Dear friends, I have published a new WordPress Photography blog. The reason for doing so is because I can not separate my Ministry blog from my photography blog. That made it somewhat confusing and I like to have two separate blogs for various reasons. I will still keep this one alive, since I just renewed my domain name, but eventually, I will either delete it or do something else with it. If you are interested in looking at my new blog and possible follow that one, here is the link to it: http://media4lifephoto.com I hope to see all of you there. It will make it easier for me to follow and see your photographs. I am thankful for all of you and hope to see you on my new site. Sincerely, Freddy.

This little girls was dancing at Sunset time in Cardiff by the Sea. I thought of the very last Psalm:
Praise the LORD! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
Praise Him for His mighty acts; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet; Praise Him with the lute and harp!
Praise Him with the timbrel and dance; Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
Praise Him with loud cymbals; Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD! Psalm 150.
Beach lovers walking along the shore in Cardiff by the Sea. It was a very pleasant evening and people enjoyed the 72 degrees weather at Sunset time. Lot’s of surfers riding the waves and dogs playing at the beach.
I just love these kind of evenings, comfortable temperature and being able for just a moment to escape the everyday routine and noise of the city.
I love the feeling of the sand on my feet or the refreshing feeling of the water washing it away. It’s almost like a cleansing feeling. I am truly blessed and grateful to live by the ocean and so close to the beach in a city that many people spend thousands on, just to visit for a few days.
I drove down to Mission Beach, taking some pictures of the historical Roller Coaster there and ended up in Pacific Beach towards the evening. I was trying to get some Sunset shots. I’ve been to the place before and I had some good memories. So I figure why not. To capture the sunset at this time of year, I had to go down a stair case and make a right along the cliff.
The beach is not sandy at all, in fact there is nothing but rocks of various sizes all over the place. I stumbled around on top of the rocks and slipped several times, hoping nobody was watching me as I tried to get to the spot I had been previously and got some decent shots. Finally, I got to my destination and what you’d know, not a cloud in sight and the sun was just about 5 minutes away from disappearing below the horizon.
I noticed a few bumps and scratches on my leg and some blood on my big toe and figured, well, maybe I should head back to the stair case. On my way back, about half way down, I met a young man sitting on the rocks watching the sunset. We conversed for a little while and he told me that this area used to be a gunnery during World War II. I was wondering about all the concrete and other man-made objects that are scattered all over at that spot. After the war ended, the Government tore the whole thing down, thus so many remnants of the former gunnery.
Well, I made it safely back to the stairs and set up my camera to get at least a couple of shot for the night. Here is the one of the shots I got, a view towards Pacific Beach and the Crystal Pier. It was a pretty nice evening after all. I met some people at the place I was taking the picture and we had a pleasant conversation.
That is another reason I love to go out and take pictures, the scenery, the fresh air and the people who I meet on my outings. Always fascinating and exiting to talk to people and have some fun. Reminds of a time when things were like that, when people still had the time to say hi and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
