Most importantly, I see creation. I love to take pictures in sunlight, because it makes everything glow. I am a tad bit proud of the photo above, because of the focus on the flower, and the reality of it. You see, it isn't just a flower. God made that flower unique. There are flowers that look like it, but when you look carefully at the finer detail, you understand that no flower is the same. Every flower is just as unique as our finger prints. If you focus on a flower long enough, you will see the detail that God has poured out into his creation.
I've always hated walking into webs. They are sticky and there is always the uncertainty that a spider may have been in it, and could be now crawling in your hair.... Brrr.
However when I started taking photos of them, I realised that they aren't just an icky spider creation, they are quite beautiful (most of them).
When you think about it, photographers are always taking photos of unique things. Even buildings and objects that are created by human hands or machines are unique. A lot of buildings look the same, but the minerals used to make the materials for buildings, such as steel, concrete and glass, have their own special place.
Do you see what I'm getting at?
God is in everything. God created the minerals, used in building materials. Yes, humans created the buildings, but God started it :)
How can photographers and artists not believe in God, even though they are capturing the most mind-boggling things?
