This is a public display of the photography of Matt DeVore, an amateur photographer tinkering in the Wooster and Ashland, Ohio area. I label my photography, Visions of Rapture. Why the name "Visions of Rapture?" I had been sharing my photos on my personal Facebook profile. A lot of people were praising my work and suggesting I do more with it. I thought it would be worthwhile to set up Facebook page as a more public space. I had to think of a name and Visions of Rapture came to me pretty quickly. Literally, Visions refers to the things seen in the photographs and Rapture (joy or happiness) is what I and others feel when we see them. But if you’re familiar with hymns then you’ll recognize that I lifted the title from the lyrics of Blessed Assurance by Fanny J. Crosby. While this ongoing collection of photos is not intended as a gospel sermon, I do believe that our Creator endows us with the ability to appreciate beauty and much of what I enjoy photographing is His handiwork. -Matt DeVore

Colorized Barn

It was -13 F on my drive in to work this morning. I stopped my vehicle and captured this barn with my Canon T2i/550D. I processed it on the iPad using Google Snapseed creating a B&W image. Then I processed it with DistressedFX to reintroduce color and add texture.

“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?”
