My 13 favourite photos

I was given a camera for my 40th, I have posted loads of photos here. Thought I would post my own top 13!!!!!. Slightly egotistical I know. I have thought about getting more serious with it. If you click on the snap you can see the big version of it, they are in no particular order.

1. Loved the spider, love the idea of webs, interconnectedness, relational webs....

2. People are beautiful, even with make up! God didn't screw up when he made you.

3. Old and new, bikes and doors, I think this captures a Mediterranean vibe.

4. I like messy faith.

5. Sunsets declare His glory.

6. I like grey just as much as I like blue.

7. Although blue is more cheerful.

8. This one reminds of some lines from Dante's Inferno, the steps coming out of the ominous water:"To get back up to the shining world from there My guide and I went into that hidden tunnel, And Following its path, we took no care To rest, but climbed: he first, then I-so far, through a round aperture I saw appear Some of the beautiful things that Heaven bears, Where we came forth, and once more saw the stars."

9. Es Vedra is a beautiful granite rock, I love the shifting light, the dark the blue and the fact that the rock never moves. It speaks to me on immutability.

Same rock, almost love this photo more than the first one, although my camera hood is showing in two corners!

10. My friend Alain got married to Rachel this year, after losing his first wife, this shot reminds me of Hosea, "For he has wounded us but he will heal us"

11. I love clear blue skies and this shipwreck. Faded glory. This washed up fishing boat reminds me of some churches!

12. I enjoy lines, perspective and looking at things from different angles.

13. Heres one I think I could do better, although I love deterioration and rust.
