The Wandering Path by SarurunKamui The Wandering Path by SarurunKamui
Edited version of [link]
I want to submit this one to the Scholastic Art Awards as well. I really love this photo. It think it really captures the beauty, simplicity and serenity of Japanese temples.
Even though they really aren't that simple... they wander all over and are filled with gardens are amazing woodwork. It took me a while to get a mental map of Ninnaji (in Kyoto). I think the wandering layouts are meant to make these temples feel larger than they are.

Great shot! I love the wood textures in Japan. The floors often have some kind of lustre which I really love. I've spent November 2011 on vacation in Japan and I can't wait to go again!

Thank you! Yes, they truly do wonders with their wood. Especially to walk barefoot in these temples, the floor smoothed by hundreds of years of bare feet before... what an experience. <3

I can't wait to go again either! I might try to study abroad in Kyoto in a few years. Seems like a photographer's paradise.

Japanese architecture very much possesses those qualities. I'm glad it captures that spirit. Thank you.

Thank you! It really is a gorgeous temple.
I'm lucky I got to go to Japan at all... we almost didn't have enough money. It was the most amazing experience I could possibly dream of, though.

Nope, on the floor. ^^ I didn't bring a tripod with me to Japan, just my little PowerShot.
