Healing Hands Photography Exhibit

Yesterday was the last day of the Healing Hands exhibit which I blogged about when I was taking the photos. Here are some pictures of what it looked like when it was up.

"My love of photography began over 30 years ago when my high school geometry teacher encouraged me to take photos for the yearbook. Perhaps she knew already then that my aptitude for math would grow into a passion for finding beauty and symmetry in the chaos of everyday life through photography. I bought my first Canon 35mm camera when I was 16 and have been a “Canon girl” ever since. Through the years, I have carried my Canon to capture some of the shining moments in this blessed, fleeting life because I believe that photographs can help us remember this blessedness in our times of forgetfulness and doubt.

My greater hope is to show glimpses of God’s glory and to affirm His beauty in people and in the world. When presented with the idea for the “Healing Hands” project, I was excited about the opportunity to show the larger picture of how we are all connected and how we are all striving to praise the Great Creator through our work, and that no matter what we do for Him here at Pine Rest, we are part of the mission to provide Jesus’ healing to our patients. I hope in some way to have captured some of that beauty. Thank you to all for lending me your hands!"-Julia Smilde

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.
