The Flow of Moments


A photograph is nothing more than evidence of a moment that once existed. It's putting your hand in the continually flowing stream of moments and cupping some of that precious water in your hand.

Every once in a while, that captured moment can be revisited and provide inspiration and insight into the current cascade of moments I am experiencing. I share them with you in hopes that you too may find something that will help you navigate the waters.

This photograph is of my daughter, taken at Cave Point in Door County, Wisconsin. Cave Point features low shelves of limestone along the shore where the waves wash over. I used a slow shutter speed to capture the movement of the waves over the stone and instructed my daughter to stay as still as she could for the half-second exposure.

The result for me is a photo of one pausing to contemplate life as the moments rush by.

Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over me. By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me- a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:7-8

This is a beautiful time exposure. I love the undulation of the waves creating an ethereal landscape with the sole person stopping for that time.
