For the camera clubs Gimmie Your Best Shot theme of “pathways” for the May meeting, I thought of rows and rows of library books, a parade of ants and the rhododendron cave over a path somewhere near Pink Beds. The only one I shot for the theme this year, which is a requirement, was the Hendersonville Public library other than the few at Biltmore. The one below is my favorite but it’s not from this year. The shot from the library was outside of my comfort zone, having my camera out around people that are not other photographers. Animals and nature almost never give you “that look” when a camera is pointed in their direction. I get it though – I don’t like my picture taken either. I had plans to do a long exposure so the people were unrecognizable in motion but they told me when I asked permission that no one could be in the photo so I walked till I found a row with a window at the end and no people.
More than any photo could convey, I am most grateful to know that Jesus gift of salvation is the ultimate pathway!
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Matthew 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
Photo tip: The glass on my Hoya polarizing filter had begun to rattle in the frame. A fellow photographer on a hike told me there was a way to make it tight again but she couldn’t remember what you did other than maybe using rubber bands. I came home and Googled it and low and behold it was a very easy fix but in my case, it required an open paper clip end from the instructions I found and used. I found this afterward but it’s not the directions I followed. The CPL filter had a small hole points on the inner ring that I put the end of the clip in and turned it and wa-la it was fixed.
