Shooting on a theme

Our shooting assignment at the retreat in Trochu was to create a body of work around a given word. We had to present four photos on the theme. I was given the word "tradition". My original idea was to shoot a set of images about Buddhism and meditation. And then I didn't, because I couldn't quite come up with an idea for the 4th image. My new friends were curious, so I promised to complete the idea when I got home. 
Here is that set.
