Some favorite pics from 2017





I love to take pictures.  I use Flickr as my picture posting site.  However, I also want to see some of your pictures.  Send me your pictures and I will post them on this page.  It is not intended to be a family photo album but rather a page that reveals Jesus through pictures.

If you need some insight, check out the post “The Shutter” on June 15, 2010.

One slight rule:  the pictures have to be no more than one month old.

Let’s see what you got!

Fauna grows in the Marl rock of the Edisto River above Givens Ferry.  This unique picture captures the green canopy against a sun drenched river.

This was pre-Edisto in my hood.  Thought it was funny, a group of about 16 turkeys are roaming the neighborhood.  Crazy turkeys.  Look out come Thanksgiving.

  While my friend Matt took his turn on the rope swing, he hung his camera from the tree.  While I could have posted a lot of other pictures for our kayak trip on the Edisto River, this one sums it up.  I am not sure why, but I like it.  I called this one “Shutter.”  Maybe it catches me since the pictures of our day lay in the camera and yet, it is left behind to enjoy the story of our day.  I am not sure…maybe it is not worth a thousand words, but silence often speaks louder than words.

3 Different views of the Sheldon Church Remains in Sheldon, SC.  The church was built in the 1700’s and was burnt two times.  The first was by British troops during the revolutionary war and the 2nd time by Sherman as he marched through the South.

The long shadows of the fall afternoon brought an eeiree feeling as we walked among the ruins.  The long shadows, bring blue sky and warm afternoon sent the imagination back to the days when families gathered on the steps, the Word of God was proclaimed from the pulpit and the church was the center of the community.  Within moments, among the flmaes lite by torches, the place Chrsitians would call safe is left in ruin.  A reverent sadness stirs the heart.  When men are forced to burn a house of God it makes one wonder what we are capable of.  No wonder someone scratched “to hell with Sherman” on the left side of the church.

This beautiful and quite reverent place is still  used today for weddings.  You can see more pictures on my Flickr sight.
