Happy Easter!

So many of you know that Easter is one of the most important days of the year for Christians and there are many services during Easter week that Christians of all denominations participate in remembrance of the what Christ did for all. But one of the most moving services that Mary (my wife) and I attend is the Good Friday, Veneration of the Cross at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in midtown Sacramento. The service begins with the celebration of the Eucharist and then a huge cross is brought into the church where it is passed over the crowd where everyone has the opportunity to touch the cross symbolic of what Christ had to do as he carried His cross to Golgotha. After which the cross is laid on the floor of the church and people have the opportunity to step up to the cross, kneel, pray, and lay hands on the cross out of respect again to what Christ did for all in His death and resurrection. If you have never attended such a service, you are missing one of the most moving and emotional services of the season. Hope to see you at St. Francis next year on Good Friday. Halleluiah! He has risen!

Blog Neglect and WPPI

OK, OK... so I haven't updated my blog in a while.... like the whole month of February. I'm not very good at this blogging thing but I will try. As a matter of fact I will go back in time and update you on stuff I did in February (I was very busy).

But first I wanted to tell you about my trip to WPPI. It was great. I wasn't able to go for the business part but the open programs and trade show were awesome! Speaking of awesome check out our room for the trip. It was enormous! And the view was amazing. The trade show was crazy. There had to be a million vendors. Canon had by far the largest presence. Their booth was a block long. The had speakers every day (including Dennis Reggie) and were doing live shoots. They all their toys out too... including the 1Ds Mark III and the 1D Mark III... almost bought the 1D :-)... Anyway, check out the pics and come back soon. I'll have more posts.
