"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

Photogenic Favorites of Mine

Photography fun with friends on the beach in Antalya, Turkey

You know those friends who pretty much always look good in photos? These are mine. I just point the camera nonchalantly at them and *poof*—nice-looking photo.

Photography fun with friends in al-Najaf in southern Iraq

I’ve learned quite a bit about taking portraits thanks to them. They’re usually open to my lens in their faces since photos are so useful for us. Living abroad puts a strain on far-flung relationships, but photos definitely ease that. And, of course, I get to practice taking portraits, so it’s a win-win for all of us!
