Thank you for visiting

With the pride of the artist, you must blow against the walls of every power that exists the small trumpet of your defiance.

Who I Am
I am George H Wood, an award winning photographer and writer whose artistic philosophy is to present ‘stories illuminated’.As a photographer, I endeavor to create images which tell a story and write to create images in the mind. The over arching theme of the stories are to amplify basic truths and evoke compassionate understanding of nature and our fellow beings. My formal training and life long vocation as a scientist forms the foundation of the stories so they are consistent with reality and yet spiritual in their essential principals. Occasionally there will be fanciful stories, with the intention of allowing exploration of the inconceivable vastness of our existence both distant and near, large and small, physical and metaphysical. Please enjoy the stories.
What I Do
I invite you to slow down, explore the wonderment of that which is inside each of us as basic truths and to revel in some spiritual refreshment. Our lives are very busy and inundated with information interpreted for us. It hardly gives us time to think for ourselves. The best way I know to eliminate the external noise and provide a space for reflection is through poetry and images that encourage interpretation of where you are right now. Photography and poetry are both reductive, stripping away the superfluous and focusing on that which is often unseen because of the extremes of every day life. Hopefully, this site provides a mental oasis where we can safely explore our being and achieve a level of mercy for all living beings.

Mind and Spirit

As sounds in a musical composition can be used not to express physical objects but ideas, emotions, harmonies, rhythmic orders and most any expression of the human mind and spirit, so light can be used visually to express the mind and spirit. – Wynn... read more

Misty Tree

Hold on to what is good, Even if it’s a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, Even if it’s a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, Even if it’s a long way from here. – Pueblo Prayer... read more

Blue Eyes, Golden Waves

Life is lifted by love As a bird lifted to wing to reach your window Rising from the sea to joy waves surging to life Exquisite, abundant pleasure I cannot reconcile what is owed Blue eyes are exuberant treasures Golden waves, your being Blue and gold mix before... read more
