This was a fun photo week. I used the self-timer on my camera for the first time. (I’ve had the camera almost a year.) I also got to photograph buildings, something I’ve not done much.
By the way, the blue skies in the photos from our trip to Athens? That’s the way God made the sky that day. I didn’t do any color correction whatsoever… to any of the photos. It was an absolutely beautiful “sky day.” The only cloud to be seen all day wasn’t really a cloud, but a contrail.
And now on with it. 🙂
Because I want to be like Secret Agent Mama in every way, I took a series of photos of myself looking in my mailbox. I’m still planning on blogging about this one. And I’ll probably try this again when I have more time. (I took this series in about ten minutes’ time one night this week as the light was fading.)
Photos from our trip to Athens, Georgia, to see my dad give remarks upon his retirement from full-time ministry in the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Today is his last Sunday. (Pictures to come on the blog this week and/or next week for Weekly Winners.)
Mom and Dad before the session.
Dad making his remarks. (Each retiring pastor had a few minutes to speak. Many spouses stood on the platform as well… being a pastor’s wife is a calling, I think. Being a preacher’s kid is something you’re born into.)
Athens, Georgia, city hall.
Leaves and shadow outside the convention center. (I took the photo because of the cool shadow.)
Spirit of Athens (sculpture just outside city hall).
Photos taken at the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia.
In the conservatory…
In the outdoor gardens/grounds of the Gardens…
A pool outside the Day Chapel at the Gardens.
Locally grown tomatoes we found at a farmer’s market on our way home from Athens.
Remember the wild raspberries in our yard? Turns out they’re blackberries.
