And since, when a joyful thing happened, they looked to see whether joy was on her, it was her habit to build laughter out of inadequate materials....She seemed to know that if she swayed the family shook, and if she ever deeply wavered or despaired the family would fall.

Some nice lady asked if she could take a picture of us on our first real outing date.

Like all pictures of photographers it is slightly out of focus, but it's my favorite picture of us.

It's a picture of the kindest woman I know, a woman who would be a devoted mother, who would laugh and cry with me through unemployment and blessing, who would marry me in a backyard in an Amazon wedding dress because the world shut down.

Some nice lady took a picture of us on the day I knew I never wanted to be without her.

Happy Anniversary Sweet

And I think only of things that are very vague, 
Very vague and very pleasant, 
Like the tired look you walk around with 
Through this beautiful summer afternoon 
To the right, to the left, 
Here, there, 
In the delirium of uselessness.

And I think only of things that are very vague, 
Very vague and very pleasant, 
Like the tired look you walk around with

So many mids know this feeling in their bones. Thermo, EE, Nav, Chem...the studying never ends. My friend and classmate @easelonstribling took this photo and turned it into a true piece of art. Check out her page for the Yard through an artistic grad's eyes.

Halfway to the house Stan stopped and turned to Jane.
He put his hands on her shoulders and drew her toward him.
"I'm glad we're going steady," he whispered.
"So am I."
In spite of the reassuring weight of his bracelet on her wrist, Jane suddenly felt shy. It seemed strange to be so close to Stan, to feel his crisp clean shirt against her cheek. She could not look up at him. Gently Stan lifted her face to his. "You're my girl," he whispered.

So Mowgli went away and hunted with the four cubs in the jungle from that day on. But he was not always alone, because years afterward he became a man and married.

But that is a story for grown-ups.

So, we've been enjoying our state enforced honeymoon staycation for the past week, but I guess it's time to make it Instagram official. We decided to do a small elopement at our most wonderful of wedding photographer's house ( @victoria.selman ) last week (don't worry we kept it under 10 people present to keep it legal)

Pastor Amir Nafa climbs a staircase to the living quarters of a family in his congregation on Christmas Eve in Sidfa, Egypt.

With an average monthly income of $125, and restricted from many jobs because of their faith, Christians in the lower Nile region of Egypt frequently live indoors with their animals.

On the OrthodoxChristmas Eve this family celebrates in a home containing a donkey, cow and manger.

2019 brought my busiest wedding season, some opportunities to shoot Navy sports @navy.spirit , travel to Prague and Lebanon and my personal favorite... Getting out of the Navy.... And getting engaged @jessk42

Tomorrow I head to Egypt to document the persecuted church for a week, with Honduras on the docket for late summer to document a Catholic orphanage charity. God was incredible in 2019, I can't wait to see what happens in 2020.

Sometimes as a photographer I get to something special for some wonderful people. The Blade family have been neighbors of ours for 3 years and in that time have become like family. In this crazy world, we have keys to each other's houses, Audie will walk next door and hang out with them and more than once they've just asked if we want to eat dinner with them. @lizzy.blade has been our babysitter since she was 16 and is basically his sister at this point. We've laughed, cried, prayed and complained together.

Get to know your neighbors, you may just find that family lives next door @ Annapolis, Maryland

But the thing about remembering is that you don't forget.

Tim O'Brien, The Things They Carried

--

On the P-3 we had a rudimentary missile warning system that was originally designed for low flying helicopters. The high tech "bug eye" cameras positioned around the aircraft were worthless at altitude where the reflection of the moon could trigger a missile launch warning in the cockpit. In typical P-3 fashion, we would station observers at the windows on a rotating basis, their sole job to keep an eye out for the telltale flash of a surface to air missile launch and call for a countermeasure release. A man could become well aquainted with his soul staring off into the endless brown of the African landscape, or watching thousands of campfires below in the blackest of nights.

At the Mashouk refugee camp in Tyre, Lebanon, you will find children from age 3-15 in the same classroom. A small whiteboard hangs on the wall showing basic Arabic characters and words. Most of these children have never been to school, and it shows. A mild atmosphere of chaos rules as the one teacher raps a ruler on a desk in a vain struggle to maintain order. War in Syria has raged for over 8 years making in the only constant many of these children have known, and it's effects will stretch generationally.

In Tyre, Lebanon, there are dozens of camps housing Syrian refugees. If you are like me, you probably pictured a large open field with UN tents stretching over the horizon. In fact most of these camps are in junk strewn backyards in urban areas. Children of all ages sit in a tiny room and learn a lesson...3 year olds and 13 year olds learning the Arabic alphabet.

We interrupt the usual literary posts for some real talk. My sister took this picture of me in Prague and commented that I looked tired. You may have noticed I've kind of dropped off the map with my photography. I've still booked a few weddings this year, but the pace of my life has reached a frenzied peak. Between construction projects at my house, working as a social media manager, VR filmmaking, teaching at the academy, being a dad, being a board member at a non-profit, freelancing and transitioning out of the Navy...it's a lot

A theme I've been seeing a lot in my life recently is Sabbath. Taking time for myself, to care for my body, mind and spirit. It's not easy. I love taking advantage of opportunities but it comes at a cost. Rudyard Kipling said "more men are killed by overwork than the importance of the world justifies."

So here's the deal. I'm making a commitment to pour into myself creatively. You may see some out of the ordinary shots here, you may see new compositions, cool stories or different colors. Enjoy it, give me feedback...I'd love to hear an outsider's opinion on the things I've wanted to test out. It's how we grow.
