Introducing GLC Photography

Since a member of church kindly lent me their DSLR back in October 2016, I have fallen in love with photography again. I still like my smart phone camera but it can’t hold a candle to the quality you get with a DSLR. Sorry Iphone but you’re still useful in other ways.

My internal monologue pushes me to seek perfection, however elusive that might be,  and it is no different with photography. It offers me a purer form of creativity that my writing doesn’t always offer me. Capturing that moment, recording incredible beauty fills me with joy, and I want to share the love.

So www.glcphotography.co.uk is born, It is a place for my best photos so feel free to take a look, as well consider purchasing them as prints, physical or download, canvases photo books etc, downloads are 99p. I take photos across six categories Animals, Urban, NatureSeasonal, Faith and Stock. All products are shipped through Loxley Colour which is based in Glasgow.

 

So the blog godlifechurch has expanded to include glcphotography they are kindred spirits, of creativity that keep me sane in the dual pressures of life and ministry. Enjoy and please share.

 

 

 

 

 

Whose Signed Your Selfie?

Click, the camera takes the photo, the latest collection of selfies on mondays Selfie day were just like the millions of others taken recently, everyone had a smile and looked generally happy. We don’t know their back grounds, hopes or worries, but for that moment there is a smile, an inviting look. The photos themselves cause me to sometimes reciprocate with a smile, but that might just be me!

When we post such photos on Facebook or stick it in an album we can tag ourselves in the photo in some way, so people know its us. Similarly artists sign there works as away of showing that they painted or drew it.

Before the beginning of all things there was probably a conversation that might have started a little like this:

God the Father: “Shall we make something together?”

So together they created worlds, stars, space, atmosphere, deep waters, rolling hills and snowy peaks and of course much more. Like the great artists God has signed his creation, a signature we see in selfies alongside our own names. A signature we see in our highest motivations and goals, our collective physiology, and in our welcoming smiles.

So today as you click that selfie, walk past a mirror or catch yourself looking back in a reflective surface, remember who you are a reflection of, and whose signature is also on your life and others. If you feel so inclined, thank God. Or perhaps make amends with the person you saw as less than having Gods signature upon their lives.

The Selfie tells a story, may it remind you that you are made in Gods Image, worthy of at least a smile a day, of being continually loved, respected and cherished, if not at least as much as God loves and cherishes you, the pinnacle, the cherry on the top, the bright star of all of Gods creation.

Have a great day 🙂
