Good Morning Lenspiration!
This week, we need photos that fit 2 Corinthians 5:17, 21:
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new… For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Your submitted photos will be used as a background to the verse as part of our VersePics Ministry, and in this VPO, while it is kind of a difficult thing to ask for in the Fall, but I would love some photos of “new” life… This could be young or new animals, plants, or even people! I don’t want to more specific than that, as it is Fall and I want to be realistic in not alienating all options! You may already need to look into your libraries rather than shoot for this occasion…
This VP is going to be very special to us, so I’m looking for the very best that you have! 🙂
Full details on submission rules, the RAW submission link (the DFR), what the images will be used for, and everything else will be found here.
Thank you for your support in this ministry!

Very nice, thanks for participating @photog_love!
On a logistical note, did it only allow you to upload 2 photos at a time?October 20, 2017 at 6:09 pm #26338Frazer FamilyParticipant
Now this is my field! I love shooting baby animals and do quite a bit of it, though I’m certainly not a professional at it yet. Just which ones of my hundreds of photos should I submit…? 🙂
On a logistical note, does it only allow you to upload 2 photos at a time?
That’s all it will allow me to submit at a time (unless I trick it).
@bensharpeningcharacter, if you end up wanting one of them, I can send the RAW file.

I appreciate the idea of the verse pics as I believe it’s helpful for folks to keep the Lord’s Word before their face and meditate on it. I haven’t submitted pictures for this before but these verses in 2 Corinthians 5 have meant so much to me that I thought I would submit some pictures.
The first picture was one that I took years ago before I really knew much of anything about photography (I borrowed someone’s camera to take the picture.) I actually took the picture with verse 17 of 2 Corinthians 5 in mind. The picture is of an empty cocoon and you can see a butterfly “flying” away in the background. The cocoon is not in as sharp focus as I would like but when I was taking this shot I knew very little about photography and I still have a lot to learn.
The cocoon pictures old things being passed away and the butterfly pictures all things being new. The butterfly is not really an improved catapulter but rather it is a new creature. It’s the same way for us as believers. God’s goal is not to improve us or make us better but rather His desire is to take us by way of the cross and make us brand new! We become the righteousness of God IN Him! Hallelujah!
The other picture was one I took as I walked by a cornfield in Gettysburg. The stalks were harvested and the field had a bunch of broken brown stalks. But then in this brown field there was these bright yellow corn kernels which represented the new life that would come in the spring after the kernels fall into the ground and die. The stark contrast between the yellow corn and the brown dirt caught my eye and so I snapped a picture of it. I also thought the little green plant that appears to be sprouting in the background pictures new life. The way to new life for the believer is through death.
Thank you all for using photography to help people mediate on the Word!October 21, 2017 at 11:40 am #26353Benjamin HolmesModerator
Fantastic submissions coming in, and it’s always great to see some “new” faces submitting! 😉 And yes, those baby animals and bunnies are TOO cute! 😄 Two or three days left till the deadline, depending on how you look at it, and I’m already really looking forward to creating this VP!October 22, 2017 at 2:18 pm #26367October 22, 2017 at 3:29 pm #26369

Wow, fantastic submissions! I ran across this subject the other day, and inspired by @rejoiceevermore’s photo, decided I’d pull out my phone (the only camera I had on me) and snap a similar concept image of my own.

If I’ve converted from Australian time to American time correctly, I think I can still enter! 🙂 Hopefully I’m not to late.
It’s spring here, so it’s the perfect time to shoot pictures for this verse! I thought blossoms would be a good subject as they symbolise new life. I don’t know if a lot of my pictures will work for a verse in the centre but, as you’re a graphic designer you might see something that I can’t. 🙂
I also took a picture of seeds. I thought that might work, too. Anyway, here are some of the pictures I submitted via Dropbox.
