The purpose of my photography is not just to display my work, but to give glory to the true Artist…GOD.
If there were only one photograph I could take it would be the one of my daughter on the swing, below! In my opinion its my absolute personal best!
In Genesis 1:2, God’s word describes our planet as “formless and empty”, just like a blank canvas to an artist. Throughout the chapter we see how God spoke everything into existence, from the smallest insect to the stars in the heavens.
Creation itself is a mirror; reflecting God's glory. It reveals God through its beauty and complexity, giving HIM glory in the process and testifying of His power and the love that He has for us.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.

I enjoy getting feedback from experienced photographers, so please stop by and take peek.
I wish I could do this all day and I'm praying for the day that I can.
I'm currently using two cameras...
Camera 1 (my favorite)
- Nikon D80
- Nikon 18mm to 200mm VR lens
Camera 2 (my backup)
- Sony DSC-H1
I've made Explore only 19 times, but like "asawaa" said "To get photos on EXPLORE is one thing, but to see a photo that is a delight to the eyes is a wonderful thing."
My favorite spot for taking pictures is Fairchild Botanical Gardens in Miami. Just beautiful!

""Face to Face", your photos are a LOT better than you may believe. To get photos on EXPLORE is one thing, but to see a photo that is a delight to the eyes is a wonderful thing. You do that. Your photos are a delight to the eyes.
Keep up the good work!
