Portion Control

July 5th, 2019

I hope all of you had a restful Fourth of July celebration! For me, there were so many fireworks displays and parades, that I missed sending you an holiday greeting. Sorry about that! There is so much that our American Flag stands for today, and I personally take for granted the true meaning of freedom.


By the way, did you know the biblical meaning of freedom means that we are free of attachments to be able to follow the will of God?
Which brings me to the topic that I would like to share with you today: Portion Control.

Blogger Seth Godin today shared what I find to be a powerful statement:

The digital economy has created an endless buffet, and it is easy to overeat. When confronted with infinity, is it okay to blink?


It is becoming more and more important to be intentional about how we use the internet and digital content, because it can take up so much of our valuable time that we fall short on what is most valuable to us: our relationship with God and those we love.

Which got me to thinking that some of you may not be aware of the direct link to my latest photography. So instead of logon to my website, you can just bookmark this link to quickly check what is new

latest.frankjcasella.com

As you may know, I once sent you a daily mail, then I cut back to about three times a week, and I will still continue this but lean more towards once-a-week. And I send you a new mail once I get four new uploads, instead of a new mail for each new addition. So now you have the direct link to check and see if there is anything new to buy and not have to wait for my mail.


I am also deeply working on some new photography that requires my staying away from being online and the distractions this causes from true solitude.

It is said that if you start to spend an hour a day with your own thoughts, it will take up to sixty days before you remove all the clutter and eventually can start the hour thinking about yesterday and today! I am finding this to be so true! More on this photo project in a future mail .. stay tuned.


Thanks for reading, have an enjoyable weekend!

Frank

Hawks in the Storm - Photograph by Frank J Casella

July 1st, 2019

Hawks in the Storm - Photograph by Frank J Casella

– Hawks in the Storm --

Have you ever noticed that when a storm rolls in there is a strong, cool breeze that comes just before the rain? As the storm in this picture rolled through today in a matter of minutes, it was interesting to me how these hawks threw themselves into that wind before the rain. They seemed in their element as they spread their wings and let the wind carry them across the sky.


Got me to thinking about the storms and struggles that we go through as humans, and do we move with the direction of the moment or resist it?


“Hardships often prepare ordinary people, for an extraordinary destiny".

– C. S. Lewis



<<<-- There are five (5) Hawks in this image, can you find them?

Im Not A Good Catholic

June 21st, 2019

Im Not A Good Catholic

Yesterday someone said to me "I'm not a Catholic and your pictures stop me'. Meaning that my pictures speak to them.


Likewise, others say to me "I'm not a good Catholic". Meaning that because they feel they're far from living how they think a Catholic should, that my pictures inspire them to do better.


The truth is, my pictures are not only for Catholic's, and many of the 'good' Catholic's that I meet often feel they fall short of God's will.


God's will ultimately is that we depend on Him. So work to depend on God more and all is good.


So, don't be so hard on yourselves. Have some hope.


The fastest way to success is to replace bad habits with good habits. One at a time. Don't make your expectations too high.


I do this work because I believe that society needs pictures, through works of art, that are examples of goodness and hope.


I call this 'pictures people listen to'.


So now that we've got all of that out of the way, click the links below and buy yourself some inspiration.


Oh, by the way, I'll be doing a pricing increase sometime in September. So now is a good time to acquire your favorites with a 'discount' from the new prices.


Any questions, hit reply and let me know.

Catholic Wedding Cards by Frank J Casella

June 13th, 2019

Catholic Wedding Cards by Frank J Casella

Ring of Faith


Just like wedding rings join husband and wife in their marriage commitment, a human ring joins people together in their commitment of faith.


Like Saint (Mother) Teresa says,

" If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. "


In other words, the way to love God is to love other people. Faithfulness.

Father In Prayer

June 11th, 2019

Father In Prayer

Learning how to pray and have faith keeps us from being self centered. To be thankful for blessings, and for trusting God, the Creator, for things we hope for beyond our own control.



Praying also helps us to be outward serving and, personally, I'm blessed when I see the impact and results from serving others without expecting anything in return.



In Catholic family life, it is the Mother who nurtures, and the Father who sets the tone, when all things fall into place.



A well-known Swiss study reveals that when the father brings his family to church, more so than the mother, the children continue to go to church when they become adults.



I grew up with my father as the spiritual leader in the home. Mom nurtured this, and today I'm so grateful to have and to know Jesus Christ.



The family that prayes together really does stay together.

Voice of Reason

May 16th, 2019

Voice of Reason

A Person who has a voice of reason is one who influences others to act sensibly. Reason is the power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic.

I've come to believe, as a photographer, people need images that are examples of reason and logic. This is why, for example, the late Norman Rockwell had such a wonderful career.

Rockwell has said "My fundamental purpose is to interpret the typical American. I am a story teller". Many people resonated with his illustrations, including his series on The Four Freedoms. His pictures served as a voice of reason for many.

Rockwell was influenced by many artists and most notably Rembrant. Pictures of human behavior has been illustrated over the years, and more so now with the digital camera, smartphone, and Instagram trend have exhibited reality like never before.

Since I was a kid I've always studied people and body language, in college I studied Rockwell and Renoir, and Edward Steichen, and since 1988 my business has specialized in producing and selling this kind of visual storytelling pictures.

My subjects and goal is to bring goodness and hope, and my pictures include people, sunlight and shadows, personality portraits, whimsically expressive subjects, dog behavior, faith and prayer, all to be a voice of reason to the masses.

Through the language of art I'm trying to express my passion for transforming our good intentions in life by explaining human behavior and right-action.

I invite you to take some time the next few days to study my pictures and seek the life story each one speaks about to you.


Enjoy your day!

Frank

Reflecting On Lent

April 13th, 2019

Reflecting On Lent

When we stare at the Crucifix … long enough


…. our lives become more about Love


… and less about us.






“ Prayer is a crucible in which our expectations and aspirations are exposed to the light of God ’s Word, immersed in dialogue with the One who is the Truth, and from which they emerge free from hidden lies and compromises with various forms of selfishness (cf. Spe Salvi, n. 33). Without the dimension of prayer, the human “ I ” ends by withdrawing into himself, and the conscience, which should be an echo of God ’s voice, risks being reduced to a mirror of the self, so that the inner conversation becomes a monologue, giving rise to self-justifications by the thousands. ”

– 2008 Pope Benedict XVI





May the the message of Christ's Passion, and the blessing of Holy Week, bring you into a new conversion of the Faith.

Frank
