DSC_0770-1I’m going to let you in on a secret… one of the reasons I love taking pictures.  Are you listening?  I can capture hope.  I’ll say it again.  One of the reasons I love taking pictures is to capture hope.  You see, there is so much I get fed up with, grief stricken by, sick and depressed over.  Just watch the news and you know what I mean or look at the headlines for the last month.  But then… then there’s this…  young love, a budding flower, an unexpected smile.  I have to hold on to those things or I’ll be overwhelmed and grow cold.  I don’t want to grow cold.  Hold on with me.  (Taken at Venice Beach where someone ran their car into a crowd of people.)

“Because of the increase in wickedness the love of most will grow cold.” ~Jesus
