(flyer words) JOYous Nature PHOTO WALK
with Joy Krauthammer
"It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” - Henry David Thoreau (Journal, 5 August 1851)
On Joyous Nature Photo Walk, with your camera or phone, shoot consciously with your heart and mind, all the joy, wonder and sacred moments you ‘see', and 'dance with your soul’ as you experience Hod / beauty that inspires awe and gratitude.
Mindfully breathe in deeply and smile as you gaze upon The Creator’s gifts. Grasp essence of splendor that can’t be understood. Recognize and honor the Divine Presence, the radiance of energy we are, and is reflected back to us.
Prepare for Tu B’Shvat / Birthday of the Trees, and take home a fig tree, gift from Joy.
Photos and videos by Joy fill her 80+ websites, are published in books, magazines, and on-line, and adorn spiritual and government websites. Revealing the Holy One, her photos have been exhibited at the Jewish Federation, Exodus Festival, Brandeis-Bardin, Mount Sinai Cemetery, and 2014 at American Jewish University and 2014, Creative Soul Gallery, NY. Joy’s images are shared weekly online in 52 Frames, and Caffeinated Photographers, and daily in FaceBook.
Following in the footsteps of her artistic maternal ancestors (and daughter), since a child, Joy has used a camera as medium (as well as words, earth, fiber, and a drum) for joyous and personal expression.

perception and awareness, eye and vision:
Early in the day, and
outside-- to the flower, I say, “Good morning".Be present.
The flower hears me. G*d
hears me.Have conversation, shmooze, look
into the Face of G*d. Into others’ eyes.
Separate from crowd, linger and/or go beyond path. Discover what is
beyond. (Don’t stay stuck at entrance.)
Be alert. See what others are peering at (i.e. peacock
high in a tree).Keep clicking.
Awareness for obstacles: poison
ivy, loose stones, holes, and snakes.
Be adventuresome, don't be
lazy, and don’t be late.Catch the guide
and tour bus. Charge batteries.
Consciousness: Missed bus in Russia, late in Bali, Tibet.
And hiding & shooting,
I’ve been caught by guards, gendarmes and gardeners in: Huntington Library’s
Rose Garden, CA, and shooting Generalissimo Francisco Franco, Spain, and
vaulting* a Botanical Garden locked high gate in Texas after closing hours, and
then personally escorted out.
*(Studying in Hebrew U.
Jerusalem in an Art & Architecture of Synagogues summer course, I learned
“The primary talent of an artist is his ability to step
away from the externalities of the thing and, disregarding its outer form, gaze
into its innerness and perceive its essence, and to be able to convey this in
his painting (photography).
This is how an artist can serve his Creator.” -
