Day 86 (26 March 2012) Father Daughter Time

Today I’ll be seeing my gf off to Spain for a 3 year tour in the mission field.  It’s a bitter-sweet day as I’m excited for her and proud of what she’s doing, but I’m gonna miss her a lot.  I’ll of course get to visit her and thanks to technology, get to “see” and talk to her often.

Her family and I took a short walk before heading to the airport and I was able to take this shot of her and her father getting some father/daughter time together.

Day 12 (12 Jan 2012) Yesterday and Today

Yesterday I took what is probably my favorite photo of all I’ve ever taken.  It was taken well after I posted my daily pic, but I love it so much I’m posting it here, today, in addition to today’s photo.

It was taken on the day of birth of one of my best friends’ daughter.  I have to admit looking at the finished photo caused some deep emotion to well up.  I’m not saying it’s because it’s all because of the photo, but because it’s personal, I’m sure.

After yesterday, I couldn’t really come up with anything that could compare, but I did tinker around my office for a bit, shooting random objects, trying to see what locked my interest.  Sadly nothing really did, but I lock onto my book shelf.  I LOVE to read, and C.S. Lewis is one of my favorite authors (though admittedly I’ve only read the Narnia series so far).
