"The Rocks are where they are – this is their will. The rivers flow – this is their will. The birds fly – this is their will. Human beings talk – this is their will. The seasons change, heaven send down rain or snow, the earth occasionally shakes, the waves roll, the stars shine – each of them follows its own will. To be is to will and so is to become."
- Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki
Today we feature an excellent black and white composition of Mizen Head by Bret Culp. Bret's work focuses on the beauty of impermanence, a buddhist doctrine which asserts that everything that exists is "transient, evanescent and inconstant". Like everything else, the landscape is subject to decay and destruction over the passage of time. Thousands of years have peeled back layers of rock in this image of Mizen Head which beautifully reflects Bret's recurring theme of impermanence.
