About Phil Lowe
Seventy-four years in this life has led me to believe that each event and situation was designed to teach me who I am and how I relate to the Creator. I was born into a religious community where the words, “The Bible Says,” assumed “Truth.” However, by the age of twelve, I had questions.
My father’s poor health and early retirement required that I work evenings and weekends to complete high school and led me straight into the work force rather than into a more formal education. During a tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I was assigned to an open- minded chaplain who was a true seeker of truth. His desire to expand awareness opened new doors in my mind and gave me a new quest to find “Who” I am and “What” part I play in the game of life. After the Army, thirty-six years as salesman/sales manager in the industrial tool trade gave me a new perspective of how vanity and greed works in the business world and renewed old questions of purpose. While playing racquetball I met a new friend who introduced me to the world of nature photography. As I observed the beauty of nature through the camera lens, I realized I was reading the only book the Creator ever wrote. The images and words that came to mind as I walked the trails in search of the next photograph led to my desire to express through poetic verse the wonders I was seeing though the camera lens. One step at a time is how I came to be where I am Now
