Happy New Year!
Time to return to normal…probably sometime next week. Maybe I can ease back to normal. Most of my photos are taken while on my local hikes. During the holidays I hiked with family and focused on the conversation and relationships with my sons and grandson; intentionally leaving my camera at home.
My youngest son made his yearly migration home from his participation as an entertainer in the renaissance fair community. When not spinning a tale with his wit and charm he pursues the “Flow Arts.” Spinning fire in a variety of forms captures his passion . Each year we get a family demonstration of the latest addition to his spinning portfolio.
We decided to create a little art together in the basement one evening . He spins LED light Poi. I played with the camera settings, learned some new tricks and produced these images of light. And, we brought our worlds together.
Here is a sampling of my holiday photos. Cee’s Oddball Photo challenge seemed to be the appropriate place to show of our unique photo project.
My last summer Monday. One more hike and bike ride. A few more pictures will be taken then its back to school for me. More importantly, I go back to aid in giving sight to the blind, communicating the light my eyes receive to those who cannot receive light. I looki for new angles and better use of light taking snap shots along the way. In school I’ll be looking for new words to give color and impressions for meaning to a boy and his blind teacher who do not see.. I’m privileged to be able to enable them to see, they in return show to me that there is much more to life than sight.
I’m also blessed in life to be entrusted with the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ who came to give us light in a world of spiritual darkness.
Enjoy the images, I trust you are as blessed with light in your life.
But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day. – Proverbs4:18 (NIV)
