A Moment of Reflection

Petey's 1st pool 003 modified

We certainly trust in a lot of fragile things. Money being the number one item. The economy has shown us that we can not put our full faith in it because it is not reliable. It can not guarantee you love, security, health or well being. Job lost everything, except for God’s love. It is the one thing we can lean on and know it will hold strong. We can absolutely know, without fail, that God is our strong tower. When I struggle with things in my life that have failed me. When everything gets crazy; I like to read Job. It gives me perspective and reaffirms my faith. Do you have a book, verse or even person in the Bible that does that for you?

Remember Freedom is not Free. The cost has always been high. Thank someone today for their service. Without their bravery and courage we could not enjoy the freedoms they fought for and continue to defend to this day. Also thank the families that are left behind. They make great sacrifices too! God Bless and have a safe and wonderful holiday.

The Person Behind the Camera

MeFrom the time I was born I had a camera in my face. My Aunt Mimi loved taking pictures. Her love of photography inspired my mother and father. My parents loved wildlife photography. They used to go out every chance they had either to local parks and other wonderful locations in Pennsylvania to capture images of their favorite animals. They especially loved capturing images of the Elk. Which is an endangered species in Pennsylvania.

Watching the elation they all had in capturing moments in time, filled me with joy. I loved seeing them get so excited when they got their pictures back in the mail (oh yes the wonderful days of sending out your film to get it developed). They could not wait till their next shoot.

This made me want to get my hands on my mothers really expensive camera and huge telephoto lens. Each time I asked her if I could use her camera, I got a stern “no” in response.

As time went on I began to purchase affordable cameras. My favorite was my point and shoot Kodak Easy Share camera. It is then that I discovered that I had a knack for capturing images. I eventually saved up and bought my beloved DSLR Nikon Camera.

When I take my camera out of the case I am hopping and praying I can capture the beauty of a moment, or God’s magnificent creations. The world is so beautiful. There is simple and complex beauty every where I look. My drive is to translate the affect it has on me into an image I want to share with all of you. My hope is that the photo’s will inspire and encourage you to enjoy this beautiful world around you.
