The Sagrada Familia is beyond description. It feels as grand as the Grand Canyon and just as difficult to capture beyond mere impression onto film. I was really taken by the cubist sculptures which is a style so rarely used for Christian artwork.

It is exciting for me to consider that the building might be completed in my lifetime.

There was a beautiful grand installation of fire in Marie outside of the Louvre for Nuit Blanche in Paris this year. The installation consisted of chimneys creating columns of fire, charcoal pyres, iron sculpture holding terracotta pots burning kerosene, and a large handing chandelier of fire.

I brought the Polaroid 101, which was a hit amongst the Parisians, and tried to capture some of the flames on film.

When I visited Paris my friend Mika took my out to take photographs in the morning. When we passed Ladure and she found out that I hadn't tried one of their Macaron we had to come in out of the cold and take some with us to go.

Here I am at odds with trying to describe to Mika's mother exactly how good the caramel Macaron is. They truly are great!

Jesse's 得度式 (Tokudoshiki)

Last week my friend Jesse became a monk in a ceremony called a "tokudoshiki" (Japanese: 得度式). The monks were very gracious to allow me access to take photographs and although I was able to take many I will try to be respectful by only posting a few of them. Allowing photographs at an event such as this is very unorthodox.

The ceremony was very long, perhaps four or five hours in total. At this point in the ceremony Jesse had not yet had his head shaved nor received his new name.

Alms Practice

Jesse took my friend and I to Kawasaki-daishi temple. After watching and participating in a Buddhist ritual peppered with the esoteric—fire, chanting, and a monk beating a large drum—we walked around the grounds and finally back out into the surrounding town. There we saw not an atypical sight: pacing up and down the street was a monk chanting the heart sutra and collecting alms.

I understand it was part of a monk's practice to collect rice or vegetables through public offering but now food has given way to money. Today money is even non-essential as many temples have large endowments. Money has yielded simply to practice.

While crossing the street I saw this boy waiting. "Nice boots," I thought to myself.
