Miksang photography

I recently heard about something called miksang photography. It's sort of a type of meditation. The idea is to observe your surroundings in their basic state without any judgments, thoughts, memories, color names, or labels going through your head. So when you look around and something stops you to look at it you identify the important elements, remove the clutter, then take your picture. It's a really neat way of looking at things and it's quite difficult to turn off all thoughts while taking a picture because the first thing you want to do is identify it like oh I'll take a picture of that green plant over there. These are photos from my first go but the process is more important than the result. which is good because my camera didn't really want to focus haha.
