Blurred Building Beside Blossom

I love how the beauty of God’s work is the focus of this photo, while the Trent Building beside is blurred. As well designed as it is, nothing can match the incredible design of God’s handiwork. I think that is put into perspective beautifully by the focus in this photo. But it does leave the question, have I got my focus in the right place, am I focused on God, or am I bogged down by what society tells me is right, the culture in which we live. This photo is a beautiful reminder of the hope that God brings, if he shows that much love and attention to the blossom of this tree, imagine how much more he loves us, we are all hand made, in the image of our father in heaven.

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.” – Matthew 6:28-29

Colourful Cherry Tree by the Church

What a beautiful day it was yesterday, it was well worth going out on the search for cherry trees, I do love cherry blossom. The bright pink blossom is such a beautiful colour and it contrasts beautifully with the blue sky. I love how the church is captured through the blossom, what better reminder is there that God made the world!

Wilbur’s Writing Websites!

Woah, it looks like Bobby and Wilbur are going to help me to build my website! Wilbur has taken the keyboard and it looks as though Bobby had got the mouse, leaves me a little redundant really. What a great job they have done. Still a lot of work to go until it is finished though. Why not checkout the website that Wilbur has been writing at http://www.capturedupclose.com just don’t expect it to work perfectly yet, after all, Bobby and Wilbur have unleashed their – let’s call it creativity on it. Hmm.

Colourful Campus

I really like this photo, the skyline looking over Jubilee Campus is colourful and the shapes of the buildings are so unique. I love the colours as the sun catches the buildings as it rises.

Canada Geese are Careful in the Cold

The Canada Geese look as though they must be really cold, I wouldn’t fancy standing on the ice in my bare feet. It does look as though they are being careful though. The cold colours in the photo create a calm and peaceful atmosphere, rather a contrast to the chaos that the snow has caused over the past few days.

Wonderful Windmill

I really like this photo, the blue sky provides a beautiful, calm background for the windmill. The grey stonework complements nicely with the sky creating a calm atmosphere. The sails themselves are a wonderful shape, so delicate yet so large. It’s amazing how many floors there are, just look at all of the windows!

Beautiful Border

I really like this photo. The grass path draws your eye into the distance while the beautiful pinks, yellows and blues of the flowers in the border keep grabbing your attention along the way. The hedge to the right creates a nice border to the photo, it has been shaped so precisely. The texture that this adds to the photo is really effective. It’s so nice to take time out to look more closely at God’s wonderful creation and to really appreciate it. It is so easy to take it for granted.

Stunning Sun & Silhouettes

I love this picture, the sky is stunning, it reminds me of the song ‘Who paints the skies’ it’s so good to look upon God’s creation in it’s stunning beauty and to remember that he created it all, he has the power to do anything. The silhouettes in the distance are stunning, I like how these have lost their detail and how you can focus totally on the beauty of the sun.

Lakeside Library

The reflection of the library in the lake is stunning, I really like how the lights at the edge of the library add brightness to the photo and a little warmth to contrast with the coldness of the rest of the colours and the fact that when I took this photo it was so cold that the lake was beginning to freeze over.

Perfect Postbox

I really like this photo, I like the contrast between the red of the postbox and the whit snow, the vibrancy of the red really draws your attention. The snow is also well focused and gives the post box a nice texture.

Delightful Daisies

I love this photo, the daisies are beautiful, there are hundreds of them. The combination of pink and white daisies are delightful and soften the otherwise hard edges of the steps.

Stationary Swan Standing Still

That swan looks really scary as it stands stationary in the centre of the lawn, it clearly wants to stand still and protect its young. I tell you, trying to get past it was fun and games.
