Don't talk. Don't say a thing.

Don't talk.  Don't say a thing.

cause your eyes they tell me more than your words

day 27

A leap of faith?

A leap of faith?




day 26.

This is my sister, Charis :) She's a bit of a dare devil :P
Don't you just love her wonderfully unique sense of style? hehe

I am so sorry for not being around much. I pretty much don't have internet right now. But this week I should have it set up.

Oh, for those of you who didn't know, I just moved out.


Live like a lion.

Live like a lion.

day 25.

I've been tagged numerous times, and I'll try and do them all as soon as I can. If I tag you it's because you're special. You don't have to do the tag :)

This one was from the lovely Rebecca :)

1. People who are obviously lost. They're down and depressed. They never smile. Living is just a terrible bother to them.
2. People who are lost but don't come across that way. They live perfect lives on the surface, but there's always something missing. Always trying to fill the void, temporarily succeeding, but never finding true happiness.
3. High schoolers. Hear me out. Many of my "Christian" friends went to public high school and came out a different person. And the change was not for the better. It seems morals are no longer important in this life. That makes me sad.
4. When people drift out of your life and you have no explanation as to why.
5. My own depravity.

1. When I hear a song i like in safeway. No really, it makes my day.
2. Dancing around with my siblings with this playing insanely loud.
3. When a picture turns out exactly like I planned it :) Or when it doesn't, but I like the result better than the idea I had at first :P
4. When you're doing an in depth bible study and you figure out something totally awesome that seems so coincidental but you know God planned it just like that ;)
5. The hope of eternity.

Oh, and as for the title, I just thought my hair looked, er, lion-ish :P And I'm feeling kind of wahooooy. If you know what I mean? :) :) :) :)

Oh, and can ya like my page on facebook??

Let me know if you have pages on fb too :) :)

Black and white or colour?

Give me an answer. Give me a way out.

Give me an answer.  Give me a way out.

day 21.

Give me the faith to believe in these hard times.

Give me something brighter
Give me something I can see
Give me something vicious
Give me something I can be
Give me all the love and peace
To end these wars
Give me something sacred,
Something worth fighting for.

It's clear enough to me
The ugliness I see
Is evidence of who I need.

Give me an answer
Give me a way out
Give me the faith
To believe in these hard times.

Give me motivation
Give me all my heart's desires
Show me something gorgeous
Show me 'til my eyes get tired
Give me all the drums and
Show me how to play them loud
Show me how to move,
When I can't feel that you're around.

We hide like thieves in shadows
Scared of the sun;
We know the light will find us
Us an all we've done.

I skipped a couple of days. But that's okay. Because I'm only doing it to motivate myself to take more pictures. And it's working. So no worries. :)

All I want is to be in the light.

All I want is to be in the light.

day 20.

I keep trying to find a life
On my own, apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I've got one for every selfish thing I do

What's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior

I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light

The disease of self runs through my blood
It's a cancer fatal to my soul
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring this sickness under control

I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light

Show me where to go Lord, give me wisdom. . .

I'm behind oh dear oh my what to doooo??

Saphi let me take some pictures of her the other day :)  I shot some film and tried out different lenses.  most of these were taken with the 75-300mm, which is fine if you have good lighting.  The sharpness leaves much to be desired though. . .

I'm behind on posting from my 365.  I'll catch up.  I've been shooting, don't worry.

The sun is shining, it's a brand new day.

The sun is shining, it's a brand new day.

day 18.
Yesterday's shot.
I was chasing the light and I got lost. I was looking up rather than down at my feet ;)
But I found some so it was all good.

I played some intense multiplayer games with my siblings earlier. First half life then counter strike. The latter was the best. . .Shem and I were the terrorists. I won't post our mission on here because the key words might raise some flags :P

Lift up your face.

Lift up your face.

day 17.

lift up your face
salvation is calling
salvation is calling (your name)

you have fallen so far now
you don't even know how
you are going to survive
but just over the horizon
a new light is shining
breaking through the darkest night
love is coming and it's calling out your name

life, could you be a little softer to me?

life, could you be a little softer to me?

day 16.
life, could you be more gentle to me?
I know this is a selfish plea
because Christ sacrificed his flesh on the cross for me
but this world is hard, it's cruel and I wish it could be...
softer to me

I struggle.

I officially missed a day of my 365. . .I was driving home yesterday thinking about what fun I was going to have shooting in the heavy rain/hail/thunderstorm we were having, when I was ambushed with a migraine so severe I had to spend the rest of the day asleep in a dark room. I don't even know how I managed to drive like that. God was looking out for me I guess.
Well anyways. I was obviously in no state to take a picture. Just thinking about it made my head hurt even more.
So that's that. Time to move on.

Sorry for being such a lousy friend lately. . .

day 15.

day 15.

I spent the day in Eugene (the land of hippies) with my best friend, Yona. We took lots of pictures and had fun doing it ;)
I guess it looks weird lying down in the middle of a parking lot, because we got some odd looks. But what do you expect, it's a weird place. 
"haha is that for a school project?"
"Uh, no, we're just having fun!"
"Oh, well sure looks like fun!"
Yeah. . .

I didn't really want to edit this shot; I'm afraid I'll ruin it.
