Net Fishing and the Sunset

This Chomorro man was net fishing on the beach when I went down to photograph the sunset.  Both mother and I thought that it would make a worthwhile photo. This is my best capture from the bunch.

Our Beach

The beach in front of our house.


The ocean's tide was flowing like a river here!

Our Famous Puppy

Yesterday morning I was pleasantly surprised to discover that on National Geographic Kids MyShot Home Page slide banner, my photo appeared the second dot to the right.  I soon found out that I had been chosen as one of the February National Geographic Kids Best Photos of the Month.  Now my photo will be considered to be in the "Best Photos of the Year" slideshow.  Your ratings would be appreciated.

Starfish Sunset

A few days ago I went down to the beach with Araya's camera and my GorillaPod, to take some sunset photos.  Araya kindly let me borrow her camera, because mine is broken. =( Her camera has superb live-view, which is very useful when your tripod is standing in three inches of water.  The intent was for me to stay dry (by not having to lay in the water to see through the viewfinder) but I was laying on the shore, looking through the live-view, and a big wave came up, and I was soaked.  Araya was not exactly super pleased that her camera strap was wet, but I kept the camera dry (and she could have rinsed it off it I didn't- her camera's very water resistant).

The intense color of the sunset reminded me that God has great taste! He must have had so much fun creating the sunset! If He can make such a vast stretch of the sky so beautiful, he can surely take our little needs.

Pentax K30
18-55 mm Pentax-Synaptic lens

Thanks Araya for letting me use your camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GYC 2012!!

Stepping on the bus was a big thing for me.
It meant I had made it. I was going to GYC even after all the talk of not going. As I sat in the plush seats waiting for the bus to start, I thought, "Just six hours and I will be there." The bus' brightly colored ceiling roused me to my senses as the giant bus lurched forward.
About six hours later we were in Seattle. It was fabulous! Within minutes of our arrival I spotted Joshua Neblett walking down the sidewalk. 
After settling in our hotel, we went to register. I saw so many familiar faces! What seemed like minutes later, it was already the next morning. Time was flying by like it was in a Ferrari
The meal 's were fabulous, the sermons were grate outreach was wonderful. I even sang with the Stateline youth choir for a special music for the Sunday noon meeting.
One of my favorite things about GYC was meeting Richard Steffens in person 
                               Please check out his videos ^ with the link above!
 My conclusion is simply if you did not go YOU MISED OUT!!!!!!!
