Through my recent participation in BME photography project in Derry/Londerry I have been inspired to take photographs from various perspectives. I have also started looking at photographs through a view new lenses.
In the meantime I have discoverd Visio Divina.......... to continue my photographic journey I planned to explore comtemplative photography (as described here http://www.ttlcommunity.com/#!visio-divina/c8k2) and practice Visio Divina
How to Practice Visio Divina
Explore the image.
Look at everything within the frame – objects, patterns, shapes,
textures, lines, light, and colors. Look deeper. Where are your eyes drawn? Engage your
imagination. What do you see? What do you smell? What relationships do you notice?
Allow the image to lead you into a time of prayer. Silently, offer prayers to God of gratitude,
anguish, confession, or praise – whatever you find stirring inside you. Breathe deeply and
slowly. Rest in this quiet, being open to God’s presence within you.
If your mind wanders,
do not worry, look at the image again, or bring an awareness of the image into your mind.
Be gentle with yourself and have no expectations of grand revelations. The point is to
practice and to offer quiet time to be attentive to God’s presence.
What do you see?
Where do you see God?
Pray with/over image.
