A few photos from my phone...

Thought I would post a few random photos from my cell phone.

This first one is from one of the first snow falls, if you look really carefully in this not so great image you can see at least two very blurry deer.

This photo is another that I took from my date with Olivia, I spoke about that here.

This image is from perhaps the worst cup of coffee I've ever had the displeasure of tasting.  It was purchased during our adventures to Thunder Bay to get Olivia's teeth pulled.  You can read about Tara's take on that process here.

Then this was my lunch the other day when I met one of the guys from the church for lunch.  It looked very tasty at the time.  Hearty potato bacon soup and a egg salad sandwich with coffee.  Next time, I'll go for the chicken salad sandwich though.  Good food and better conversation (that's his coat opposite me here).

Not the greatest photos I've taken, but part of the story, my story.

Pictures of Life Gallery

I've mentioned a couple of times about a project I've been working on.  It's as ready as it will ever be for the public.  It's a gallery of pictures (is this a surprise? probably not). First the pictures... then the details, along with how this might help you...

As some of you know, I'm a pastor.  I've noticed that in some churches it seems a struggle to find good photos to use as a backdrop on their powerpoint presentation, or to slip behind the words when lyrics to songs are projected for group singing.

Over the last few months I've been challenged by many things to try and find a way to help others with my photography.  So I started going through my photos to find images that would work for churches in what I've described above.  Started with over 200 gigs, first cut was just over a 1000 images.  This is a gallery of 200 images.  If you have been following my photography for awhile you'll likely recognize these photos.  They have been shared before.  I am proud of these images.

If you are apart of a church and would like to use these in your services please do so.  You can download them and size them to fit your screen and use them.  Technically I'm putting a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Canada License on these photos.  Click the link to learn more.  However I'm not real concerned with people knowing that I took the picture.  If you do use them, it would be nice if you could send me an email or leave a comment with that photo on the photo gallery page

The little project I mentioned awhile ago?  Well, it's almost ready.  I'm kind of excited about it.  The few dozen or so people who follow my blog, will they be excited? Time will tell.  In the meantime, have a great day.
