Foe-toss | LIGHT – Photography
“What is ‘Foe-toss’?” As it is written in the blog icon, it is Greek meaning “of light”. In the Greek it is the genitive, possessive case. We get our English word “Light” as well as “photo” from this Greek word “foe-toss”, literally telling us that the light and photos we experience through our sense of sight comes from light.
How can that be when something like light cannot reproduce itself? Good question. As I look at all of my surroundings and question how they came into being, the only logical explanation is that it was all made. Created by some awesome power, belonging to an intelligent Being able to set all of the creation that man has found so far in a magnificent order! There is a book written by a man named John in the first century that puts it very succinctly.
“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.” (1John 1:5)
Agreed a fantastic explanation, but probable. Definitely possible. Truth is always fantastic because so many falsehoods are spoken. Though we are not here to prove anything. This is why we believe that photography shows unlimited resource.
We hold ourselves to a high standard of photography and constantly pursue learning. Learning should not stop or the effective creativity of the photographer will diminish.
