So roughly 8 years ago I set foot on this particular site, my grandparents condo for the weekend, and it was at that point that I realized what I was missing in the very simple use of a Photo…not to showcase my photography skills, as those are clearly not my forte, rather catching a moment in time. Capturing a story of a moment, capturing a picture of a thought…Simple really : A photo and a story. Each time I look as this photo I remember my journey on the island of Maui, where I will eventually return to retire and plant my feet in the sand of Keawakapu Beach. We all have photos on our phone, and typically our phoneotos, as I call them, tell a story – this particular evening told the story of a young 25yr old finding beauty in a land unknown to him and realizing that this may very well be the new beginning he was looking for! Many more photos, and stories to tell..!! Until then, All the Best….KL
Interestingly enough I was walking to meet a friend this Sunday morning…typically February is not the best month to be walking around San Francisco yet this particular day happen to be summeresk and actually unusually warm for this time of year. In my mind was actually nothing about this picture but the Super Bowl game I was about to watch and the amount of alcohol I was about to consume.
When I randomly came across this statue in the middle of what was seemingly not the best neigborhood of San Francisco I was a bit taken back…not to mention I about walked into it as I was in sort of a “zone” planning out my day as I walked to meet up with a few of my friends…
I must have stood staring at this statue for at least 15-20 mins…why, I am not entirely sure. What I will say is that every once in a while something grabs us and makes some sort of impact on us – which at that moment we may not even know, all we know is that something about that moment in time was special. I was actually lost to be honest, and had absolutely no intention of even being on this street…I have a pretty large fascination with the Buddhist Culture, no I am not Buddhist, just fascinated by their philosophies…ironic that I stumble across the largest standing statue in San Francisco that day! By the way I also won an iPad that day also…Interesting point in time indeed.!!!
