  1. 🙂 Have you undertaken a personal mission this week to make Bryan wonder why he even picks his camera up? The Morning Glory just looks so cool in with the rest of the shot.

    Ha! That’s funny. Glad you like the shot.

  2. I’m detecting a photographic theme, one of getting down low and looking up. And it is a good theme in my humble opinion. Very cool.

    One of the easiest ways to make something look fresh is to pick a different perspective, looking down, looking up, whatever, just different.

    Anyway, on to your title. Where God Is – Agreed (with respect to the image). But wouldn’t God also be out with the yellow flowers as well (previous post)?

    Response from Steve:
    Hi, Jeff. The positional theme wasn’t intentional, but, now that you mention it, I have been doing that a lot. Interesting. And yes, God would also be found where the yellow flowers bloom, but those photos don’t provide the same layering of ironic potential. The flowers are photos of flowers, but the present one — when paired with its title — is a photo of the viewer’s spiritual address. It’s not about the scene, but the reader’s mind. Maybe I revealed the location of my own God thoughts, or maybe I didn’t. The important thing is this: Which of the five addresses (or relational connectedness between them) did you associate with the title? That’s who you are, spiritually, on a very basic level.

    And I think that’s fun to discover or reconsider.

  3. I love this! You’ve captured so much in one simple frame! At first, stereotypical judgements surface…the church seems to represent majesty and faith and order while the weeds and lowly blossom might symbolize a simple wildness or unruly chaos in need of intentional care. But what if the opposite were actually true?

    Yeah, what if?

    I like your processing of it. I wondered what people would see.
