When I think of the word creation, my first thought is not of those things that I create but of God’s creation. Now putting all of that into a one photograph is a bit difficult and even if a photograph including the night sky might hint at something, night skys are very disappointing in the middle of a city.
But then I thought of the poem by William Blake (the first few lines of “Auguries of Innocence”)
Where he writes:
“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
So I will try to capture the wonder of the whole of creation in an image of just a tiny part of it. Just look at the amazing detail in the humble spider.
I have never been able to take a really good photograph of a spider’s web but this is maybe the best one. After all this too is a creation – of a spider!
