The Bible

Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Thanks, Pete, Bob, and Cindy! I went to a couple of antique stores in Monroe (next city down the road... I live in a village!) and found the candle holder, the old spectacles, and my greatest joy was this antique family Bible, dated 1875! I messed up on titling this Psalm 22, I really meant Psalm 23 and I'll hopefully rectify that tonight.

A great old bible with all the notes and margins and the methaphore of light and glasses for seeing the thruth - a remarkable shot

Great composition... I assume that all of the light is
coming from the candle given the long exposure.

Very powerful image, Jim (on many levels). Nicely composed.
