Saturday was time for hockey for one of my grandsons. He didn’t score but it was an exciting game and I was able to capture this shot of the pick entering the goal. Unfortunately the shooter was from the opposing team.
The other morning while I was getting dressed there was a televangelist on TV extolling and warning that we better be preparing for the coming of The Lord aka Jesus Christ. He spoke of his acts of kindness And that we should live our lives following His wishes if we wanted to be saved in heaven. At the end of the broadcast they reminded the listeners that they child purchase the very special ministry bible for only $59.95
Now since I am Jew I look at Jesus as just another prophet following the laws that had already been done in the writings in the Torah scripts. Yesterday I performed a random act of kindness that the details of which are not needed here. But I got to thinking how would anybody recognize if Jesus actually returned. What would he look like? Would he still be dressed in his old street robes? Would he still carry his scars from the crucifixion?
Maybe Jesus has returned. He is certainly not present in many Christians who seem to have forgotten most of his simple teachings. Maybe he is present in some of the great people who have come before who spent their lives doing random acts of kindness throughout their lives. People like Abraham Lincoln, Mother Theresa, and Nelson Mandela.
So as we have now entered the season of giving, I thought every season was for giving, what will you do to help those in need. I think I saw Jesus just the other day or was it someone just putting some coins in a Salvation Army kettle?
Back Back in September of 2010 I took this picture of 2 little boys on the beach and I named it Ebony & Ivory after the song. Since that time it has received over 1000 views on Flickr. I have an idea that one reason it the title and content. In any event I love the picture.
Ebony And Ivory Live Together In Perfect Harmony
Side By Side On My Piano Keyboard, Oh Lord, Why Don’t We?
We All Know That People Are The Same Where Ever We Go
There Is Good And Bad In Ev’ryone,
We Learn To Live, We Learn To Give
Each Other What We Need To Survive Together Alive.
- Paul McCartney
I gotten very intrigued with film making which is why I bought the Canon 60D. Timelapse and film seems to be becoming my main interest. I think it will play very well into my interest in street photography.
I was having a problem fully understanding the SVRT mode in this video and the use of custom setting when rendering the final product. I spent about a week going back and forth with Cyberlink tech help. Sometimes the obvious solution remains hidden. Thanks to my own research on YouTube I came up with the answer. If some of the exposures look a little weird I finally discovered how to set the f-stop after this film.
Today is about endings. Fifty years ago today I was bemoaning the loss of John F Kennedy. I had just turned 21 and I was looking at a bright future as was the country. I did have the treat of the Viet Nam war but I was going to be married before I would be selected by the draft. That qualified me for a deferment. But besides that it was Camelot and Jack was like an older brother that I was proud that he had ascended to the Presidency and he had this beautiful wife and the children and then it was over. At 12:30PM, November the 22nd the world as we knew it would end. Camelot was lost and a new reality came into being. So I leave you with this example of endings. As my mother used to say it will get better.
