 “Throughout the universe the divine power is effulgent in endless images and pictures. The world of creation, the world of humanity may be likened to the earth itself and the divine power to the sun.”
-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Compilation, Baha’i World Faith

This month’s Nineteen month’s contribution.

I was so inspired by this trip to Boonah.  Can you believe these images were all taken from a moving car?

No I wasn’t driving!  We had just been to the most wonderful devotional meeting hosted by a dear friend.

People from several nationalities in the small town of Boonah 100 kilometres from Brisbane had gathered for prayer and meditation on the concept of fellowship.

We shared prayers from world religions, music, fellowship, and learnt a little more about each other.

We left to go home and the setting sun was glorious, and we had another meeting to get to.  I so longed to stop but luckily I was able to take a few images from our car.

This moving sun felt like the continual blessing of the devotional meeting we had just been to.

Ah the metaphor of sun – divine power – divine blessing.

When Mum Came to Visit

Me and Mum
Taken by my niece – me and Mum.

 

When Mum came to visit, I had the opportunity to photograph her educating her granddaughter, bubu, in culture.

She visited, from Tasmania where she now lives, to assist her with an art project.

This ended up inspiring my Nineteen months contribution – Asma.

“Hearken ye to the Call of this wronged One, and magnify ye the name of the one true God, and adorn yourselves with the ornament of His remembrance.”
-Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah

Hearkening to the call; she looks away from the camera. Praising the name of God; she does the best with learning from her grandmother. Adorning herself with symbols of culture; she remembers the unity of humanity in all its diversity.

 

As well as this I began a series of photographs on the transmission of culture.

A special thanks to my mum and daughter for inspiring my life and photography.
