It's hard to see- they're tiny in size. What makes a Zen moment and photo?

What makes a Zen moment and photo?

Well, the camera makes the photo. But to try and answer what makes a zen moment would be flippant of me to try and do this in this thread. I would suggest you read “ZEN in the art of archery” by Eugen Herrigel.

Do I have to read a whole book? Can't you sum it up in a short sentence or two?

Any why you want to start controlling your responses now?

@BrianShaw -- did you get some photos shared on Instagram by one of Kodak's accounts? Or is that another BrianShaw? (There are definitely at least 5000 people named Brian Shaw in the world - I met at least one...)

I know. nothing to do with Zen or Venn diagrams....

I could be anybody or anything I want to be!

To me photography (as art) is another form of communicating, either talking to yourself or others.

Like writing poetry or playing music. Just having something to say.

The more I do it, the less the gear matters.

Hence why I dont post here much anymore.

Your point of view is valid and hence you should post more often.

Thats ok. But you are already tracked. :smile:

That’s some nice work on your site, definitely worth a look. As for the cookie issue, I am not concerned about them but as web designer/programmer, I wonder what purpose they serve on yours. Unless the user needs to sign in for something, I generally don’t use them on my sites.

I really don't want to be tracked

There's only one remedy for this and that's to entirely disconnect from the internet every device you use or that's in your home.

Besides, not all cookies are tracking cookies. I've used them a lot in the past to store session information without ever collating those data on a user basis, so only to facilitate session management on the client device.

Thank you, its a work in progress that I started on last night.
The cookies as far as I know are not trackers but site functionalty types that are there by default from Zenfolio, my host.
I do not have the passion for creating websites from scratch anymore so there you go.
