This picture reminded me of one that I have seen in magazines or photography books before, where you have the couple looking off into the distance by the ocean. The great part about a picture like this, is that you can read so many things out of this photo...for example, what is the couple looking at? Do they see something that has their attention drawn so intently? Or are they contemplating life and the next move they will make together? Or are they both thinking something different as they look out onto the ocean and the horizon? The options are endless, just like the sand they stand on! Personally I really was not sure how the photo would turn out because it was so windy that day...but I am drawn into their "thoughts" everytime I view it!
Hope you enjoy this photo just as much as I have! If you get the chance to take one similar to it, I highly recommend doing so at sunset! :)
Blessings to you!

This is one of my favorite pictures from the Emerald Isle beach wedding. Right in the middle of the wedding there were 3 wind surfers sailing by on the ocean doing their high tricks into the air! It was almost hard for me to remember where I was and who I was taking pictures of...! :) (just kidding)... :)
But the surfers definitly were an added treat to the wedding!
I really like how this picture turned out after I cropped it. Kinda gives it the panoramic look and feel, doesn't it? Posted by Picasa

This picture is just a small example of my creativity behind the camera...there is so much more to explore in this photography world that it will probably take me my whole life to understand it all! Which I find very exciting, because it means I will never stop learning. Of course this is a collage, but the style of picture was taken at the school I attend. DESCRIPTION: It was about 3am and I could not sleep, so I went for a walk on campus. The previous few days it had been raining non-stop, so campus was still wet and the fog had settled in, thus giving it the mistified look. I took these pictures with a digital Canon Rebel XT and have not doctored them other than to put them in collage form for this blog. As I recall it was the beginning of this year, not long after New Years Day. I have a hand full more of these pictures which I may blog later, but I had just made this collage using Picasa and just had to share it with you! Hope you enjoy, I sure did and I thank my Lord for giving me the creativity to be able to take these kinds of pictures. I am currently working on a web site and hope to have it up soon so everyone can view the work and passions behind and in front of the camera. Cheers for now.
Oh yeah if anyone wants some of these pictures email me at :)

On September 23, 2006 at Emerald Isle Beach, NC I had the honor and priveledge of being able to be the photographer for a beautiful beach wedding. This was a special moment for me for a number of reasons: 1) this was the wedding of a friend (the wife) whom I used to work with a few years ago, 2) this was my first ever time to go to a beach wedding and 3) coming in with # 2, this was my first photo shoot on the beach. So there was much joy for me to do this all around. I had the chance as well to drive a new vehicle, which I rented to drive down to the beach from my home in Wake Forest, NC. This might very well be the next vehicle I purchase whenever that time comes. I drove a 2006 red Dodge Dakota. WOW! I was well pleased with the way it handled and the gas milage was worth it as well. :)
The picture above was just after the ceremony and not long before the sun set. I was able to take a number of these type pictures.
I am still new to the blog thing at this point so this is the only picture for now, but as I grow and go, I will add more on.
Until next time...><> Enjoy your day and serve your Lord God! :)
