After the Storm: Mangled and Beautiful

Tulips, like people can survive a lot and still remain beautiful.

More photos of these tulips can be found here.

New Life.

Spring is here. WI may have gotten snow yesterday and there may have been frost on my window this morning but Spring is here. And Minnesotans everywhere have a reason to hope again. We know what we’re getting ourselves into, we sign up for the long winters, the snow emergencies, the scrapping the cars and the bitter cold but come April nothing feels better than a warm day outside.

Today I took a break (at the instruction of my boss) to go out and take photos of a lone daffodil plant. An assignment I was more than willing to accept. Here are just a few of my favorites:

{Romans 6:8-11} Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Living Vicariously.

My cousin Lauren is a journalism major at the U of M in Minneapolis and has some of the best homework assignments of anyone I know. This weekend I went with her to shoot an event for a project she was working on. The event was the closing celebration of The Soap Factory Presents: The New Land of Milk and Honey. I whole heartedly do not agree with their beliefs, but that has never been a prerequisite for photographing something. That’s the beauty in being an observer. These are just a few of my favorite photos of the day.
