Description As the sun descends, a yogi stands in warrior II position on a beach along the Oregon coast. Yoga is a commonly known generic term for the physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India with a view to attain a state of permanent peace. Specifically, yoga is one of the six stika ('orthodox') schools of Hindu philosophy. One of the most detailed and thorough expositions on the subject is the Yoga Stras of Patanjali, which defines yoga as 'the stilling of the changing states of the mind.' Yoga has also been popularly defined as 'union with the divine' in other contexts and traditions.
Don Schwartz, Portland, Oregon Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape; the sharing of a habitat with nature’s creatures. It is the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment. The quiet places, the places of simple beauty, draw me in – from the delicate splendor of dew dancing on an iris petal to the magnificent breadth of a gray whale slicing through the water. With my camera, I am a blessed witness in a field of splendor.
