As I sit here contemplating the very battered and confused world around us, I decided to share how I view it, through some randomly chosen photos, and then some great worlds that are far beyond my abilities to write.
Seasons come and seasons go. This image was made years ago in one of Wisconsin’s northern forests. It was accompanied by a comforting peace and quiet. It was only me and a few birds. After I made some images, I simply sat and pondered life. I could use a trip like this now, given the world’s current state.
I love sunrises and sunsets and every so often, I preferred an abstraction of light and shadow, made only from sun and clouds over detail photos.. A powerful escape.
There’s a million (well at least hundreds) of ways to interpret any given subject. Flowers are no different. I enjoyed the “spotty” light here with its highlights and shadows. Most photographers, run or at least pass on little miniature scenes like this. As you know, I enjoy dramatic scenes, but I also enjoy understated, soft, ethereal imagery as well. In some ways, this photo is all of that. God has given us beauty and power in many forms, I always felt that the least I could do is share as much of it as possible. With photography, the viewer of an image, will see what they want, but do so through the eyes of the creator of that image.
Words to remember.
4. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me, Your rod and Your staff they comfort me.
5. You prepare a table before me in the presence on my enemies, You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over.
6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, as I dwell in the House of the Lord.
Thank you for stopping,
