Contemplative Vision: Photography As a Spiritual Practice
Your digital camera (or smart phone) can be a window to wonder and God.
Did you know that your digital camera (or smart phone) can be a window to wonder and God? With the advent of digital photography and the widespread use of camera-equipped smart phones, we have all become photographers. The same technology that makes the upload of selfies can also function as a tool for quiet contemplation. Indeed, the practice of contemplative photography invites people of faith to set aside distractions of contemporary life. This enables them to view the world through the eyes of the divine and uncover the ex-traordinary in the ordinary.
