Here's looking at you, Kid.

Well I am sorry to say that this is my last post for this blog. Somethings have happened in my life, and I have started changing my life, getting rid of old, doing other things.

Last month my father past away from cancer, and from them, I have just lost allot of my drive in life, and to be honest, allot of the time I just want to say f!!K it. Not really sure what is next for me, will I finally grow a pair and follow the path that God has for me, or will I just sit in the corner and cry about why is everyones life better than mine.

Here is the good news, even thou Blog Spot has been really good to me, I never could get the layout that I really wanted, so I moved over to Tumblr. You can book mark that page and continue on watching my life play out.

Real quick, THANKYOU to everyone that ever left a post or ever just looked at my work, I am very greatfull.

Now lets begin the next Chapter.

The high flying Ben

One afternoon, I was finally able to sit back and relax, then my phone rang. On the other side was one of my youth group kids asking if I wanted to come to his dive comp. I was excited for one that my youth group is awesome and wants me at their events, and two I have never been to a dive comp. He then told me I had 45 minuets to get there before it started. So I grabbed my camera and here are some of the shots. The only time I didn't take pictures of his dive because of a phone call, he back flopped, darn.

My youth group is Awesome

The kids know that when they want pictures all they have to do is ask. One of the girls in my church youth group asked me to help out with one of her school projects. So, last week she met up with me with her brother and had a awesome time working on her school project. The funny thing about my kids, they are always like, this is what I have to do with my project, what do you have in mind for pictures. This is one of the outtakes that I liked.

The church at Stanford

Again from my trip a couple weeks ago to Stanford, I was walking around and found this court yard, and this church in the court yard. I had no idea that this was here. After being here, it is by far one of the coolest churchs that I have been to.

I call this shoot, "You know I am going to take a picture, you saw me, but you still wont move out of the way, now you are going to be in it."

Dinosaur point

While I was driving up last week to Stanford, I found this place along a lake called dinosaur point. I have no real knowing why it is called that, but the water was very high that day, awesome time.

the gate

One of my favorite things to do when I go to Stanford is to go to the art museum. It is a pretty legit place, but the cool thing about the place is they have pieces of Rodin's art in the court yard. My favorite piece that Rodin ever did is called "The Gates of Hell."

The reason why I love this piece so much, (because his other work is only alright), it is also a reminder of what I will never have to see, deal with, or be afraid of. This being the Easter season, I am so thankful to Jesus for dying for my sins, and saving me from the gates of hell.

It has been a long time, Sorry.

Yes, I know that it has been a long time for me to go with out posting something. I am sorry to do that. Not much really I can say, my dad has still been fighting cancer and things are different now. A couple weeks ago he resigned from being pastor at Lakeside community church for over 21 years. He has been in the hospital twice, and he is in the hospital as I type. On Monday, my Uncle drove my parents up to Stanford to get some more tests, but my dad got admitted instead. So, I had to drive the car up for my parents, and spent today walking around the Stanford campus, holy freaking awesome. That is where this shot comes from, but more on Stanford later, it is late and I still want to play some video games. More will come.......

Good days... Bad days

My father has been having health problems from his battle with cancer. He is now cancer free, but the cancer did leave a big big mess. So for about the last two months I have been going to my parents house during the day to help take care of my father while my mom goes to work. His recovery has been going so slow that it seems like this is my life now, which kind of sucks, I thought I would only be there for like two weeks tops. It is not all bad as it seems, I watch awesome classic movies with my dad, and sometimes he lets me bring a kung fu movie into the mix. He has been able to get up more easily and has been encouraged to walk around more, so on a good day he was having, he walked over to the church. This happened on the only day I brought my camera last week. I have no idea what my father was think in this picture, but I like to think that this is my father sitting, and praying for the church that he loves so dear and also misses so much. In a couple of weeks (sometime around April), it is my fathers 21 years anniversary of being pastor at Lakeside Community Church.

This one for the birds

I have been spending allot of time at my parents house looking after my father while he freaking slowly recovers from his health problems. After not even holding a camera for a long time, I decided to take it with me yesterday to shoot around the house. These wooden birds were made by my grandfather, and have been there for a long long time. Somehow seeing these birds always reminds me that I am home, and to answer your question, yes, they where used for target practice when my brothers and I first got a bb gun.
