Let us put our lives in order
that we might not be distracted.
Let us simplify our lives
that we might dwell on the eternal.
Or let us instead embrace
life’s hurly-burly cacophony,
fly along this day’s
pinball paths,
and let the Lord
rack up the points.

Nice job! These photos are so fun to take, you never know what you’re really going to get. Changing up the shutter speed and the pan speed gives you a completely different look…
