Sunday Worship

Worship in Costa Rica
(For those who've asked about HDR, I shot this without a tripod, since I was in a church.  It is extremely difficult to hand hold and bracket 3 separate shots without camera blur, so this isn't as sharp as it should be. )

Notes:  I've been on another quickie Moab trip, then lots of family things to keep me busy, and today, Mother's Day, I've had a house full of family and grandkids.  It's been a great week with little time for photography or blogging, so I'll have to play catch up next week.  Actually that's not true.....yesterday I took bridal photos for my nephew's soon-to-be wife.  We had so much fun, and I took bridals different than I've ever taken before!!  I'll post some soon, and hopefully get caught up with my blog and email correspondence.   

One quick comment about Mother's Day.  I have 2 beautiful daughters and 2 beautiful daughter-in-laws, and 1 more beautiful soon-to-be daughter-in law.  I also have 3 handsome sons, and 2 handsome son-in-laws.  My wonderful blessing is that they all love and respect me, and the icing on the cake is that they all love and respect each other.  Last night they all went out for an evening on the town together, and today at dinner told us how much fun they all had.  My heart is full, I am so blessed!!!!!!   I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, too!

What a beautiful church!
So glad you had such a great time with such great family! I was getting concerned about you!

Amazing that you could hand hold that and get that clear. Especially since light in a church like that is usually very low, so the exposures were definitely not short. Very nice job and glad you had such a nice Mothers' Day.

Thanks again for the wonderful shower and taking bridal pics of Kenzie. Few people -- family or friends -- would give the time and talent you shared with us all day Saturday (and probably Friday as well) in preparing and executing such a great event. Thank you, thank you.

I also LOVE the altarpiece of this church in Costa Rica!

WOW! Two important things strike me about this photo...

1) You are VERY SKILLED to have bracketed that shot without a tripod. It is magnificent and you have done a brilliant job here! Great shot all around.

2) You are so blessed to have that family dynamic. I am thrilled that you cherish it as much as you obviously do.

This post made me so happy! :o)
