Just a quick post to tide us all over until I have more free time but I love the drama that tangled fx gave this photo! Hope you like it too! Be back to blogging ASAP!
John 14:1-31 (KJV)
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. 20At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. 21He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22[Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?] 23[Jesus answered and said unto him, ] If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent me. 25These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
Freedom under attack again! It's hard for me to comprehend why so many around the world and now even in our own land of the free have such a problem with the concept of freedom! But I thought this photo fit the occasion! The symbol of freedom looks around at freedom trampled underfoot and it makes him scream in frustration!
Here's another of my really old Instagram shots with a twist... An Ansel filter twist to be precise! It was a pretty good silhouette in color, but I really like it in this special bw filter! And the closest I could get to a tropical palm tree look was the giant ragweeds that grow profusely in my yard in the summer! They really get six feet tall as depicted here... This was a year when our tractor was broken down, for any of you who feel that a well manicured yard is next to Godliness! Lol!
It's strange how the same stand of trees can look so different depending on the lighting and weather conditions, how the colors of the sunset differ from season to season; and how we get caught up in the grind of daily living and never notice these things until we slow down on purpose and pay attention to the details!
I've been getting involved in some text and typography groups on Instagram lately and really enjoying it do I thought I would post a few examples here as well... Here's one style where I just add some fitting text to an existing photograph and add a new dimension to it! Kind of a greeting card poster feeling... I'm dabbling in different styles within the text and typography theme so be prepared to see more... I'm also experimenting with extreme edits trying to hone some graphic arts skills.. In the future I may post a few if them on here as well... Hope you like my new explorations! Feedback is always welcome!
Wow it's been quite some time since I posted or even had time to check my blog! My sincere apologies to any one who might have noticed... Lol! I'm going to try to do better and remember to post here at least three times a week! Any way here's a tangled sunrise as atonement! Thank you to any and all who still visit here! Sorry to abandon you to archives lately but you can keep busy for quite some time sifting through my past posts! HINT! Haha!☻❀
