Mostly because I love thoroughness, I can get lost in the moment of whatever I find myself doing. Since I also love researching, a task many find tedious, I often notice small details. As a result, I love close-up photography. To me, the more details in a photo the better, especially when captured with pristine sharpness.
Today’s featured artist is a photographer and author whose images are often of the macro type, which I love so much.

On her website, Sweet Rains, Rene publishes thoughtful, encouraging posts and usually throws in her own photos to enhance the messages. In her About page, Rene describes her love of photography, but also for the Bible. Her messages reflect her love for the Lord, and she always stay grounded in Scripture.
Recently, Rene started something she calls Wisdom Wednesday. Weekly, she posts proverbs or other wisdom verses from the Bible, along with a comparable proverb or wise saying from a different culture. Throughout the ages, there have been wise sages, and we can often glean from them. However, what I have appreciated about these posts is how Rene very clearly shows that all wisdom stems from the God of the Bible.
