Photographing the Royal Air Force jets from the air on film in 1977

DIYPhotography A shoot full of challenges that were well worth solving! Photographing the Royal Air Force jets from the air on film in 1977 With today’s technology, shooting photos from the air is simple. Send up a drone, and you’re good to go. When drones can’t keep up, there are other methods. Attaching remote control cameras to planes and helicopters has been possible for a while. 40 years ago, though, in 1977, the world was still o… Read More at […]

Images That Force Us To Look Into The Mirror

Selfies, advertising, and other staged photography all too often portray a false or fabricated depiction of our society. It is a no wonder that we don’t necessarily feel the immediate pressure to radically change our increasingly violent identity. Yet, images from around the world tell the true story of what we are becoming – Desensitized to violence. Understandably, who doesn’t want to live in “wonderland” like Alice, where we can shut this painful darkness out from our daily lives. However, the […]

What This Guy’s “Crazy” Family Is Really Like!

We all have our special version of “crazy.” It’s a place most of us dare not go for fear of embarrassment and sometimes even pain. Not the crazy that risks one’s life or jepordizes another. Rather, the kind of crazy that is in all of us and forces us to act outside our typical, predictable, and narrow emotional expression. God designed each of us with an infinite range of expression. This includes expressions that most people who know us well would never expect […]

Wasting Away In Consumerville

The waste generated by consumer electronics, or e-waste (primarily computers and peripherals, audio and video equipment, telephone and wireless devices, most office machines, and video game consoles), is a serious problem as you may know or will learn from the images and statistics in the Guardian article below. However, the waste is one problem and the cause of the waste is yet another. More specifically, we have allowed ourselves to become a major part of a destructive “throw-away” economy. The E-waste problem is […]

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, […]

Have A Heart

Photos are wonderful tools to force us still and insight an awareness of things we are too busy to acknowledge. God wants us to appreciate these precious little souls whose hearts are or were physically broken, but not nearly as broken God’s own for all His creation. What may appear to be a photo of scars, is really a reminder of hope. Photo of Babies With Chest Scars From Open-Heart Surgeries | POPSUGAR Moms A strong mom is using one photo to take […]

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 […]

“He Didn’t Tell Me How To Live…”

We have enormous influence on our children even when it seems they are not very interested in us or distracted by the forces of the world. Still, God has tethered them to us and even when they seem least interested, they are learning from us. Let them into our personal world and space where they can watch us at our best. Maybe it’s at the office, or in the kitchen or garden. Or maybe its watching a tender moment with our spouse […]

“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
