Suzhou, Lion Grove Garden – 苏州狮子林

Of all the famous rock-gardens in history, only one has survived. This is the so-called “Lion Garden” in SuZhou. The Lion Grove Garden was built in 1342 during the Yuan Dynasty by a Zen Buddhist monk, Wen Tianru, in memory of his teacher Abbot Zhongfeng. At that time the garden was part of the Bodhi Orthodox Monastery.

Here are some shots I made during a short trip to Suzhou recently.

The enemy

Here is a fun project I had on my mood board for quite a while already. The idea popped into my head after the Vipassana meditation course that we took in India. Who is he…? The most powerful and the only enemy of mine?

That was so great. Nice weather, photography, me busting out capoeira moves.. Thank you, YeBing for helping me out with photo session, really appreciate it.
