Invitation to Photography: Kinship with Creation

Welcome to the Abbey Photo Party!

I select a theme and invite you to respond with images.

Our theme here at Abbey of the Arts for December is kinship with creation, so I invite you to reflect visually on your own sense of connection with the natural world.  What wisdom does nature offer to your life?

You can share images you already have, but I encourage you also to go for a walk with the theme in mind and see what you discover.

How to participate:

1. Go to the Flickr Group I have created. You need a free Flickr account first.  When you go to the link it will ask you to join the group first before posting.  Share as many as five of your images in response to the theme.

2. Leave a comment below to let us know you have joined the party and what your Flickr profile name is (this is essential to be entered into the prize drawing).

3. Please post the invitation on your blog or Facebook page and encourage others to come join the party!

On Sunday, December 9th– I will draw a name at random from those who participate and the winner will receive a space in one of my Self-Study Online Classes (with a choice from Soul of a Pilgrim, Eyes of the Heart, Water Wind Earth & Fire, Seasons of the Soul, or Lectio Divina)

  1. I’ve just joined the group and have uploaded three photos. My Flickr name is redbellfarm434. The photos are part of a group that I took of fall reflections in the river that runs by my house. The reflections remind me of Impressionist paintings and seem to symbolize one way to be in kinship with Creation…through artists’ concepts of what Creation looks like. I loved viewing everyone’s contributions!

  2. I have loved viewing the photos offered this month.They are all beautiful gifts. My flicker name is Debbie Peace.

  3. Posted my Flickr photo offerings as AaltoJaeger. Will enjoy the digital contemplation, along with a mug of hot tea.
