Makayla Massey Senior Photo Shoot for 2013

I so rarely do senior photo shoots, but somehow I ended up doing two within two weeks of each other this summer. This is the first one with Makayla who is entering her senior year next week. Even though I don't get to do many of these shoots, I love the personal attention and time…

Good Friday Confessions at the Cross :: Photos

Last night was our Good Friday service, one that contained a combination of worship and examining confession at the foot of the cross. It's hard to put into words what that means, and Brian said it best when he told everyone that the cross speaks for itself, and it does. There really aren't words that…

A Night of Communion, Prayer, Meditation, and Confession :: Photos

Last night was the Cornerstone Church Maundy Thursday gathering, a time spent in prayer, communion, Christian meditation, and confession. This night was much different than last year, in many ways much more simple. This year a big part of looking forward to tonight, Good Friday, was to look at our own sin, and practice confession…

A Photographic Look at the Faces of Uganda :: Part 2

This is part two of a post I did last week (part 1) on the faces of Uganda. This set of images was a quick project related to the kids at African Renewal Ministries (ARM), which is the ministry group in charge of the sponsor child program we work with at Cornerstone Church. This is…

A Photographic Look at the Faces of Uganda :: Part 1

Today I finally had a chance to process some more photos from the shoot in Uganda. These were specifically pulled out for the kids, and there were way too many to put into one single post so I broke this up into two pieces. I'm not sure what preconceived stereotypes you have in your head…

The Four Fillmer Boys as We Welcome Luke into the World

Well one down and one to go. Today we welcomed baby Luke into the world today at 10:07am in Longmont Colorado. Luke weighed in at 8 pounds and measured 21 inches and seemed to be totally at peace with his own existence within a few minutes, hardly even cried except when various nurses jolted him…

Friday Night Auburn Lights Photo at Jordan-Hare Stadium :: Friday Feet

It's the Friday night before the first Auburn football game and it's become sort of a tradition with Deborah and I to walk around downtown and eat dinner while we watch all the "out of towners" stroll in. Last year it was Hamilton's on Magnolia, this year it ended up being a very crowded Mellow…

Amsterdam Airport Photos and a 50mm Lens :: AMS-EBB

This is a continuation of my series, airports and a 50mm lens. Since I was in Europe this time I didn't really get quite a much material as I normally do in a place like Atlanta. For one thing, once I get outside the United States shooting [photos] in an airport isn't quite the same.…

Atlanta Airport Photos and a 50mm Lens :: ATL-AMS

I have this random series I have done on my blog for years called "airport in 50mm" that looks photographically at a particular airport with just a 50mm lens. I did this for this last trip except for the airport in Entebbe where I wasn't sure if I would get shot by the guy holding…

Southern Drought No News Wants to Cover :: Friday Feet

We have been in this drought for some time now, it seems like years, because it has been. For about the last 5 years or so we just have not had any steady rain at all. The best evidence of the drought, at least on our property, is our pond. This is basically a 2…
