Unique vision from a blind photographer – Bristol24/7
Not all people who have met the misfortune of homelessness are homogeneous and can be lumped into one group. Homelessness does not define a person. Rather, it is a description of one’s circumstances and not who they are. Let us never forget that these are individuals with their own special stories and the blessing of life from God. Furthermore, the label alone will never define the potential of a single person. Just ask world-renowned author and humanitarian, J.K. Rowling. However, […]
“The color of beauty is light.” -Greg Pai Without light, there is no way to literally see beauty and there is certainly no need for photographs or photography. Light represents the fullness of all colors, visible and invisible, in the spectrum. So, why is this important? Because the “Voice of the World” wants you to believe that certain colors are more “beautiful” than others. Moreover, advertisers use our natural response to colors to shape the way we think about them […]
For most of us, the life of those depicted in the images from this NPR article is simply unimaginable. Still, there is an immense beauty about them that is not easily understood. Probably because hardship brings out the absolute best in us. It separates us from our comfort zone that tends to take off the pressure of truly “living life” and pursuing our full potential. Hardship builds character. It inspires the possiblity of the impossible. It humbles us to the point where our humanity radiates love, […]

We live in a “Snap Chat” culture and we are snapping and chatting our lives away desensitizing ourselves to the beauty of the world around and within us. We went from hanging memorable pictures on the wall, to the photo album, to the slide tray, to the shoebox, to the hard drive, and now a plethora of images in the cloud getting little to no attention. Let us not confuse the gift of sight with the blessing of seeing. Seeing takes […]
Probably more than me because I knew nothing. But when I learned that it was a book about algae and also published by the first female photographer, I had to wonder why I never heard about this before. Granted, algae are not the most photogenic subjects. However, the cyanotyping film process made them perfect for the technology of the day. Then it occurred to me that it may have been a more perfect subject for other reasons. Algae are some […]
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 […]
What a great perspective from Joy Harjo. Feels like God’s perspective too. Our perspective does not hold weight against God’s perspective. So, while having a perspective is in our nature and part of our creative and strategic thinking gifts, we should always seek God’s perspective for reconciliation to our own. God’s perspective is what we should strive to unearth and embrace because it is rooted in truth and comes directly from the source of creation.
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 […]
Beauty is in the eyes of the Creator; Not the beholder. What was the Creator of beauty’s take on the events of Sunday night’s pageant?
“I Know You Are There Because I Am Here.” by Greg Pai I have been young I have been old At times withdrawn Other times bold I’ve felt rich I’ve known poor It’s loved that I love And ignored I abhor I seek joy Avoid pain Told I’m predictable But can act insane! Often I’m smart Sometimes not so much Occasionally strong Sometimes needing a crutch I can be honest And yes, I can lie Because I am not perfect Except in Your […]
by Greg Pai Photo Credit: Mo’NY (Sophia, Bulgaria) End of fall Seasons change Rearranged plans and pace Never can find the perfect time for troubles I may face Fears takes hold Touch bottom that’s bottomless Escaped confidence; Surrender all choice Unrest in the unknown disrupting my home An absence of God’s voice? End of fall Seasons change Firmly chained, to mysterious fate Where is trust when it I need it most Why must it come too late Falling leaves depict the end of […]
A photograph has the technical ability to freeze time still. But a photograph that stirs the emotions has the God-inspired ability to freeze time while activating our mind’s senses and the pumping of our hearts. It is a stillness embodied in motion. “I like it when time is so still that I can actually observe the clock turning under it’s hands” -gp As we train our eyes to behave a bit more like a camera, we will begin to have a greater appreciation […]
Beauty is not in the eyes of the beholder (as the world would want you to think). Beauty is in the eyes of the Creator. Oh… If only we had such perfect vision.
Good Day World! Don’t just smell and taste the coffee this morning… See it too! Sounds crazy – Maybe… But the God-given gift of sight is what opens our eyes to possibilities in our life and in our world. Fine tune your visual senses and thank God for all that He has placed before our very eyes. More importantly, illuminate all that is around you – So others can See the Coffee Too! Bless you! -GP
