Buddhist temples are the most numerous, famous, and important religious buildings in Japan. The Japanese word for a Buddhist temple is tera (寺?).
Buddhist temples, like any other religious structures, need to be organized in order to best serve their various purposes. The most primary space in any Buddhist temple complex is the sacred space, where images of Buddhas and bodhisattvas are kept, and where important rituals are performed. This area is always separated off from the areas accessible to the lay worshippers, though the distance between the two and the manner of their separation is quite varied. In many temples, there is little more than a wooden railing dividing the sacred space with that of the laypeople, but in many others, there is a significant distance, perhaps a gravelled courtyard, between the two.
Dulce is a small town in Northern New Mexico. This old wagon is standing in the middle of the town. I thought is was a good photography subject so I took few shots of it. Now that I went back to get more information about it, I had no idea this town had such a mysterious reputations.

Getting to this location was a pain due to high tide, but was well worth it. Ten other photographers had the same idea. Six hiked through the rocks with us, two shot from the top, and another two didn't bother and shot across with a telephoto.

This shot was taken on an incredibly windy evening in Bodega Bay! It's taken from a pull out off of Highway 1, and overlooks Salmon Creek running into the Pacific Ocean at North Salmon Creek Beach. It's two shots, 1 exposed for the sky and 1 exposed for the foreground. I used masked layers in Photoshop to blend the two together. I'm pretty happy with it, wish it was a tad more in focus but I feel the wind contributed to that a lot as well!
