Eyes to See


This week’s photography homework had the options of shooting two out of three items: a bench, a fire hydrant and a monument. I took a lot of photos of colourful hydrants against the snow and tried to find one of the painted mural ones to no avail. I shot a wonderful photo of the monument to honour Nellie McClung. I took several benches and liked them. I decided to go shopping. I saw the clean benches without any snow as I walked towards one of the stores and then I saw this: icicles dripping off a bench arm. I spotted it from afar and thought this was the photo that could make the difference. Sometimes we just need eyes to see.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
