Through a Glass Darkly

"For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." - 1 Corinthians 13:12 (King James Version)
This quote just seemed to fit the imperfect view of sky through a window.

And in this scene... well, to go with the Biblical quote, maybe I've seen the Light!

  1. I love the window shot where the cloud is ready to gulp down the moon. Outstanding.

  2. "then shall I know, even as I am also known." If you think about it, you can apply that to the friends and information we get through blogging.
    Both photos are superb for different reasons. Well done.

  4. Both really wonderful shots!
    I really like the first one and it's perspective. The placement of the coffee cup made it unique. :)

  10. Fantastic shots Janie. The second one with the light coming through the trees, is stunning. But then that first one is a super one too, and I love it.

  14. The coffee cup is a nice touch, obviously you drank some before you took the pretty pictures!

  15. It's often overlooked that the Bible plays an inescapable role cannon of western literature, so many allusions spring from it, even in Shakespeare ... and then down the line from there. Not many books either could you spend your entire life studying and seeking inspiration and solace from, and never quite get to the bottom of the mysteries.

    Oh, and great shot of the moon. (I'm assuming that's the same one I see here in Florida? Only a guess!)

  20. Hi Janie

    I think you have been 'touched by the light' to bring us such shots. Thanks

    Happy days

  21. Did you say, "imperfect sky?"

    Disagree! Infact Janie, it is most beautiful with Corinthian verse to go with it!

    It's rather creative the way you framed the sky using your window frame. Cute actually. :)

    Ah yes, I see the light behind the tree too!

  22. Interesting captures, especially the first. Provacative.

  23. Both the shots are so amazing... Esp I love the visibility of moon in the Ist shot and the play of sunlight in the second shot...
