It is the time of the year where many people think about new beginnings and fresh starts. There are two sides to this – grand dreams and where you are currently. For right now, I am setting aside the the wonderful things I will do when I have the resources, when I have the time, when I have built up my skills. Today I focus on what I can do now with what I have.
In the spirit of right here, right now, I am using a photo I took from my window earlier today.
A bare tree, a parking lot and a rather plain building – not a lot to work with. Generally I photograph things that look interesting or have interesting details. Also I take hundreds of digital pictures and then try out many different ones to see what looks good for mandalas. Today, I am just going with one of two pictures I took from the nearest window.
After a little fiddling I came up with this mandala.
