500: Pathway, Hônen-in (Mizuno)

Though subdued in mood, this is a vibrant photograph. It appears to be early summer, and the rain-soaked flagstones emphasise the lush foliage. The wide range of textures will prevent this from being tedious as a puzzle, and it would make a wonderful picture for the wall.

What does the name mean?
hô
law
nen
thus
in
temple

Sorry: the gloss is rather mysterious, but after all, it is a personal name.

Born in Kyoto in 1941, Mizuno Katsuhiko earned a degree in literature from Doshisha University in 1964. Since 1969 he has worked as a freelance photographer, in a lifelong quest to capture the essence of Japanese tradition in his native city, and resulting in publication of some one hundred books of his photographs.
