WELCOME TO CLOSER VIEWS - my photo-invitation to slow down and soak in all the wonder and beauty woven through creation! May what you see ~ in my pictures and all around you ~ renew and inspire you!
Photography has been my passion since developing my first roll of film, almost 50 years ago. It has since become an integral part of how I relate to the world; a taproot to the still waters running deep through Creation and a spring that often overflows to those who touch my life.
As with any art form, photography is a way to share the beauty we experience ... as well as the truths that beauty teaches us. When I slow down enough to appreciate the beauty of creation (and the force behind it that loves it into existence), my cup is filled to overflowing. My troubles and concerns are shrunk into perspective as I contemplate the work of a God who cares for even the "insignificant;" who works to show us the love we were created from (and for) by making the effort to put beauty into even the mundane.
These personal gifts of love, our "daily bread," are there for each of us, surrounding us always, always ready to bless and benefit us; waiting merely for our 'yes' ... for us to slow down enough to see and appreciate; leading us (if we allow it) to better understand our own value. Even though we may not see it, we are each a work of great beauty, reflecting the God who created us in His own image. As such, we each have an inestimable ~ and eternal ~ value. This, too, we often overlook ... in ourselves and others.
...So speaks to me the things so often passed by. Hopefully, they'll say something of value to you, too, when you next take time to visit with them.
