[b&w photo taken with Nikon D40 at the Mountain Farm, Smoky Mountain National Park, Cherokee, NC, October, 2009.]
This Photo Friday looks up under the eaves of a 1800’s split-log cabin. Seeing this in black and white really makes the intricate geometries of line, vector and shape pop. (Click the photo for a larger view.)
Black and white photos are all about contrast. And I think this b&w photo is clean and serene in a way that must contrast with the dirt and difficulty of living off the land in the 1800’s.
This reminds me once again that life is average, only God is great. And what he has prepared for His children is great beyond imagination.
But not in this life…
And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
— The Apostle Paul in Romans 8:23-25
