Welcome to my author & photography page.

My name is Ellen DuBois, and I've been writing since I can remember. I began writing poetry as a child and as I got older, my poems, stories, lyrics, etc., grew with me. Whenever I had to sort out my feelings, I turned to writing - and still do. Whether pen and paper, my old Smith-Corona typewriter I got for my high school graduation or my computer, writing has been a constant, faithful companion.

So has the hobby of taking pictures. I find photography to be an incredibly relaxing, spiritual experience. So, I've incorporated my picture taking into my blog. It's a part of me and what I see that I'd like to share with you.

Thank you, be well and God Bless! Ellen

Seeing God Through My Camera Lens

by Ellen DuBois on 10/25/18

I love to take pictures, especially of nature. If I'm out driving and I forget my camera, it's inevitable I'll see something "magical" and wish I had it. However, cell phones are a quick fix if there's something I just have to take a picture of.

But, I love my Nikon D5200 24.1 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera Body Only (Black) camera. (I put a link in there so you can check it out. There are newer models, but this is the one I have.)

There's something about changing lenses, lining up a shot, holding my camera that I love.

Nature is my inspiration and to me, nature comes from God. So, I see God in everything I take a picture of. It can be a tiny insect or flower to a majestic mountain or sunset. 

Taking pictures calms me. My focus is drawn to whatever the subject matter is. The rest of the world fades away as I try to get the best picture possible. Sometimes, (especially with birds), I miss the moment. However, that's part of the challenge and I find the entire experience relaxing and quite spiritual.

Taking pictures can be spiritual? Well, for me it is. Like I said, I tend to see God in everything, so when I'm focusing on a flower, sunset, the pond in my back yard, my dog, birds, a leaf, (you get the idea), I feel closer to God and experience a deep appreciation for His, (or Her), creations.

I don't need to be a professional photographer to enjoy it. I'm not. Most of us aren't . I simply take joy and find calm in seeing God through my camera lens.
