Photo Show 2015
In the spring of 2015, Colorado Episcopal Service Corps used 35 mm film cameras to look at the world with a different lens. We asked the questions: “Where do you see God? “and “How do you think God sees the world?” We each had only 27 exposures. In this era of cameras on our phones and other digital photography when we snap photos without much thought we practiced paying attention, being selective and then waiting for the film to be developed to see the results. This calendar features the best of each roll along with the artists’ statements of what they were thinking when they took the photo.
Please pre-order your calendars now! We will have them printed in time to make lovely Christmas gifts. To pre-order, contact The Reverend Canon Rebecca Crummey at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 303-837-1173.
$20 for one and $15 each for orders of 2 or more.
This is my favorite time of day, when the light makes shadows before night falls. This picture encompasses everything that is life-giving to me: laughter, friendship, and God's light shining through the people I love. -Megan Cox
I took this photo because I wanted to artistically capture the love and support I have felt from the Colorado Episcopal Service Corps. and more specifically these women. This year has thrown many obstacles my way and these individuals have offered me an immense amount of love, encouragement, and support. They have only done what community should always do. -Kristen Henry
This sign directed me to the first hike I took in Steamboat Springs when I joined Colorado Episcopal Service Corps. In setting out on a new adventure, it comforted me to know that others had gone before me and marked the way. It seems like an apt symbol for anyone stepping into something new. Each journey is unique, but there is always someone who has walked the path before you and is willing to point the way. -Catie Greene Robertson
During a hike in Grand County Colorado, I stumbled across some old rusted out vehicles on an abandoned homestead. I have always been fascinated by broken down old things and how beautiful they can be. I imagine this is how God sees us: broken down and beautiful.
The world that God has created is brimming with creativity and color. When I see paint, I think of God the artist who loves us, His incredibly messy masterpieces. His grace covers us when our paints have blurred into ugly and unnamed colors and His mercy remains even when the canvas is misshapen and torn. Surely, He is an artist who loves His masterpieces through the mess. -Weslie Detwiler
I love that birds travel together while experiencing different weather patterns, environments, and views . This picture resembles God traveling with us along our life journey and being with us everyday. -Kristi Smith
This door is one that I pass often on my walks around our neighborhood. I took this photo after a series of snowy days, and the bright yellow door reminded me to be expectant and hopeful of the new life God brings with the Spring. -Anna Holleman
I am thankful for the vast array of creatures God has created for our planet. As I sat by the lake, two geese were walking in my direction. As we gazed at each other, I was filled with excitement and love: love for animals, nature, and that present moment. -Kristi Smith
This photo was taken on a bus ride home, with an attempt to see the outside world from inside the vehicle. The contrast of the darkness of the bus with the light outside was a big element of the photo that I aimed for here. I was trying to capture a beautiful moment that is provided by God that we often do not notice. a quick glance of the world outside going past that we so often miss or bother to notice. -Michael Mazzarella
I took this photo on a perfect January afternoon at Cathedral Ridge. I grew up in the Midwest where we did not get blue skies like this in the winter so I am always amazed at how crisp and blue the sky can be in Colorado, even in January. I got down in the grass to take the photo because we always think of God looking down from the sky at us, but what if God is looking up through the grass at the world, and marveling in the beauty and wonder of it all? -Rebecca Crummey
