Allow me to do a little reminiscing.
For today's post I have picked a few of Jake's old slide scans.
Jake was always looking for a new challenge,when it came to photography.
Night shots are a challenge,but one which Jake enjoyed.
Here are two shots taken in Calgary,Alberta.
I recognize the Calgary Tower in the first picture,but have no idea just where the next one is,except that it is Calgary.
This next picture is a partial Lunar eclipse.
I know that Jake took several eclipse shots over the years.
Of course,sunset pictures are always special.
I happen to like this one,but could have chosen any of a number of pictures.
Jake enjoyed taking pictures at sunset.
I look at these images and remember a man who loved life and had so much to share.
The final image is one of a comet.
This one was taken on a very cold night,I remember because I was right there with him.
I do not remember the name of this comet,but it was fairly easy to see and photograph.
As I spend time looking at these pictures,I have tears in my eyes.
Oh how I would love to go out and spend time taking pictures together with Jake.
This is now only a memory,but what a special memory it is.
I have always known that making good memories was important,but now I realize just how important it really is.
Take the time today to do that special something with the ones you love.You will never regret these moments.
The thought for today is a verse that has become very meaningful to me.
When you pass through the waters,I will be with you;and when you pass through the rivers,they will not sweep over you.
