As the Sun sets on another day in Brasilia, and as this year comes to a close I'm remind just how fast time and life goes by. To me, it seem like in particular these last few months have been the fastest of my life. A lot has happen in my life this year and I realize more and more that everyday is truly a gift from God. I pray that I will make the most of my time here on earth or as we say, Lord help me today while it is still called today. Living in Brazil, I take great joy in being able to help the poor as much as I can. They always seem so appreciative of the little things you do for them.
The world famous Ponte JK in Brasilia, Brazil, lite up at night with a splash of color for Christmas. Well, it Christmas time again. I actually always enjoyed the 24th or Christmas Eve the best. So, for me this is a time to reflex on the pass year. And what a year it's been for me. The good new is God (Jesus) is still on my side. I am comforted in the fact that my Mighty Savoir, the Prince of Peace and King of Kings, can never leave me, abandon me or hurt me in anyway. And that my friends is good news! As one of the lines to one of my favorite songs says "With Christ at my side I am Destined to Win." Blessings to all as we celebrate the birth of the True and Living God who came to earth to save us, forgive us, and give us an Abundant life to all who believe in Him. For it is written that every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of All.
The Torre de TV Tower in Brasilia, Brazil, lit up like a Christmas Tree as the sunsets behind it. One thing about shooting at night in Brasilia, at Christmas time is well, it's not cold. With tempertures at a pleasant 75 degrees it makes night time photography a joy. And yes this Tower is open to the public with a spectacular view of the city lights from above.
Sometimes while walking around looking for interesting thing or people to photograph I'll come across someone like this lady MariaJosé. To me the lines on her face told the story of a life that has been somewhat hard at times. She has five children that she hardly gets see and a husband that abandon her years ago. But, with all that she still manages to smile and has a great outlook on life. She actually made my day with her beautiful smile and kind words of "God bless you" as she left.
