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" :)

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'

Snuggling up till spring...

Comfy and cosy feeling all loved up in the comfort of haiku... Just a quick line this week but thought I'd mention 'Doris' the storm that hit our shores.  On our walk through the church yard this morning there was quite a bit of damage, mainly to the trees up-rooting one altogether so that's why my Jasper and me are snuggling up till spring...
