Love Her Smile

Love Her Smile

Love Her Smile

I had the privilege to share a conversation with this young lady at one of the local coffeehouses this past week. At times I felt like I was talking with someone much older than she was. There was a confidence in her voice about who she is and no need to try and play some role to impress others. There was enough comfort in our short time together to ask for a portrait. How about that smile!

 “Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”

“The resting place of the mind is the heart. The only thing the mind hears all day is clanging bells and noise and argument, and all it wants is quietude. The only place the mind will ever find peace is inside the silence of the heart. That’s where you need to go.”  Elizabeth Gilbert,

Sunrise

Sunrise on Campus

Sunrise on Campus

We have had some very pretty sunrises lately. I took this one this past Friday morning as I walked across the parking lot of the Lory Student Center on my way to Mugs Coffee shop for my fix. What was enjoyable for me in this image was the texture of clouds. Yesterday was lines and chaos, today was patterns and chaos. This is a jpeg file from the camera. All I did was bring out a touch of the blue.

Glad I Didn’t Wait

Took this image over a week ago while on campus. The recent winds of last week have blown most of the leaves into eastern Colorado and western Kansas. Glad I didn’t wait.
