Christmas Bells

Christmas Bells
Just wanted to post a picture before heading out tomorrow to spend Christmas with friends in North Carolina. This ornament on my families Christmas tree commemorates what I hope folks would consider to be a special time in history (ie. the year I was born) and is thus a personal reminder to me of the very reason why...

Barbers DO Exist!

Barbers DO Exist!
Here’s a great story I ran across today. It has nothing to do with photography, but I think it’s true and certainly gives a good dose of perspective. A man went to a barbershop to have his hair cut and his beard trimmed. As the barber began to work, they began to have a good conversation. They talked about many... Read More »

Moon Over Mt. Rundle

Moon Over Mt. Rundle
Going through pictures, I couldn’t help but love the uniqueness of this capture! It’s one of few night shots I took in the Rockies last month simply because every day was filled from sun up to sun down to the point that I had not the energy to shoot from moon up to moon down. However I managed to grab this shot of... Read More »

Walking by Faith

Walking by Faith
Thank you so much for praying for the Journey to the Heart I was on last week! As evidence of God’s working, let me share about one fellow on my team who began to see God answer prayer even before he returned home to day.
