To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s all about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…

I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see, and everything to do with the way you see them.

morning colours

I see Your face in every sunrise

The colours of the morning are inside Your eyes

The world awakened in the light of the day

I look up to the sky and say

You’re beautiful

~ Phil Wickham

hide and seek

Myrtle congratulated herself on finally finding the perfect hiding spot.  “Bertie will never find me under here!”

Sadly she had no idea her big rear end was sticking out.

My people will live in peaceful dwelling places,
    in secure homes,
    in undisturbed places of rest.

dewy grass

Summer is here!

Time to go barefoot in the grass, soak up the sun,

climb a tree,  jump in the lake, and have all sorts of outdoor adventures!

sunny side up

When you wake up in the morning, before your feet hit the floor,

crack a smile and put your sunny side up;

it will make everyone’s day a bit brighter.

I met this tireless feathered friend while he was hard at work one afternoon.

Persistent and methodical – he has peppered the entire tree with holes of opportunity.

pasque flowers

tread lightly in the garden of my soul

for there is beauty as fragile as a whisper underfoot

woodland path

Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily,

suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night,

and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.”

~ Charlotte Bronte, in Jane Eyre

spring waterfall

In those vernal seasons of the year, when the air is calm and pleasant,

it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to go out and see her riches,

and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.

yellow pussy willow

She turned to the sunlight

And shook her yellow head,

And whispered to her neighbour:

“Winter is dead.”

for Dad – flying home

Someday we are going to see God in His completeness, face-to-face.

Now all that I know is hazy and blurred,

but then I will see everything clearly…

Beauty is all that is glory and God is Beauty embodied, glory manifested.

This is what I crave: I hunger for Beauty…..

God revealing the weight of Himself, all His glory, through the looking glass of nature …

I pay tribute to God by paying attention.
