Well gee… I thought maybe I was going to write a somewhat depressing post on transition. The although transition’s good, it can be very hard post.
But in updating the missions blog, I created a photo. Started out with one of the photos from a recent rainbow, to represent faith and the promises of God. A little adjustment with the color saturation and temp, a significant crop, then some play time with some effects and texture, etc, and voilá! Well that was fun! And you get a non-depressing photo!
(And I’ve decided photos usually look better bigger – after you clicked on them! I’m still learning my way around here!)
With another step.. a little more creating, and now we have this! What is it about creating that makes one feel better!
Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the substance of things unseen, the evidence of things hoped for. “Dare to Believe… in what you can’t see”
First entry for this challenge were pics previously taken. But this one sparked an interest to shoot intentionally. Yesterday morning, I took the camera along with me for the 2 mile walk I was braving, literally for the first hour the day to hopefully beat the heat. *Ha! It got cooler as that hour went on as I heated up.
Take 2 – The first shots were a little rough, but the colors were cool as I started up the first small facing directly towards the rising sun. The I had to make a right and couldn’t see much past the corn stalks. Once I hit the next intersection, things started to lighten up and taking pictures got a little easier… until the camera started doing something it’s never done before…

TAKE – 3 Not long after reading the challenge post, I drove past our church that evening in the city and was taken by how the evening sunlight cast long beautiful shadows upon the lawns of the cemetery behind it and I thought, oh I should have brought my camera. But I remembered it with Tues evening when I was back. These were taken through or just over the fence. I wanted to go in and get up the hill, which over looks the city, but I kept getting interrupted and missed my opportunity.
