Photo Friday Challenge: Details
This week’s Photo Friday Challenge is about the Details. Taking a moment to observe the details is important in daily life, rather than always focusing on the big picture. Last month when I was in Kamakura 鎌倉 in Kanagawa Prefecture in Japan, I took some time to look at the details. I found some very interesting details in the many small, stone Buddhist statues found on the Buddhist temple grounds of Hasedera 長谷寺. These are the sentai-jizo 千躰地蔵, the one thousand bodies of Jizo. These surround a main Jizo figure, and are used to gain the attention of the Jizo, who often looks after the health of children (among other things). Paying attention to the small statues made an interesting photo!
