Photography as Worship


I don't know what it is about this picture,
but I agreed with what Google declared after I had finished editing it, that it was "awesome"! 
The only difference was, their version of awesome was at odds with mine, 
they wanted to add some fake snow to the image 
and float it across the internet..... No Way!

I would never treat my image in such an irreverent way, 
it was after all an awe inspiring occasion, an act of worship even!
I had been walking out just before dusk, and asking myself 
just what is it that impels me to seek solace in the landscape? 
What part of my soul wants intimacy? What is going on here
when I see something that says 'this composition', 'this beauty', 'click now'? 
This point of contact that pulls me in? 

As my love and I strolled along we had a whole conversation about this, 
we decided between us that it must be like falling in love, that great unknown mysterious chemistry that exerts it's influence compelling the act of merging! 


These other images come pretty close to awesome for me too, after a little tweaking in Picasa


and to say they were taken with my camera phone....

I find solace in God's Creation, no doubt about it, He is an awesome God, and so are the parts of His world.
Wow - beautiful photos and beautiful questions... All I can say is "Divine Magnetism" :)

Hello

A friendly street light
illuminates the dark path
as does bright hellos!




Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning.
Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue

Recuerda mi Corazon

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...




Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people... Later the prime-minister Theresa May declared on a news bulletin that "enough is enough" and that new measures must be taken to counter this....  As she counted out four ways these measures must take place I was feeling a sense of frustration that no doubt countless millions of others must feel in the face of these senseless acts of violence. I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
