Photography ~ Finding Inspiration

Macro Photography

If you are a creative type, where do you find your inspiration? Who lights or inspires you to study in a certain direction, technique, or subject? One of my inspirations are the large flowers painted by Georgia O’Keeffe (1887 – 1986), artist and ‘Mother of American Modernism’.

“Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven’t time and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.” ~ (Georgia O’Keeffe).

No… I cannot draw or paint and I am not anywhere in comparison to O’Keeffe’s art, but I do have a camera and the desire. She inspires me to keep working on my images, including this one of my many flowers. There are always such surprises and beauty found in their structures and essence. Like many other artists, progressive improvement is the end goal throughout it all and to keep working at it, no matter your medium.

Angels

Angel

Angels have been mentioned throughout history and depicted in art, sculptures, stained glass and many other creative expressions across the millenniums. Regardless of your personal beliefs, they can be found in many cultures and religions. They are most seen as messengers or protectors sent to help you even when you cannot see them. They have been a favorite image to capture from the very beginning of my photography days. Since I can’t take a picture of a real angel, I capture them where ever I find them. I haven’t really shared them much with others until now. I hope you enjoy my collection of angels that I post. Here is the first one. I would love to hear from you if you love angels too. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre

Photography ~ Places I’ve Been

Glasgow Cathedral or High Kirk, Glasgow, Scotland.

Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.

Sunday

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

 A Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

                                               Lord make me an instrument of Your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love.

Where there is injury, pardon,

Where there is doubt, faith,

Where there is despair, hope,

Where there is darkness, light,

   and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much

seek to be consoled, as to console,

To be understood, as to understand,

To be loved, as to love,

For it is in giving that we receive and

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,

And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

 

If this prayer speaks to you, please feel free to share. Thank you for visiting today.  ~ terre
