‘Seedbud’ often posts wonderful abstract images and includes a bit of prose. This is one of my favorite combinations of beauty and deep thought.
The fall foliage here in Vermont has been one of the best in years. The colors are so varied and vibrant. I was able to get this shot of Lake Iroquois this past week after a charitable motorcycle run. It fits well with my blog’s blurb, “Beholding and reflecting the glory of the Lord through glass.”
My daughter and I did a senior portrait session last week for a friend. It was such a blessing to have my daughter accompany and assist me. She is a fantastic photographer and offers some wonderful ideas. Our friend, Mikayla, has such a sweet spirit and was great to work with.
For this shot, I used my Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens at f/4, while my daughter held up the gold reflector from the Impact 42″ 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector Disc Set.
For the two shots below, I used my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens at f/2.8. The sun’s light was still harsh in the first image, so I used the shade of the tree to soften the light on her face. The last image is my favorite and was taken just as the sun was setting behind the mountains.

I recently bought a colorful, artsy scarf, which I quickly noticed frays easily. Even though it looks like a mess, the nice thing about its design is it seems as easily fixed by stretching the fabric in just the right place and with the right amount of tension. I was reminded of how God designed us in such a way that we are not so easily broken, and when life begins to fray, if we will allow God to stretch us a bit, even when it looks like a mess, our lives can become untangled. He knows just how and where to stretch us so our lives can look like a beautiful tapestry once again.

I have been so busy I didn’t think I would have a good opportunity to participate in this week’s “Silhouette” photo challenge, but while doing a senior portrait session last night, the opportunity presented itself. I love how the senior’s silhouette turned out!
