For unto us a child is born…

December 07, 2010
(Isaiah 9:6-7) 6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.The other day, I was finishing up my scavenger hunt when I paused on “It’s beginning to look a lot...

The Art of Texture and Blending Modes

November 16, 2010
Sunday afternoon, I got an itch to shoot some macros. So, I went outside to see what I could find. Sure, most of the flowers have died, our grass is going into hibernation and our leaves are falling, but I found some incredible macros and bokeh! Although many of my shots are still on my SD card, I wanted to start practicing some of the lessons I’ve learned through Kim Klassen’s Skinny Mini course.
