Photographer's Note

In Japan, and in any gardens of temples, Chohzu can be found. In Japanese term the word Choh= hands, Zu=water. Thus the meaning of the word Chohzu translate roughly to hand-water. It is a small fountain in the western term. This Chohzu was found in a temple garden of Nakain this summer. The water is normally used to clean and to purify one’s hands or even one’s face. In the middle of summer a scene of the Chohzu and sound of water trickling down is very soothing and agreeable to our senses.

I would like to dedicate this image to Manuel who is very generous and kind to everyone and today he was very kind to make a tribute to me. I am very grateful. Please go and visit his wonderful gallery at following address.
