uncommon commonality

Octamom posted some pics of her morning stroll with the twins to depict the beauty that surrounds us daily, that we often take in and eventually take for granted. I try to always have a camera nearby to catch the uncommon commonality of our beautiful world.

Here are some shots I have taken. Some were with my handy digital. Some were with my trusty Canon AE-1 35mm old school film camera. It is over 20 years old and still captures the beauty wonderfully.

Taken on a side road between Lexington and Winchester .. 'Whispering Giants" (Canon)

On Yorkshire in Lexington (digital)

We are surrounded by such wonderful works of the hand of God. Enjoy his canvas today.

We do take for granted the beauty around us! Thanks for the reminder. BTW, your camera (both of them) take wonderful pictures.

The glory of the Lord is around us if we only would look...

' Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?” '
John 11:40

Wonderful photos.
