“Friendship,” said Christopher Robin, “is a very comforting thing to have.”
In these uncertain times, photography has helped whisk me to a place of peace and comfort.
Even with all that has been going on in the world, I have managed to
create an image a week for the 52Frames project I started at the beginning of the year.
Last week, the challenge to photograph was books. During the week, I had the opportunity to create images at my church. These images would be included in remote services that would take place while gathering at the church was not possible. While photographing in the church, I was drawn to these hymnals and the light that shone on them.
For me, these books and the light upon them were a reminder to seek my faith for comfort.
Last week, the challenge was to create an image that represents a line from a song.
For the past two weeks, I have been on a journey, along with friends and fellow educators at my school, to learn to teach first grade using the computer from home. Much time has been spent learning how to use technology to reach students. Many online meetings with fellow educators have taken place.
It was during one of these meetings, that the thought for my week’s image came to me.
Although we are having to learn things quickly as we reinvent the way we deliver instruction, I realized that I would be able to manage with the help from my friends. I am so thankful to have such supportive, caring and hardworking coworkers. I will not only get by, but will thrive in this new “world” with the help from my friends.
