Double-Dribbling the Harvest Moon

The fact that I don't own a tripod for my camera -- and my strong inability to hold the camera steady -- lead to some very unusual shots. This is the harvest moon that had just come up over the horizon across the street from our house tonight; gives new meaning to the phrase "moon bounce."

A Two Post Day

I thought the picture above really captures the spirit of our parish retreat at Shrine Mont: a circle of fellowship.

On our way home this afternoon, we stopped by a very old church (constructed in 1825) in Mount Jackson, Virginia. My wife pulled the car off the road so that I could get out and take some pictures, including this one of an amazing gravestone crafted in the late 19th century.

Candlelight Prayer Service

This evening, nearly everyone who was attending our parish retreat went to a candlelight Compline service at the outdoor chapel of Shrine Mont. While everyone was being seated, I snapped this picture; initially, I thought I would be disappointed in how it turned out, but now that I've seen it on the computer I don't think I would change a thing.

An Odd Color Photo

I was trying to capture some good shots of my wife and daughter dancing at the sock hop at our parish retreat tonight, and surprisingly came up with this one that I think is really cool. You see the double strand of the moving rope, and the doubled-up images of the folks dancing in the background.

A First-Time Convertible Ride

We were having some difficulties with the car we normally use to pick up our oldest at pre-school, so today she had the big thrill of riding in our Mustang convertible. Someone looks really happy in this picture!

A Helping Hand

Today was the first day of cereal for our youngest, and big sister really wanted to help with this first feeding. Looks pretty intent about the whole thing, don't you think?
