This Crazy World
Why do I take photographs? What difference does it make whether I share my pictures? The world just seems crazy these days with war, shootings in a church, and hatred everywhere!
I am reminded of the following quote:
Love people even in their sin, for that is the semblance of Divine Love and is the highest love on earth. Love all of God’s creation, the whole and every grain of sand of it. Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light. Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love.
Fyodor Dostoevsky - The Brothers Karamazov
So why do I shoot? Perhaps through my photos, people will see the beauty in the world - they will begin to "love every leaf, every ray of God's light". Perhaps then, they will start to love the world with an all-embracing love and this craziness will end.
And this would be just one of the many reasons that I love you.
