To wake to the sounds of birdsong, sit in the pre-dawn quiet, and watch the sun gently rise over the distant ridge is to feel the soft touch of our Creator.
Yesterday, I had to return the incredible 50mm 1.2 lens I’d rented from borrowlenses.com; before I shipped off this sweet lens, I got a few practice shots of my students. While most of them hid their faces, this young lady, after a few warm-up shots, relaxed enough to give me this. (She later told me that she wants to be a model.)
Psalm 74:16 The day is yours, and yours also the night;
you established the sun and moon.
I once lived near this beach and treasure my memories of hours playing in the sun, sand, and surf with my sons and walking in the moonlight with their father. When I spent 2 1/2 days on Miami Beach last week, wonderful memories caressed my soul and brightened my spirit. As I look at the images in my library, I smile to remember not only last weekend but the years when my family was young.
