Pic of the Month: September ‘11
Desert Shore Most people say: “the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.” But perhaps folks on the Baja Peninsula say “the cactus grows thicker on the other side of the valley.” At least that’s what was going through my head as I stood at the top of a hill overlooking the picturesque seacoast town of...

Joshua and Lisa Wilkes

Joshua and Lisa Wilkes
I must not let a very singular event pass by without having it highlighted on my blog: the marriage Joshua and Lisa Wilkes! My family has been very good friends with the Wilkes Team for many years and with the Butlers for, well, ever since Lisa came into the picture. 🙂 I was honored to have Josh ask me to be the...

MissionTalk

MissionTalk
Perhaps you are wondering why I haven’t posted anything for a few days. Well, it’s because I’ve been focusing a lot of my attention on doing design projects for MissionTalk, a ministry that seeks to reduce your cell phone service costs and directs the funds that are saved toward supporting orphans. Orphans in Tijuana... Read More »

Loons on the Lake

Loons on the Lake
I very much felt like murmuring as I stumbled my way through the darkness. Unlike the magical peninsula of a few days ago, the island I now traversed was covered in impenetrable stands of young pines, impassable bogs of mud, and incredibly abundant piles of dead trees. After fighting my way through the mess for a... Read More »

Mysterious Morning

Mysterious Morning
I had no idea what was in store for Nathan and I as we bumped down the country road to Ox Yoke Lake deep within the Ottawa National Forest. My videographer friend and I had the whole day off, and we figured spending part of it together shooting the sunrise would be a fun and profitable use of time. While Nathan set... Read More »

The Glory of the Creator

The Glory of the Creator
As I was reading Psalm 97 this morning, I couldn’t help but think of this picture, taken just a few nights ago here in the Northwoods. “The heavens declare His [God’s] righteousness, and all the people see His glory. Confounded be all they that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship Him, all ye... Read More »

A Simple Sunrise

A Simple Sunrise
That’s all I can say about it: simple, short, somber. After getting up 30 minutes later than I should have, I was only on the water for a few minutes before what little color in the sky and weak reflection on the lake vanished completely, expelled by the dismal, suppressing cloud cover. Not every photo venture is... Read More »

A Week in the Wild

A Week in the Wild
God has given me the opportunity to spend this next week in the wilds of the Ottawa National Forest at the Northwoods Conference Center. While attending the IBLP Staff Retreat and the JTTH Reunion, I will be taking every opportunity possible to snap some shots of God’s awesome creation unique to the UP of Michigan.... Read More »

A Work in Progress

Well, I didn’t exactly get the back end of things off the ground before September 1, the day I wanted to officially announce Lenspiration’s 2012 Calendar. But at least something is up! Though the interface is not perfect yet, the calendar is ready to go, so feel free to take a peek at it on the new 2012 Calendar... Read More »
