Through a spiritual lens


I came across this photograph the other day while searching for new images for greeting cards. For me, the image summed up our hectic lives today, and the title, "A quick thought," sprang to mind. What happened to letting life just happen, I wondered? We are always rushing about the place with too much to do and too little time to do it in. We can no longer find the time to write a letter to a friend or relative to say thank you, express an idea, share an experience, or just say hi. It's a scribbled note instead.

Ironically, in order to capture the movement of time and pace in such an image, it's necessary photographically to slow the picture-taking process right down and literally let life pass by the camera.
