My wife likes this one, I have no idea what to do with it. I might run it through Lightroom and see what else I could do with it. It was this really nice, foggy afternoon that I snapped this one, and it’s way underexposed. It’s all a learning experience with film I’m finding…

Here in the town I live in, Arlington, Wa, there have been several public art installations along the Centennial Trail. It is a paved trail over now unused railway that spans over 50 miles in Snohomish County.

Ryokan, a Zen master, lived the simplest kind of life in a little hut at the foot of a mountain. One evening a thief visited the hut only to discover there was nothing to steal.

Ryokan returned and caught him. “You have come a long way to visit me,” he told the prowler, “and you should not return empty-handed. Please take my clothes as a gift.”

The thief was bewildered. He took the clothes and slunk away.

Ryoken sat naked, watching the moon. “Poor fellow,” he mused, “I wish I could have given him this beautiful moon.”
