God is in the details

Put a camera in my hand outdoors and give me some spare time, and I’m in my happy place. Back in college when I was learning to develop film and prints in the darkroom, I could honestly stay in there for hours on end, and it would feel like 10 minutes to me. I don’t develop film or prints anymore, but being in nature is the same as being in that darkroom. I love every second. To look at the seemingly ordinary through my lens and see the extraordinary, that only a magnificent God could create, fills my heart with joy.

Being the most vibrant purple, perfectly swirled, ready to open its petals.

I had no idea that the moldy looking stuff growing on some limbs and trees was called lichen, or that it looked hairy. I learned something new!

I wish I had red bud trees in my yard.

I believe that God made nature in all of its different variety and colors purely for our enjoyment. How often do we take the time to notice?

โ€œEarth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.โ€
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
