How do we make our different points of view blend and bend so they meet end to end?
Aspects of Photography – Psychology of Colour – YouTube We are surrounded by colour everywhere and our senses perceive these colours in a way that can add a mood to the setting or invoke a personal emotion dependent on the dominant colour in the scene.

Using Google Maps and Other Photographers To Locate Your Landscape Locations | Fstoppers We have all been there: you see an image online that gives you the best perspective of a location but you have no idea exactly where it is located.

Undocumented Mexican migrant workers allowed Americans to continue their lifestyle through difficult years and how quickly we have forgotten. Seemingly, we have not […]
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.

A lot of jibber jabber about the problem of refugees on social media. Images however, for those who care to see, start to bring the problem home and make it real. I pray this article and these images perform an angioplasty on the hearts of those who have turned their head away from this tragedy. This is not their problem. This is everyone’s problem.

Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.” So Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother while it was still night, and left for Egypt. He remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “OUT OF EGYPT I CALLED MY SON.”
The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the exalted of the earth languish.

Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
