I have quite a few engagement shoots coming up over the next weeks. October seems to be a favorite, with the changing colors of Autumn, the crisper air, football season. Everyone seems to be more upbeat.
This past Sunday, I had an Engagement shoot get rained out, I was bummed, it was supposed to be beautiful , I don’t know what happened. Anyways, we are going to wait and reschedule in a week or two and hopefully the trees will be even more beautiful! (Just hopes it stays pleasantly cool, and doesn’t get cold!)
On a more personal note, I was reading a great note by a friend, David Cramer. He was discussing politics and religion and the dangerous mix that this can be. Most notably he was all to well, defying the conservative movement of republicans claiming God is on their side on all issues. His arguments were spot on. The Jesus that we base our lives upon, that we take our name, Christian, from is a far cry from any political party of today. He went on to talk of how Jesus stayed away from any political ties, and chose instead to set forth an example of how we ought to live as humans, as followers of Christ.
Compelling stuff that really goes against the modern conservative political regime.
Since I am a photographer, I certainly should not blog twice in a row without posting a single photo, so here are two from last month’s shooting at Bethel College.
Fall, Fall, Stay Forever
