What is "Gloriography?"

I've set out to capture God's glorious creation one day, one frame at a time. I've coined this "gloriography." I am therefore, I guess, a "gloriographer." And I take "gloriographs".

Not to take anything away from great photographers, but to whom belongs the "credit," the "cameraman" or the Creator? I believe we need to give credit to whom it is due. God gets all the photo credit in my book.

Fact is, taking photos of his glorious work is not difficult: "For since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made." Romans 1:19

Another reason I set out on this mission is that my job takes me to pristine private properties that are destined for development. I have the enviable opportunity to photograph what's there before it's not! So until I can travel with abandon (not to happen soon), I am buying up every opportunity to shoot that which I see on a day-to-day basis in beautiful Florida, or on occasional vacation trips, e.g. we've been to the southern Caribbean Islands, Alaska, Maine, Colorado Georgia, Mexico, the Grand Caymans, Arizona, North Carolina, Victoria, B.C. and Washington State. Up next, the Pacific Northwest and Canada, and possibly Cuba.

One last thing. You can buy a print from SmugMug, but I do not mark up my images. They are there for all to enjoy--of course if you pay the printer. This is my blog "Gloriographs".
