In May 2023, I explored everyday quiet moments within temples of Kyoto. Jet-lagged and up before dawn, I was one of the only ones wandering the streets. I looked at and shot seemingly meaningless details to appreciate the quiet moments before the morning rush. I attempted to slow myself down to see and feel each shadow, beam of light, ripple, tree, and blurry moment. While I'm not Buddhist, these meditative moments had a calming effect on my busy mind.
