Day 267

Day 267

That moment when the church president (me) has instructed the balcony crew (That I refer to as the bleacher creatures) to chant and wave "Big Heads" as our Pastor steps up to his final sermon after 42 years of service.

Day 264

Day 264

She said her hands were "gnarly." I told her, I begged to differ. I saw hands that had so many stories. They were hands that have held and cared, created, worked, caressed and loved. 

This all made me realize I have photographed quite a few hands, and I think I have discovered what my project next year will be.  To me, hands are a rather intimate storybook of ones lives. We can hide our ages in our faces, but our hands usually do not lie. 

I look forward to how this seed of vision will develop...

Day 263

Day 263

I have met some pretty cool people in my time living in Valley City, and Gail is one of them! She is a woman after my own heart being a nurse and an artist/potter! She was in need of some business marketing photos and we took advantage of the beautiful evening to shoot and chat. Thank you Gail! It was so good for my soul to do what I love to do!

Day 261

Day 261

A walk by the river with my camera did wonders to calm my anxieties today.  There was such serenity in the calm water and the reflections created intrigued me.  I walked and found moments that inspired me, and was reminded that although I have many concerns and worries, that God was with me in that moment. He is always with me, and that makes all the difference.
