Actually these're my works. These works invite you the wonderland. You can put this photography besides you during meditation at home. Also put on the wall of your bed room. It might help to sleep well. Recently I focus on Japanese Buddhism things with homage to Buddhist stature. I've photographed some flying angel, Kan non (Kwan-yin) in water. The flying angel is a guardian of Kan non and a messenger between heavenly world and humans' world. I may meet a real flying angel when photo shooting under water.

You can see inside the gallery as below.
