My iTunes: Hope to Carry On (live version) by Caedmon's Call

This post is for a friend. A dear friend...

"I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from the mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and the mountains."
Psalm 121:1

I snapped this at the train station as I wandered up through the tunnel. Looking at it, I am reminded of journeys that we are all on in this life and how I am in desperate need of a Savior to make it through each second. He is my light in the darkness...my hope in despair.

My strength when I am weak.

I miss you and I'm sorry we are so far apart these days...
hopefully we can see eachother soon.

That's beautiful Anna. And my favorite psalm. Hope your friend can find the strength she needs right now in our Savior.

Great use of leading lines. Maybe you could burn out the light area at the top center of the frame so all attention goes to the opening at the top of the stairs. I like the tones too.

Mike said...

This is great Anna. Wonderful verse to go with it.

That light makes me want to walk up those stairs!

Carmi said...

You've inspired me to pull a similarly-themed image out of my Shanghai archives. I've always loved the way stairs that emerge from the underground can fill with light.

Yet another great capture, supported by equally great words.

Captured perfectly! Certainly drew me in. Thanks for diving head-first into your surroundings. We have recently transplanted and the adjustment really caught me off guard. Your blog is encouraging to me and has me looking at my new world through different eyes. Keep posting!
