What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Foto Friday


(Sorry for the delay in posting Foto Friday....it wasn't my fault. Really! I can totally blame Blogger this time!
)

Time to link up with your favorite photo(s) of the week. If you chose the challenge for last week it was FRIENDS.

I had plenty of opportunity to get FRIEND pictures this week as I went on my first ever (!!) double date, met up with another family to visit ( our first time ever!) circus and hung out with friends several times this week, among other things.

And yet- I rarely took out my camera and when I did, I didn't capture anything exceptional. (Hate it when that happens.)

Instead I give you a moment of serendipity that portrays FRIENDSHIP in an unexpected way:


I was driving along one day when we saw this biker chick ahead of us by a few cars. It took a while for me to realize there was a dog in the backpack and when we finally got close enough, we all busted up laughing when we realized the dog was wearing GOGGLES! I had just seconds to grab my camera before I turned, but the manual settings were set for an entirely different lighting situation so the original was REALLY blown out. I was glad I was able to salvage it with a bit of editing in Picasa.

And a favorite for this week:


a wee bit (okay, maybe a lot) overexposed, but I still love it.


What about you? Any favorites for the week? Link UP!





If you are looking for a challenge, this weeks challenge is.........

BEAUTY IN THE UGLY


And the winners from last week:

Winner #1: Life in the A-Frame


I love the perspective here, specifically that it seems the lizard is going to be climbing right into the camera at any second. I wonder if a macro was used for this shot?


I really love this suspended-in-midair shot. The boots and droplets are frozen in space (and perfectly focused!) and I think the reflection in the water is pretty amazing too.

Thanks to all who participated!
