This is an outdoor sculpture at the International Sculpture Park at Schaumburg, Illinois of infinite numbers 1 and 0, depicting the binary numbers of computing. What is this artist trying to say? The computer world is taking over and is controlling our everyday life?
This photo was taken in Taiwan this year, after the bus climb slowly up the hill we were dropped off at the bus stop and as I turned around and looked beyond the temple where the sea merges with the sky at the horizon. This photo reminds me even the idols seeks the beauty of God’s creation as people choose to place the idols at such location.
I remembered someone posted a very nice shot holding his or her eye glasses on a similar theme before. I picked this photo for “Good Morning” because a towel, a basin, and a water jug represent cleaning- no matter cleansing one’s face or someone’s feet. This photo reminds me a good morning means to live daily as Jesus Christ, a servant leader.
I did my wwwp5K in Chicago around Lake Michigan on Saturday with camera in hand because I wanted to do both challenges at the same time. I saw the skyline of Chicago is saturated with high rises. The park around the lake was saturated with wedding parties, there were many saturated colors on the bride’s mates’ dresses. I didn’t want to intrude with the professional photographers’ team in arranging the perfect poise, so I looked the other way and the saturated color of this man’s shirt caught my eye and here is my take on this week’s photo challenge.
Lines and patterns are basic techniques and elements to a good photography. I just look up from the bottom of this circular stair and here is my attempt to capture lines to patterns for this weekly photo challenge.
I was pondering should this photo be taken inside looking out or outside looking in. A verse came to mind: “Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.” (Matthew 23:27-28) Many things inside are not necessarily visible, like this church all I could do was trying to peek through a heart-shape window way up high. I only saw what seem to be stain glass inside. As a counselor, I have the privilege to tread inside some human hearts and minds, which cannot be photography, I saw brokenness and despair no matter what the outward appearance looks like.
