This is the First Presbyterian Church in Orange, TX. It is an extremely beautiful church which was founded by the Stark family who made their fortune in the lumber business. It is still recovering from damage during hurricane Rita but fortunately a foundation was established to cover the maintenance of the building.
This is where I went to Sunday school when I was a small child. I can still close my eyes and see the stain glass angels under that dome. Both my mother and I said after attending an aunt's funeral that the chapel itself has "shrunk" in our minds but it's beauty and peace remains.

Well THIS is a photo of the week - LOL
Clever application and interesting abstract
He didn't like my panning because I didn't have a ND filter on and the light was too bright.
He didn't like my reflections because the water was moving therefore the picture will never be sharp as a tack when hyperfocusing.
Finally read an article on Nikonians to learn what I wanted to about my camera - but FINALLY got an interesting assignment in the D200 class which might make me say it was worth taking - so stayed tuned for next week's assignments.

I ended up with a non functioning brick since I left my CF card at home - I've GOT to get another card - took really LOUSY pictures at the dinner we were hosting because I need help interpreting the Greek in the SB600 flash manual. So I waited till yesterday and it was a BEAUTIFUL cold day here. I actually wore a sweater - LOL
Here's my faithful subject - he usually ends up getting his picture taken because he never tires of hitting balls. I actually got him at impact. He does end up appreciating my photography because he is working on changing his swing (why when his old one was fine) and he can really see what he wants to work on with these shots.

Happy Valentines Day!
I'm feeling much better - especially after the scare I gave myself with my back last night. Went to the PT and she says I'm fine and still good to go for adventuring - that was my valentine present.
I started playing with the flowers DH gave me. Tripod makes all the difference in the world.
