Day 177 – Time Stands Still in This Place

Time Stands Still in This Place

Day 177

Still Here by Langston Hughes

I been scared and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has friz me,
Sun has baked me,

Looks like between ’em they done
Tried to make me

Stop laughin’, stop lovin’, stop livin’–
But I don’t care!
I’m still here!

Day 89

Day 89 – I am in the middle of trying to install my shiny new toy: Creative Suite 5.5 Design Premium.  Oh my goodness am I having issues; I have been uninstalling CS4 and installing CS5 for the past 4 hours – computer crashed in the middle of the install and it didn’t want to cooperate after that, so now I am uninstalling CS5 and getting ready to re-install the whole thing – EGAD!  I am glad that I got my shots for today ready early!

This is Union Station in South Bend, Indiana – one of those cities in that top 10 dying cities list.  There is a HUGE dilapidated old building behind the station that I really wanted to photograph, but alas circumstances would not allow for it.

 

Day 80

Day 80 completes a weekend of an overabundance of photo ops.  Today’s choice is a selection of photos of Sam jumping at the church picnic.  It was a big day at Riverside today; we are celebrating 36 years, over 80 people were baptized in the river and we had the huge block party going.  What a gorgeous day for everyone to show up – it was standing room only in the auditorium and I can not even imagine how many people were in there; there are usually right around 500 in the second service – there was even a full row of seats occupied by an Amish family there to see their “jerked-over” children baptized.

I will be posting this weekend’s offerings all week because of the sheer volume of photos I was happy with.
