The World According To The World. A Frightening Look.

Whatever belief system you subscribe to, I think most of us can agree that civilization is becoming increasingly self-destructive. I suppose we may have been more barbaric in the distant past (and that may be debatable). Yet, has man’s creation of increasingly complex systems including government, finance & economics, health & medicine, organized religion, education, agriculture, commerce, technology, science, communications, media, and transportation, promoted progress for the human race? Is progress leaving anyone behind? Are we eradicating sickness and poverty; improving the quality, […]

No God?

Smile, and Put Your Best Foot Forward…

Did you know that a photo of your feet can capture you at your best?

What Makes All The Difference?

I couldn’t, but then I did. I can’t, but now I do. I won’t, but now I will. The only difference my God… is You!”

Where Is The City Of True Love?

Cities are such marvelous expressions of man’s ability to create. God gives us amazing gifts of engineering, craftsmanship, design, and vision. Above the enormous complexity of any city however, is its personality which comes to life when you add people and culture to the architecture. People always ask, “where is the best place you have ever traveled?” My typical response is “Everywhere!” That said, I do have different take-aways from each city and can often understand why a certain city […]

Don’t Make Waves. Photograph Them!

What were you doing when you were 25 years old? Well, I was making waves and not really observing them. However, when I got a chance to go to the ocean’s edge, I can remember the crashing sounds yielded by each wave’s immense force. Yet, I was missing the visual brilliance each wave displays as it’s individual fingerprint on the world. The shape; the spectrum of color; the reflections and diffraction of light. When we absorb photographs of these ocean phenomena, we can see the power that […]

Photography Provides A Portal To Many Realities For Most Of Us

The power of photography extends far past simply being an extraordinary visual art. For nearly all of us, it provides the only access to the glory or horror of the many concurrent world events we would otherwise have no way to witness. I believe that more than words or film, photos can freeze a particular moment, impress it into our present conscience, and move us emotionally as no other stimuli can. The use of photography during the Civil Rights Era, the Holocaust, the many […]

Do You Have A Train To Catch?

I know. Easier said than done. But how true and profound. Why are we so preoccupied with getting to the destination and so little attention is given to the journey. From when we are young, we are hammered to get good grades so we can go to a good college. We are convinced we need to do well in college so we can get a good job. We strive to do well at our job so we can climb the ladder. We […]

Do You Want To Be Famous?

The only fame worth pursuing is that which you gain for sharing God. It is a fame that makes you effective and gain the attention of others, but leaves you in God’s shadow so that He gets all the glory.

Can A Photograph Heal?

Photography as a Healing Art Photographs have power. Creative photography allows us to see the world in new ways, to drop preconceptions, and to find focus in a busy, chaotic world. For some, photography is an art; for others, a job or a hobby. But there’s another, rapidly expanding avenue for camera work – photography as therapy. “Photography is a tool for meditation, mindfulness and creative living. Now the emerging field of phototherapy embraces the power of making and viewing […]

Children Are The Hands…

Children are one of the many connections that give us a view to the glory of heaven. The beauty and purity of their nature before the world takes hold of them is a near perfect reflection of heaven’s soil.

“In God We Trust…”

The Founding Fathers of the United States knew this much. They didn’t imprint the currency of the new democracy with “In Government We Trust” or “In Gold We Trust.” They knew that the value and security of the republic’s entire economy could only be safe and preserved in the hands of God. Unfortunately, over this country’s relatively short history, the rich and powerful have managed to shift the trust in our economy into their own hands and we are living the […]

Yes Demi! There Is A God!

We don’t need to understand God’s plan. We just need to participate in it and put our full trust in Him. It occurred to me that if we did understand or had full knowledge of it, we would likely get in the way. Sometimes I really don't understand God's plan. I guess that's when you need to trust him the most. — Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) December 7, 2015
