wish i were here...

12:25 AM

This weekend I found myself browsing some old photos. I love doing this. Seeing old photos with fresh eyes feels like finding hidden treasures. These photos were taken in 2005, when I took photos with a cheap Kodak digital camera and had no idea words like aperture, f stop, or ISO even existed. I polished these up with a little Photoshop love, and now I wish one of those little dots standing there.

S. Africa July 20-Sept 1 05 168

beautiful coast

The drive along the coastline to Africa's southernmost tip is stunning. It's always been a highlight anytime we've traveled to Cape Town. I wish I was there now... Sigh...

Update: Thank you for praying for my friend's parents after their tragic accident. Tim went to be with Jesus February 7 at 4:20 pm, his wife's hand in his. Please continue to pray for his wife, Linda, and two daughters, Elisa and Erin, as they mourn his passing and celebrate his life.
