Remembering Foreign Missionaries

Remembering Foreign Missionaries
Being in Korea on Memorial Day is a little different than being in the States. Though it is not a recognized holiday here, Donald and I took the opportunity to recognize with honor a special group of great men and women from the past during a recent fieldtrip to Yanghwajin Foreign Missionary Cemetery in Seoul.

3 Steps to the Perfect Picture

3 Steps to the Perfect Picture
In a recent post, The Work of Art, I talked about how difficult it is to create beautiful landscape images. More often than not, beauty is ascertained by much more than just our sense of sight, so it is often discouraging when we return to our homes, look over our pictures, and consistently see that they nowhere...

Someone is Eating the Sun!

Someone is Eating the Sun!
I have fond memories from childhood of reading and re-reading a delightful little children’s book called Someone is Eating the Sun, which in it’s own humorous way described the scientific marvel of a solar eclipse.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen it snow on April 23 before. By that time, grass was already green and growing fast.... Read More »

Hence, it is such a delight when God brings little reminders long my way, such as this appropriately shaped White Calla Lily in Mexico last February,... Read More »

The Work of Art
The day spent in Nassau, Bahamas, was a full and fabulous one! The sunrise over the city was a phenomenal one, and I was grateful for good foreground subject matter. I was also able to use a tripod for the first time on the trip because we had docked during the night and the ship was as motionless as a boulder. The... Read More »

First Day at Sea

First Day at Sea
Though the ship didn’t leave Port Canaveral until late in the afternoon on Monday, April 30, Josh & Alejandra Guido and I arrived not long after Noon; just like at an airport, there were security and boarding procedures to go through that took a long time. But unlike an airport, the atmosphere was very sociable... Read More »

Back on Dry Land

Back on Dry Land
It was only this morning that with bittersweet emotions I disembarked the Royal Caribbean cruise ship Monarch of the Seas that served as a means of leisurely conveyance from Port Canaveral, FL, to various locations in the Bahamas this week. Not only was it a phenomenal opportunity for photography, but it was also a... Read More »
