Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated ~ Jewels

Colorful trade beads I found at a market while in Africa

Saturated is the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge.  The concept is a photo saturated with color.

I found these colorful trade beads while visiting Africa years ago.  They would make lovely jewelry, but I have never strung them.

I had a little fun shooting the picture above.  I wanted the beads to look like they were floating in the sky, so I shot them placed on a mirror and made sure the reflection included the clouds.  The colors in the beads popped nicely and the mirror gave them a doubled look; hence, saturated with color twice over!

 Jewels are not necessarily diamonds.  They can come in all shapes and sizes. 
When I think of jewels, it reminds me of how God views His children.

God created us each uniquely.  After becoming His children, though, God calls us jewels.  To Him, we are like a colorful assortment of beauty, saturated by the presence of Jesus in our lives.

They shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, on the day that I make them my jewels.
Malachi 3:17

        Aww, thank you, Sue. Photography is, indeed, enjoyable, especially when photographing things, places, and people we love. I still have sooo much to learn and appreciate your input and the inspiration of your photos and words, too. 🙂

      Thanks Wendy. These photo challenges are an outreach. I pray they touch lives with God’s truth and bless with images of His beauty. I admit that I had fun with the picture of the beads on the mirror! Blessings, friend.
