This series has been very refreshing for me. As a mother and wife, it is difficult for me to venture to the places that, photographically, create iconic images. What do I mean by iconic images? Take a look at the work of John Steele, who lives in Seoul. If I had the time and resources, perhaps I too could take photos like his; I live only an hour and a half away. Alas, photographing landscapes and cityscapes as John does is beyond my reach.
By aspiring to photograph the iconic without the talent, time or resources to do so, I’ve allowed myself to stagnate. Within Walking Distance challenges me to find inspiration close by. Do you find yourself in the same situation? Pick up your camera and walk out the front door!
The photos below were taken last night from a pedestrian bridge just down the road. The streets may not be of Seoul, but they are nonetheless beautiful to me!
In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Proverbs 16:9
Within Walking Distance is a series which will highlight what I come across as I venture out into God’s creation. The series challenges me to find inspiration close by, as travel is not always possible. More importantly, through my photography I will become a witness to His splendor as well as to what we’ve done with it. These photos will represent the environment that God has placed me in – reality rather than grandeur – but instead of illustrating the mundane, I intend to make plain the Creator.
