April Tears and Trials

20130415-214618.jpg

April is a rough month for victims of terror. It was in April of 1995 that evil struck the Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing and maiming hundreds. Today I had a chance to visit the memorial there, and honor those innocents who’s lives evil shortened. Within minutes of starting our tour, friends told me of the horrors unfolding in Boston. The history I was looking at was made present in our lives anew a thousand miles away.

All I can do is offer prayers for healing of hearts, prayers for broken bodies to mend, and prayers that those taken from us here are in the loving embrace of Christ our King. I hope you can join me in that cause.

Scrub Up Sunshine!

Scrub Up Sunshine!

Scrub Up Sunshine!

Start your week off with a smile!  I know I’ll try to!

I was just avoiding a little bit of post dinner cleaning for a few more minutes by playing with my camera…

Everything is spick and span now.  I’m in good graces with the wife and she thinks I’m a bit crazy…but says she’ll keep me another week!

If I scrub up myself up that is…

PS Techies…just a simple shot using my X20 in one of the filers called dramatic tone. I think it has its uses.

Friday Night Lights!

 

Big Time Friday Night Little League Lights

Here is Friday Night Lights as I am living out right now….

My son was out in right field, and it was a long night of walks…17 of them in fact.  So the only action all night long were the throws between the pitcher and the catcher.

Making the best of it I got a high vantage point in the parking lot, went as high ISO as I dared on my Pentax K-5 and shot away.  I was at 1600 here and at F4.0 on my long telezoom.    Pretty much convinced me that one are two artsy type shots were all I’d get last night.  This would be the one reason I’d like a fancy full frame sensor…but I don’t have the extra five thousand to get the body…not to mention more to get the right lenses.

When you got what you got, you just need to work that gear to the max…work your technique and make art with the scene God gave you.

Amazing how everything in photography is a microcosm of life!
