Snow Desert

Out playing in the snow this afternoon.

Christmas continues in the north!

What was from the beginning, what we have heard,
what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and
touched with our hands concerns the Word of life.
For the life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us,
what we have seen and heard we proclaim now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.

1 John:1

The world un-noticed

Just a few shots of the world that most people never notice.

Night shot of the Cass Street bridge at LaCrosse, Wisconsin:

Just some wooden stairs:

Some weeds in a field. I purposely used the technique called “Intentional Camera Movement”. You use a longer shutter speed, in this case just under a second, and move the camera while taking the shot.

Harvest

Oh Israel, how vast is the house of God,
How broad the scope of his dominion:
Vast and endless,
high and immeasurable!
In it were born the giants,
renowned at the first,
stalwarts, skilled in war.
Not these did God choose,
nor did He give them the way of understanding;
They perished for lack of prudence,
perished though their folly.

– The Prophet Baruch: 3

Harvest time!

Milky Way

Our camera club went out shooting the Milky Way tonight. It was a perfect night!

I decided before I went home to turn the camera around and see what it looks like in the other direction.

ArtSpire

The City of LaCrosse had a small festival called “ArtSpire” last night.
Caught shots of some amazing people!

There were performances from a local Indian Tribe, the Ho-Chunks. The presenter called himself an Indian. No political correctness here!

Behind the stage were a couple of artists doing actual paintings!

Contemplative

My contemplative grandson!

“The ends of the Earth stand in awe
at the sight of your wonders.
The lands of sunrise and sunset
you fill with your joy. “

Psalm 65

The Way of the Cross

It’s Holy Week. We know what’s coming……our salvation!

“As he rode along, the people were spreading their cloaks on the road; and now as he was approaching the slope of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of his disciples began to praise God aloud with joy for all the mighty deeds they had seen. They proclaimed: “Blessed is the king who comes  in the name of the Lord.Peace in heaven  and glory in the highest.”

Luke 19
