This morning my music pastor sang a wonderul song that I’ve heard many times before, but this morning, it hit me like a ton of bricks, falling right on my heart!  I love my family, my wife, I love my photography buddies, and I love    this life, but nothing comes close to my love for, and debt to Jesus.  No matter what people say, no matter what they think of me, I will spend all my remaining days trying to introduce them to Him.  Steve Green’s wonderful, Holy Spirit inspried, song tells everything you need to know.


Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?


On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.


People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord?


We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What could be too great a cost
For sharing Life with one who’s lost?


Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the Words of Life
Only we can share.


People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.


People need the Lord.


I feel no greater desire than to tell others about my Savior, and my friend, Jesus Christ.  I’m having a shirt made for the people who are part of Artists Standing For Christ,  It says it all.  He sacrificed everything for me, I can do no less for Him.

The image above reminds me of how incredible a life of photography has been for me. This image may not resonate with you, and that is fine, the point is……  it resonated for me. Photography is a craft, but it is much more than that, it is a life.  You have all been where I was when I looked down and saw this rope, the boats bow and the reflection in the water.  I was stunned by the simplicity and the poetry of the lines and the textue and that is it!!!  For me,  photography is about all those things, line, form, texture, color and composition, it’s alive.


Photography will only speak to you when you speak to it!  Live it, breathe it, and embrace it!  The rewards are unfathonable!  Enjoy your journey!

Many thanks to all of you that have sent me an email so I could recapture your email addresses!!  Now in Entourage when I  got an email it apparently auotmtically listed the email  address on my contact list or email list, whatever it is called!  With Outlook, it does not, I wonder if anyone out there knows where in preferences you can turn that automatic function on, or how ot click on an email and capture the email address in my list of email addresses????


In Enterouge if I typed in the name “Chuck” I was offered several friends with the first name Chuck to choose from, (Chuck Summers, Chuck Barnes, etc) to address an email, it was very convient!


Any help anyone might offer would be very much appreciated!
