The Young Face of Skiing

The swoosh, speed and grace of experienced downhill skiers is always fascinating to watch.  But what about the “skiers of tomorrow”?  I had a chance to watch (and photograph) some very young skiers getting their early learning at a kids ski school here in Breckenridge, CO.

Suzuki Strings Concert at Wheaton College

Each year, I have the chance to provide the photo coverage for the Christmas concert hosted and produced by The Community School of the Arts at Wheaton College . They currently are teaching 1500 students with the mission of providing “professional instruction in the Fine Arts to students of all ages and ability levels.” Their concert today was a joyous reflection of Christmas inspiration. On their website, there’s a great quote from a parent about the program: “I enroll my children in Suzuki Violin not because I want them to be a violinist, but for the life lessons.”

Sunday Service

Photography is often a 7 days a week opportunity, and this Sunday was one of those days and opportunities to help out in some important service and ministry projects.
