The Exquisite and Ineffable

After spending six years in Japan, I grew accustomed to the intricate details put into all the temple and shrines.  Even in small neighborhood shines, there was a level of care given, that helped me re-gain my appreciation and desire for beauty in religious spaces.

The photo above was take in Nara, Japan and I’ll never forget the ineffable wonder of standing in that space, looking up at the statue, smelling the wax and the incense.

Exquisite.
