Wattle Spring The idea of only 4 equal seasons is a euro-centric notion that doesn’t apply in much of the world. Some places have three seasons one of which is ‘dust’. Aboriginal  Australians often thought in terms of six seasons tied in to what food was available at each time. I think of wattle blooming as the herald of the local spring and today is a perfect August spring day and our acacia is blooming wonderfully after building up to it for a month or so. A kind of golden grace. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/  #floralfriday   #HOME   #seasons   #RvK

traditional style - A woman, high on the Tibetan plateau mixes a bunny motif with her local attire. #Tibet   #Plateau   #style   #travelphotography  Her cheek colouring however speaks of the the harsh and cold climate, rather than fashion. She runs a business selling prayer flags for which there is a very ready market in Tibet. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0 #RvK

In for the long haul these two monks were part group taking a few days to chant a particular text.  #buddhism   #monks   #Tibet   #presence   #lovingkindness  They were flexible and warmly gestured to me to sit in when I visited their monastery high on the Tibetan plateau. They were chanting a  chenrizi text, loving kindness, and they certainly seemed to embody that spirit. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/  #RvK

Easy Riders - Two Tibetan men in a Plateau town directly meet the camera’s gaze. #Tibet   #Presence   #livingculture  .These towns have an amazing ‘wild west’ quality. Lots of bikes and horses mixing with hard worked vehicles. These men would traditionally be Yak herders, and probably still are, though many have been ‘resettled’. Their dress reflects a commitment to maintaining their proud culture.The man on the right is astride his motor bike outfitted with carpets. Riding in these icy cold conditions must be bone chilling at times. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/
