This morning I went out with my camera and decided I wanted some pictures.

Just what kind, I did not know. 

Then I noticed the Iris with little water droplets all over the petals 
(courtesy of my sister and the hose).

I looked closer and I saw many little things that I usually didn't notice.

Aren't all the detail in God's creation amazing?
He did not neglect even the smallest fuzz on a hen-and-chicks.

What a wonderful God we have!
"God sees the little sparrow fall, It meets His tender view;
If God so loves the little things, I know He loves me too.

He paints the lily of the field, Perfumes each lily bell;
If He so loves the little flow'rs, I know he loves me well.

God made the little birds and flow'rs, And all things large and small;
He'll not forget His little ones, I know he loves them all.

He loves me too, He loves me too, I know He loves me too;
Because He loves the little things, I know He loves me too."
-Maria Straub



  1. Those are gorgeous photos, William! I especially love the flowers close up, and the drop of water. Surely a God that gives attention to such intricacies is qualified to care for every detail of my little life. And surely such a Lover of beauty will not rest until my heart too is His beautiful dwelling place...

  2. WOW! I'm so happy I came across your blog (or rather you came across mine first). I love the photos!! May I ask what lens you used to shot the close-ups? By the way if you ever start selling your photography drop me a line (that is if it's not to expensive).

    @Sean: I like the thought!!

  3. For close ups I use my Mom's Sigma 50mm Macro lens. Thanks to my mom's generosity I can get in real close.

  4. Is is a fixed focus or a zoom lens?

  5. Beautiful! Your words and pictures come at just the time I am needing God to direct in details and plans. Thank you for reminding me, with such simple yet profound beauty, that my heart is in capable hands.

  6. God is amazing, how He designed every little line on flower and leaves and every little drop of water. How He created the seasons and made everything so beautiful, with us in mind....

  7. These pictures are gorgeous! I love the detail in those close ups!

  8. @Emily: It is a fixed focus. Just so you know, my camera is only 11 mega-pixels, I don't know if you're still interested.

  9. William, your nature photos are fantastic! I have enjoyed the very much! Thank you for sharing.


I would love to hear your thoughts.
