In The Wait

February 22, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Tonight I found a few minutes to slip out on the back deck and gaze with the camera. It takes great patience to capture the drama of darkness- and a bit of luck. It's almost too much for my ADD to handle. I shot a few frames, each about 20-30 second exposures, then came inside, to find my final image. Nothing serious, just playing around. Then, as I gazed closely into all 72 megapixels of the file, I found myself intrigued at the beauty beyond what could be seen with the naked eye. I had focussed on a tree on our property, but found the stars and a hint of moving clouds to accompany the night- none of it seen outside of the camera. In the wait, something beautiful came to light. It was always there, even when you didn't know it- it just took waiting to come to light. We have been taught a thing or two about waiting in this adoption process. 

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
