Photographer's Note

In the Confucius Forest, just ouside of Qufu town, stone guardians like these guard the graves of the Kong family. The oldest grave is that of the grand old master himself. As Confucius died in 479 BC, I suppose this must also be the oldest family graveyard in the world.

On a recent trip in China I fell in love with the quiet, respectful atmosphere in this place. This picture is a second upload from a series I shot there.

There is no need
for heaven to say anything.
The four seasons come in turn
and all living things grow
and die naturally.
Heaven needs to say
nothing.
