Photo: Tug-o-War Time!

Every now and then one needs a break from the tedious day-to-day. On this particular day I decided to watch riveting tug of war match anchored by an Elephant, and a donkey. While the elephants team is loosing in this particular photo, they ended up winning. All animals were harmed shortly after this photo was taken….

Photo: Print from Paris

Last January Jordan and I spent a week in the city of lights for our 4 year anniversary. For those of you who don’t know, we feel called to move to (in my case, back to) France to plant a church. We had been thinking Paris but Jordan had never been before, so after all…

Photo from Friday

Last Friday we went out to the Holidazzel Parade and it was really cold, well into the negative digits and on our walk back to the North Loop we past this garage that was full. Thought it was a nice image and captures the attitude that us Minnesotans take during the winter. No frigid weather…

It has been a few weeks since we returned from NYC but it was a really fun trip. After finals were done we headed to the twin cities and took off the next morning for New York. The balance of just finishing another semester with being somewhere on vacation is just awesome.

Snowflake to the Operating Room…

After several years the time has finally come to send my camera into canon for some major repairs. I don’t yet know the cost but hopefully it will be sub $500 so that I can afford it… I’ve looked at the price to replace it and it is still very expensive. Then there are all…

While in Pau with Olivier we walked through this beauitful garden. I took several pictures of it but then here were eleven ducklings. So amazingly carefree and I even got to see a couple fall off that rock into the water (one of the three swimming had just done so). After a few minutes we…

Photo: Castet Castle

Sweet castle next to a lake, I really loved the atmosphere in the perspective. Otherwise it is a very basic and straight forward photo. Post-processing includes some levels and curves.

Photo: our only hope…

Walking up hill, looking above me, there was this cross perfectly blocking the sun. It’s amazing how with one step in either direction there is so much clarity and definition that is lost in the cross as the sun becomes overwhelming. How in my life for years I was close to knowing Christ as Savior…

Photo: Sheep herding in the street

In the middle of a very small village nestled in the mountains there were sheep, close to fifty, walking in the street on their way to a new pasture. The mountains are still cold and have a lot of snow, so the grazing animals have been forced to stay down in the valley a bit…

Photo: Pathway into the blue, past that ridge

With boughts of hail dampening our spirits slightly I turned to prayer. Praying that the thunderstorms the valley over wouldn’t spill over, and God responded by providing blue sky for our walk down the mountain and the rest of the day. It was amazing. This shot was taken looking back on our way down the…

I climbed this mountain with olivier and i had on really bad shoes (which by this point were very wet). This little cabane is where we had lunch before walking around near the summit (never made it… the snow was a few feet deep and we weren’t in winter gear) before heading back down. Slight…

Photo: Doma in a puddle at night

The last I’ll post to my blog from my trip to Florence with my parents. It was a great trip and this is one of, if not my, favorite photos. The ripples all blurred away with the time exposure that was needed to take a well lit shot. Kind of a bummer. But I really…
