Description The wisdom of Lao Tzu, in words from the Te Tao Ching, reminds us of the costs of temptation. 'If you try to change it, you will ruin it. Try to hold it, and you will lose it.' The Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, or Dao De Jing also simply referred to as the Laozi, is a Chinese classic text.
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.
