How I know God guides my photography.....

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the skies announce what his hands have made. Day after day they tell the story; night after night they tell it again. They have no speech or words; they have no voice to be heard. But their message goes out through all the world; their words go everywhere on earth."
Psalm 19: 1 - 4 (NCV).

Every time I look through the lens of my camera I see God working. Every day He reveals His majesty. Every night He shows me how He creates beauty even in the darkness. Even if I had not known Him before I started taking photos, the moment I looked at His creation up close (or far away) I see His glory and He guides me to see His beauty in all He has created. Photography just allows me to capture an image of what He has created.

A Taste of Southern France December 2008-January 2009

(~Vacation with a camera ~)

These photos were taken with a simple point and shoot (I really didn't want to carry a heavier DSLR with me... so much to see and so little time to shoot). I took over 1,600 photos on this 9 day trip (two in the air) and I wish the skies were as blue (and cloud filled) as some for these photos. Most of the time it was very overcast and rainy... it's amazing what a small point and shoot can do given the ever changing weather conditions. I still prefer the DSLR when it comes to quality, however, the point and shoots are quick, versatile, and just very convenient. Some I've printed on 13 x17 high gloss photopaper with very good results even at 8.1 mega pixels.
