling. You have difficulty because you have feeling. You attach to the feeling you have without knowing just how this kind of feeling is created. When you do not realize that you are one with the river, or one with he universe, you have fear.
    Whether it is separated into drops or not, water is water.
    Our life and death are the same thing. When we realize this fact we have no fear of death anymore, and we have no actual difficulty in our life.
    When the water returns to its original oneness with the river, it no longer has any individual feeling to it; it resumes its own nature,
    and finds composure. How very glad the water must be to come back to the original river! If this is so, what feeling will we have when we die?"

    The image file you tried to attach is invalid. (Jpeg)

    Is there a specific way to upload photos? I am just uploading through the "upload attachment" option.

    Mostly I've see this because of size. If it's too big it won't let you upload (think the max is 256k).

    Maybe it doesn't like the extension (try changing it to .jpg).

    Last but not least you can upload to tinypic.com and then just do it as a url instead:

    [img]some-link-to-the-tinypic-image[/img]

    I use that a lot because I find the current forum limitations annoying

    Oh yes the Origami Buddha, I made it when I sprained my ankle a month ago It is a design from the great Hojyo Takashi

    I wasted some common paper sheets to do it, and the hands of it are not really finished, as other details, but I couldn't find any Origami paper

    Anyway, here is what I used:

    Document with instructions, It is in portuguese but just follow (carefully) the pictures.

    I think step 26 is the most tricky, the following video will help you (by minute 13:30):

    Hi Willow!

    I just recorded a small tutorial for you. You can watch it here: http://www.screenr.com/Rhi8

    Errata: Instead of "now", I wrote "no". Please read it as "now uploaded to the server".

    Let me know if you have questions.
