Capturing the Not-So-Otherworldly Mysticism of John Muir and Pope Francis — 2 Comments

  1. A wonderful lesson!

    When the virus crisis began, my friend the historian and SF writer Ada Palmer suggested on Twitter that we start posting something nice in our timelines to remind us of the good in the world, under the hashtag #SomethingBeautiful so I started digging through my old photos… not realizing that I might need half a year or more of them to post.

    Meanwhile, with the heat of Tucson ramping up, I renewed my habit of going for a walk at sunrise (the coolest part of the day). With my little cell phone camera I started noticing the everyday beauty around me, sunrise and clouds and the neighborhood bathed in the eerie pink light of sunrise. It’s beauty that’s always been there but I never bothered to notice until I had the task of finding #SomethingBeautiful every day.

    Photography, even without fancy equipment, is a great way of training your eye to see what’s in front of your nose all the time.

    • Great response Guy! And stay safe! Arizona is such a Covid-19 firestorm right now. I’m glad to hear you’re finding ways to decompress while staying safe! Keep imaging creation with your smartphone! It’s amazing what those little things can do!
