Congratulations to our May winner, Jessica Stepushyn, for her photograph that speaks of the idea that less is more… As famous author Corinne Trang puts it,
I love the environmental aspect, recycling an object to create another to lift people’s spirits. In this case using a jewellery box may even be a reference to the Three Jewels. I also love the idea that it’s inexpensive and that anyone, with some imagination and a budget, can easily come up with. In other words spirituality is not about the altar but rather the intention behind the altar. And it makes for a wonderful gift as well. Very powerful.
Renowned fashion designer Eric Choong also likes Jessica Stepushyn’s photo, he paid extra attention to the caption and meaning behind the photo, and was touched by her words.
Because I am touched by what she wrote for her photo caption ….very sincere and touching….what she says (it is more about the devotion than the objects). This photo is clean and simple yet very natural….It can inspire the younger generation to have a small shrine similar to this for them.
The other lucky consolation prize winners to win a Turquoise pendant each courtesy of VajraSecrets.com are Andrew & Thierry, Grace Leong, Meng Kiat Heng and Ethan Hoo.
Award winning interior designer Valerie Choi comments on Andrew and Thierry’s photo:
Andrew & Thierry’s photo perfectly arrange in between the box up column and good configuration of the material as well as the colour, candle beside and statue itself looks like a sculpture arrangement.
Photographer Brandon Lim comments on Grace Leong’s photo:
One gets a strong sense of tranquillity by looking at Grace Leong’s photo, while the morning or evening sun gives it warmth and with its tones and colours adds another dimension to the picture. Good composition.
On outdoor altars, Corinne Trang shares:
In general I love the idea of having an outdoor altar, giving passers by a chance to experience it and connect with it instantly. People tend to stop by such places of worship. An altar inside a home is more private.
