Faith and Promise - creating on Pic Monkey!

                                Faith and Promise – creating!

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 assurance of things hoped for. "Dare to Believe... in what you can't see"

A Sign? I Hope Not! Weekly Photo Challenge:Foreboding

This critter pretty much ‘fell’ onto the porch… almost as if it was unintentional. I’m NOT a bug person! But, at least it’s not as big as the ones in Nicaragua that the kids like to play with…

It can leave, now…

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour – Take 2 & 3

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.

I thought these turned out pretty cool.
