Guest Photographer

At 10pm, I realized I had not even touched the camera today. So, I am posting a photo one of my students, Gabe, took on Monday. We were working on Depth of Field and selective focus.

April 29

This is my youngest student by far this year. He just turned six, my others are mostly between 15-18.
So he comes on Tuedays mornings (when the teens aren't here)
and we have a great time. There are days when I really miss having a house full
of students this age. They grow up so fast.

More Wisteria

A different kind of worship


Excerpts from: City of God, sermon by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori (for the whole sermon, it is short, go to Ponderings)

People often ask me why an Episcopal bishop would sign e-mails with the Hebrew word Shalom. I tell them that for me it is a continuing verbal symbol and reminder of what it is I'm supposed to be about, and in fact, what all Christians are supposed to be about.......
Let's remember that our baptismal covenant does not distinguish between Christians and others- we promise, with God's help to see and serve Christ in all persons, and respect everyone's dignity, and it doesn't say anything about religion, gender, age, sexuality, nationality, and so on and so forth. The reign of God is not going to be realized until all of us can live together in peace.....

Building the reign of God is a great and bold adventure, and it the only route to being fully alive. If we don't set out to change the world, who will?

The Wisteria bloomed today! The bloosoms only last about a week, but I love this stuff! It is beautiful, smells heavenly, and attracts the big bumble bees and hummingbirds.
So, you will probably see lots of it for a couple days.







Little bonus shot too, you can't see them, but there are pretty big tadpoles
playing around in that algae.

Cave Hill

New look thanks to Ampersand!
She is trying to teach me some simple blogging skills.
She also photo-shopped the first two pictures for me.

April 18

It has been a while since one of my girls has made an appearence. And since she was so interested in the camera tonight, I took her portrait.
And I am finding these sexy tulips irresistible.

My camera and I are coming to a new level of understanding, I am really liking a few of my shots lately. So you can find more on leftovers if you're interested.

I could not resist trying to get this wet little dandelion.
What silly person decided this was a weed!
