It is becoming very clear that this PhotoBlog is going to be good for my health, and encourage family time. Tonight after dinner my wife, son, and I headed out to the newly finished Kaw River State Park. David ran, and ran, giggled, ran, played with his truck in the dirt. In spite of Davids protests, we left and headed out to the MacLennan Park Trails at Cedar Crest (Governor’s Mansion).
Had a great family stroll… then… A cloud of birds dashed past headed south, then whipped back around to toward us. The shot of the day really turned out in a very end-of-world evil bird kinda manner. I pondered posting a rather dark scripture from Revelation, but opted for a more pleasant, uplifting verse.
Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:26 ESV)

Only day three, and I have gained tremendous respect for pro photographers who have to be creative all the time and come up with beautiful shots every single day for many clients. Since I am more tech than creative, this exercise is stretching me in a good way.
Tonight following a great time at the park with my family, (even with my son biting his tongue – literally, all is well now & he is happy) I headed to FBC to pick up my memory card containing a great picture of the day candidate from earlier in the day. As we approached the building was lit up and it was so nice out – I pulled up and too some shots. For those who are not familiar with Fellowship Bible Church in Topeka, we are not a traditional style church, so our building is fairly modern. Our current facility was completed in the fall of 2007, although it gets heavily used every day of the week, it serves our needs very well with the thousands of people that cycle though during an average week.
