In Volume II of In Plain Sight, Amy Bretall once again shifts our eyes to a perspective of faith with a collection of photographs showcasing everyday crosses. Amy shares how God works in nuggets, nudges and small signs in visual representation of God showing up in our everyday life. Accompanying these captivating images are her uplifting and encouraging words of faith. While some of the photos (25) were captured by Amy herself, 20 photos were contributed by individuals who, inspired by her previous work, started recognizing and photographing the crosses they encountered. We help one another connect within a community of faith.

Amy Bretall refers to them as everyday crosses. They are twigs on a sidewalk, contrails in the sky, shadows on a kitchen table, sunlight on a window frame, and lines on a parking lot. These everyday crosses serve as signs that connect us to a living God, reminding us that God is omnipresent. By seeking Him, we can find Him in the ordinary aspects of life. God uses the ordinary to open our eyes to the extraordinary. Every time we notice a cross, God is inviting us into a deeper relationship with him, a deeper faith.

    The photos in this volume are unique and eye catching. The commentary on each photo is worthy of reflection. I experience reading it as a spiritual tonic to increase my awareness to perceive unexpected crosses which remind me of the sacrifice of Jesus for our salvation. I recommend this volume for its beauty and spiritual wisdom.

    I highly recommend, In Plain Sight-Volume II. Amy has such a way of capturing a photo and then reminding you of the simplicity of the beauty that we often overlook. This is a great book to reignite your faith and hope in the moments of your everyday life.

    I love Amy’s work. Her insight, attention to detail and ability to capture everyday crosses in a unique and artistic way is inspiring. By coupling her images with relevant scripture, she provides context, meaning and relevance. I thoroughly enjoy how she and the other contributors find beauty in what my be considered a mundane object or environment.

    In Plain Sight 2 is a wonderful continuation of Amy’s work and recognition of simple signs that keep us in our faith daily. Beautiful photography capturing these signs. I have all three books and look forward to a 4th!

    In Plain Sight Volume II relays a positive and uplifting message. Amy’s passion for this subject and sharing that love has clearly been inspiring for so many as she has received unsolicited photos of everyday crosses from individuals familiar with her work. I recommend this book as it brings a hopeful and reassuring spirit in everyday life!

    Amy’s photography and prose provide just the right amount of inspiration to help me reflect and persevere. I gave a copy to a dear friend and she absolutely loved it for the same reason. It does make a great gift, but don’t forget to buy one for yourself. I have her print of the shuttlecock hanging on the wall in my office as a sign of the simple beauty we can find everyday.

  9. Mark R. (verified owner)

    This book is filled with what Amy refers to as “Everyday Crosses” that we see daily but don’t always notice. I highly recommend this book. It is full of inspiration and hope through beautiful and simple pictures. It is so positive and uplifting to read and see all of the subtle ways God send us hope.
