From the Collection:THE GARDEN OF PANAGIOTIS
These photos were taken on July 15th 2014 – They are from the Collection: THE HOUSE OF PANAGIOTIS – I started this project in an attempt to immortalize my father’s creative work in his garden. I predict he will love the natural, vibrant colors the camera captured on this rainy day. So, the first row is for my dad. The second one is my attempt to emphasize the distinct lines, shapes, and even try to capture the soul of each flower. I don’t know if I succeeded, but I had to give it a try.

Enlightenment in Buddhism, a spiritual state marked by the absence of desire and suffering
“The flowers sprout, and bud, and grow, and glow. . . . Like a flower in the summertime, so does our heart take refreshment and bloom. Our body is like a flower that blossoms and quickly withers. . . . Perish relentlessly and bloom once more, ye flowers who tremble and fall and turn to dust”.
