What If God Was One of Us
































































If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question
And yeah , God is great yeah , God is good

If God had a face what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in Jesus and the Saints and all the Prophets
What if god was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home
Like a Holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
Except for the Pope maybe in Rome...

Joan Osborne / What If God Was One of Us lyrics

Cindy Ellison said...

Really liked this post. The thought of being kind to everyone comes to mind, lest we "entertain angels unawares".

Victor Mihiş said...

de-a dreptul înfiorător!... tu pui într-o singură postare cât alţii abia adună într-un an! şi, asocierea cu muzica asta creştină, te ajută să vezi fabulosul FIECĂREI imagini, a fiecărui chip de om din pozele tale...
Mersi, Wind!

Victor Mihiş said...

şi, da, există Dumnezeu în fiecare om, da, Dumnezeu este în ochii oricărui om... dacă am privi aşa lucrurile, altfel am relaţiona cu cel din faţa noastră...

Michael Rowland said...

I like the colors in your photos, the harmony is perfect,,,best regards, Happy Sunday!!!

Clint said...

Superb, Wind! If it is true that God created us in His own image, I think you have captured His spirit in the faces of those you have photographed. Excellent, exciting work. Bravo!

Lilli said...

Hello Wind, and thank you... for every face, a story; beautifully captured. Christmas always lead my thoughts to Romania, 1989. Remember it like yesterday.

Kenneth Larsson said...

There was a lot of beautiful portraits that you have captured. I really like them. Very nice!

Have a great sunday evening!

Bob Bushell said...

I think it was the horse. Nice pictures.

Fram Actual said...

Portrait photography might be the most interesting to look at, I think. The viewer can examine each photo carefully for an extended period of time and continue to see more and more features which often reveal the subject's life and personality. You have some great work here, Wind.

I really like the blending of black and white with color. Very effective.

Hi Wind, Once again a great series of images and music and processing on life, aspirations, dreams, struggle and pain. Some things in life we can not answer as we are finite beings but it's how we deal with it that counts.
There are a lot of quality images I like 1, 4, 18, 22, 28, 30 & 31... but I have to pick out number 24 as I could write a book about this one. I'm trying desperately heard to determine whether the water bottles are full or empty. If they are, it could be a symbol of the Water of Life.
Hey, is Santa on his lunch break... removing his beard and listening to his ipod !! Ha ha.
My best wishes, J

Kaya said...

Wind, these photos are so wonderful!!!! I was looking at them with a great interest. Faces of these people are so captivating and they tell their own life stories. You can look at these photos over and over again. Amazing photography!!!!!!

My best to you. Wind.

Luzia said...

Stunning portraits! Their eyes telling stories...... I wish you a wonderful christmas and a happy new year full of inspiration! Hugs and kisses from Luzia.

Probably one of the most important entries I've seen lately; certainly one of your best !


Please have a good new week.

Stunning shots of everyday people going about their everyday life. Well done again.

Teri said...

I love how you have captured the essence of the soul of all these people and that god could actually be one of them! I posted something similar today about this although yours is much more eloquent, as usual! You are always just so "right on" with the photo, the music. They meld and mesh so thoughtfully. Christ was, as we all know from the story, just a poor, homeless person, born to an unmarried woman. He COULD be one of these people, couldn't he? Would we recognize him? Would we treat him right? Makes you think. You make us think.

Lana said...

Удивительное сочетание черно-белых будней с разноцветием человеческих чувств... меня фото тронули, спасибо)

С наилучшими пожеланиями из России =)

pharaonx said...

poze bine facute, expresii si situatii bine alese.in rest despre titlu nu stiu ce sa zic.ramane in suspensie.

robert said...

Nu stiu sa raspund la intrebarea ta... Cred ca Dumnezeu este in fiecare dintre noi, doar suntem facuti dupa chipul si asemanarea lui.
Cea de-a 7-a fotografie, nu o vad in aceasta serie... daca am inteles eu bine ce vrei sa transmiti. In rest, inca o serie fabuloasa, marca WIND.

Karla said...

Sarbatori fericite, Daliana, tie si celor apropiati!
Cu multumiri pentru momentele de incantare pe care le-am petrecut aici:)

DUTA said...

God is in everyone of us including the people you've so skillfully photographed.

Osborne's lyrics and the video serve as a powerful background to the variety of portraits displayed in your posts.

Y. Ikeda said...

Very inspiring and spiritual entry. You have captured the mind of individuals who could be God. In Shinto, we have millions of deities. So everybody can be God in our country!

T. Becque said...

What incredible glimpses into life. You should have a book made of your photos.

Rizalenio said...

I can't stop saying WOW!!! These are all works of a genius.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow!!!

Flutterby said...

Wonderful portrait series with a reminder of who is important, every one. Thanks.

Kenia Cris said...
