When I think of a masterpiece my mind goes first to the beautiful world God made. So many exquisite details all working together in harmony creating a sensory playground for our delight, an expression of infinite love. It cannot be captured in one photograph. I could spend a lifetime photographing it and still not come close to it’s greatness.
And then there are the ways in which we interpret, we mimic, we explore our own creativity. So much fun and beauty, our potential is unlimited. But even the greatest artist has not yet produced anything comparable to the masterpiece of life itself. How fortunate we are to be the co-creators of our world, always adding to the masterpiece that already exists perfectly. Yet the design of this masterpiece is set to be ever evolving, renewing, re-creating and multiplying the love and goodness of it’s creators.
What is life but fleeting moments? It is in the fleeting moments that we find our joy – so we try to capture them and preserve them forever.
I’ve decided to try the WordPress Post A Week Photo Challenge. This will give me the motivation to be more creative even under difficult circumstances. Do you ever find yourself becoming too tired to think, too cold to take the camera out, or not surrounded by enough inspiration? I get that way sometimes, but I don’t like it.
I’m jumping right in and the challenge theme this week is Regret. Take a photo of something that expresses regret to me. Not exactly what I would call inspiring, but I suppose regret is an inevitable part of life that each person experiences in their own way.
I’m sure some people really love winter, my youngest son loves winter. My regret is that I can no longer tolerate winter. Actually I have some regret about moving north in the first place, because the snow and ice has created lots of troubles and accidents for my family.
So, although snow is very beautiful, it makes me feel regret in many ways. I try not to think about it too much, and look forward to other things.
Enough of that, I hope next weeks challenge is a little more inspiring.
