Friday is for Photos

Phriday is for fotos. Or something like that. At any rate, you can find some excellent and interesting photographs from various younger bloggers on Fridays. Check out the work of Joe Thorn, Steve McCoy and Timmy Brister.

In another life I used to be something of a shutterbug, myself. It was back in the days when cameras used this strange celluloid substance that came in little canisters that we actually inserted into our cameras. It was called film. You younger guys have probably read about it in history books.

On another thread, Timmy made this kind overture:
Oh, and Tom, you are officially the photog emeritus of the Friday photo community (at least in my book). Now let's see some Friday photos!
Well, I guess since I am emeritus that means that I can get away with using the photography of others. So, I will start with a shot taken out the back window of my house by my daughter, Rebecca, last year. The quality is affected by the glass and screen, but I still think the shot is great. In the summer months we receive some of the highest volume of lightning strikes per square mile to be found anywhere in the world. This particular storm was very dramatic. You can see our roof line as well as the pine trees that stand about 20 feet behind the house.

As much as it pained me, I joined the digital camera craze. I thought it was a fad that would pass, but it did not.

The technology still frightens and confuses me since I'm just a caveman, but ... it has revolutionized my photographic world.

I love it and rue the days of not having one.

So he took me seriously . . .

Rue? I didn't think cavemen knew how to rue.

Nice photo. I love lightning pics.

I like the way lightning looks...from a VERY healthy distance! So looking at pictures far removed from my actual location is even better. Seriously though, the awesome lightning displays such as this one remind me of the following verse.

Romans 1:20
For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Surely this is by divine design?

Oh, and Darel, by the way: being a fellow caveman to the gentleman who posted first, have you ever wondered why people ever lived in caves in the first place? I bet lightning displays such as this one heavily influenced that decision! :)

Darel said...

I think people lived in caves because they were on the run from the king, or maybe some wicked evil woman....
