It’s been too long since I last held my camera to actually shoot something that’s not spontaneous. It really is such a blessing that it happened, and I have my good ol’ friend Teki to thank for inviting me to join. :)
This shoot made it possible for me to reconnect with two things: my camera, and somebody I least expected… God. Because of what Zeus, one of the photographers, shared with us, I got to realize a lot of things. I realized I’d forgotten about Him, how I’m never really alone even though that’s how I feel most of the time, because He’s always there. I’m never really unloved because He’s always there to make me feel loved. And for the longest time, I’d forgotten that.
Because of all this, I now see my camera as a symbol. I experienced this whole going-back-into-photography thing almost simultaneously with my going-back-to-God. Yes that’s one thing.
Another sweeter thing I’d come to understand is this: Through my camera’s viewfinder, as well as through God, I see a more beautiful world. :)
