一期一会 (ichi-go ichi-e)... "one time, one meeting" or "one encounter, one opportunity". This Zen Buddhist philosophy is usually applied to the Japanese tea ceremony, but it also applies to photography... indeed to life. Be mindful of and cherish every encounter, every experience, every photograph taken... for each is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that can never be duplicated.
