Converging Lines

Faith. Technology. The interconnection made possible by power, communication and transportation grids. They have come together in exciting and challenging ways in the current age. They have produced much anxiety and yet have the potential to bring us peace and comfort.

I saw these lines in the sky behind the steeple of Zion Lutheran Church. As I worked with the photo I saw God's hand in the symmetry of the lines, the power of the sunlight and the colors of the sky. The cross of Jesus rises above it all and balances the equation, bringing the composition into perspective.

My treatment of the image attempted to bring out the simplicity of vision that allows us to see God's hand at work in the world around us whether our view is of natural scenery or frames the product of technology and man's footprint in our environment. God is present in all of these.
