I just finished reading a post by David DuChemin on his blog called "Life Is Short". Please, please take a moment to read it. It is one of the most profound things I have read in a long time, and it has caused me to stop and take stock of my life once again: http://www.pixelatedimage.com/blog/:

(These first two are ones I took of random things that caught my interest)
I didn't have a lot that I'd taken of this trip home (got more on Sunday but unfortunately they are still on my camera) It was Ree who got the jaw dropping shots this weekend. Just take a look at these uncensored sunset shots at the farm!
Would you look at those hues, she's really working on applying all that knowledge from our Workshop and the books she's reading :-)
Ree would also tell you it's finding that one extraordinary sunset/sunrise. Waiting for just those right moments of lighting can really make the shot. There are so many more from this weekend that I'd love to show you but first I'll have to see if Ree wants to share them :-) I think she needs her own blog to show the amazing things she is doing with her love of photography too.
Deb grabbed her up, and as you can see Gracie has that look of adoration in her sweet doggie face, she just loves to be cuddled.
What a great time all round, now I can't wait for Christmas on the farm!

My family say I'm a story teller, and I think they may be right. Everything I photograph speaks to me. I may not always be aware of it's voice, but my instincts are to find the angle, the light, that split second when I can 'see' what the story might be. I wonder is that how God felt while he shaped this world, breathing life and story into nature, into us. I expect so. I know that I seldom feel more connected to God and all that is around me than when I'm seeing it through the lens of my camera.
