121/365-2 Healthy Vision

"Seeing The Bright Side"

May is eye health month and being that healthy vision is important to photographers, many of the Capture Your 365 prompts this month relate to vision, eyes and seeing.  This could be a challenge to the blind kid here:-)

Actually, I like the prompts that challenge me to look carefully and intentionally at my inner world as well as my outer world.  For me, photography definitely has some challenges because of my vision, but working to overcome them is well worth the patience and energy.  Some days I know that my accomplishments are simply the result of hard work, patience and perseverance.  Others days, I have no doubt that it is through divine intervention that the images were created.  I'm OK with both.

I may never be good at photography, but that matters less and less to me.  I enjoy it.  It feeds my soul.   Photography is my spiritual discipline of choice right now.  Through it I am getting to know myself better and am strengthening my relationship with God and God's creation.
