f1.7 dof

By Photos No Comments

Some of you will be wondering what on earth that tile means and i will do my best to explain:  I’m thinking of setting myself another challenge/series to do with taking some better photos.

My Photo of the day has been going really well so far with only a handfull of missed days but I notice that occassionally the photos are a bit crap. I guess it’s easy to spot the days i’m being less creative. The other side of this is wantiing to use my SLR more. I’ve got a great lil camera that my wife bought me and it doesn’t get enough use.

So what i plan to do is use my prime lens that goes down to a f-stop of 1.7 which means that I can great depth of field which means the focus gets blown out in the background which means cool photos!!!!

I’m not sure how it’s gonna pan out but watch this space!!!

TLP: Your will be done

By God One Comment

Matthew 6:9-13 (New International Version)

9“This, then, is how you should pray:
” ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us today our daily bread.
12Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.[a

So God gave us this prayer which is commonly known as: The Lord’s Prayer. I sometimes find that when i hear that i instantly get bored. I imagine some boring person going on and on and on about irrelevant rubbish and i want to go to sleep. It’s such a shame cause this prayer really is sooo much more than what most realise it to be. Taking each line independently can make this prayer become a great prayer. Currently there are a few lines in this prayer that really ring true for me and how i am aiming to lead my life.

your will be done

The fundamental idea behind this line is that we want God to have his way in our lives. Seeing as God designed everything to be a certain way, it makes sense to let him have a say in how we do life. It makes sense that he would have a better idea on how things should work and how to do it right.

So that’s what i have been trying to do. It takes practice and its sometimes hard but it’s been working very well so far. The promises we have from Him mean that living life this way can only have a great outcome.
