Divine Nature



For since the creation of the world 
God's invisible qualities-his eternal power and 
divine nature 
- have been clearly seen.
Romans 1:20


These words spoke deeply of the experience I encountered  several years ago as I began to nurtured an interest in photography. Images framed by my lens continuously placed me in companionship with God. The reflection of the world in the medium of digital photography illuminated the magnitude of God’s presence on earth and in the creation of ALL things therein.

  4. Yes, Deidra, a peony in Lake Placid NY. This shrub was tucked in the corner of a restored garden filled with just that right amount of light, only slight breeze, But the graduation of hue, the layers of petals that was caught in the photo, frankly, blew me away. Pleased that you enjoyed it.

    1. Yes! Doesn't the camera offer the unique ability to observe and record one's own inner life of creating meaning in response to all that captures our attention in the beauty that surrounds.
