Seeing through imperfect lenses

December 21, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I could barely see their silhouettes, if not for the blinding headlights beaming through the thick white fog that night which gave them shape. Voices raised in idle chatter as they watched their barking dogs run like the wind in circles around them. I could hear their words so clearly in the night air but I could only faintly see them. 
My photography has always had spiritual implications for me. My camera being a divine tool in my hands, an extension, so to speak, of myself and a tangible way to transfer, through a lens, what is in the core of my heart into a physical image that expresses said emotion....and this photo's illustration and message to me was no different. I was reminded how easy it is to pass judgement based on words only, hearsay, what others tell me, gossip, etc, while seeing dimly, while not having a clear view of the situation, while not having all the facts. This image was a poignant reminder to me about not passing judgement hastily because I might only see the situation dimly through improper filters.
1 Cor 13:12 "For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known."
