Sunday's Thought

(C) Allen Pearson

God loves you in ways that no one else can. The depth of His love in unfathomable going beyond your wildest imagination ... It goes deeper than your spouse's love for you or your fiance or someone you are dating or that of a BFF .. Best Friend Forever.

God gave His Son Jesus to die for your a sin's so that you will have everlasting life with Him in heaven.

Timeless Thursday- Red Fall Colors

"Red Fall Colors"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved
"Red Fall Colors" is one of my favorite images which I created while learning to love the Fall season.  What got my attention is the red leaves against the dark bark of the tree.  The day had been rainy which brought out the colors intensity.

The beauty of Fall's colors can be found as close as your own backyard or a local park.  While driving to the mountains can be an awesome trip, that's not always practical.  Go hiking or for a walk through a local park.  I captured this image near the parking lot of a golf course.

What unique places have been able to capture your favorite images? Please share in the comments below.

Dog Photography! "Weimaraner Perspective"

"Weimaraner Perspecive"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved

When I go on a photography shoot whether its to support a local dog or cat rescue or for a client, I like to photograph the dogs from every perspective I see.

After learning about a client's dog and the photographs they would like to have, I will work to create images which will remind them of their beloved companion for many years to come.  Sometimes these are created at the pets home or a favorite local park. I will stay away from dog parks because there are too many distractions.  

As I am photographing the dog, I will shoot from different angles being as creative as I'd like. If I think I've gotten some "artistically creative" images that I might want to share with the client, I will let them know so if our "tastes" don't match up, they won't think I am too crazy.

An excellent aspect of being creative while shooting is capturing something you enjoy and can do on other shoots.   Always remember, you can be as creative as you like as you can easily delete unwanted files.

"Whoever believes in the Son, has eternal life; 
whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, 
but the wrath of God remains on him." - John 3:36 ESV

God has given us a wonderful gift-  His Son Jesus Christ and the gift of eternal life. All we have to do is accept His Gift of Salvation.

Photographing The Seasons: Fall's Coming

"Fall's Coming"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved

Thanks to one of my friends, I've learned to see the beauty in the cooler season of Fall. Loving the Spring and Summer as I do, the Fall season meant colder weather was on its way and time to hibernate for 6 months!   It still does in some ways, but not as before.

I love to walk through the woods particularly a trail through Walney Park or at Great Falls National Park and capture the leaves changing colors for the season.  Sometimes, if you look closely, you see leaves in mid-change.

Friday's Foto! Coal Train Through West Virginia

"Coal Train Through West Virginia"
(C) Allen Pearson, All Rights Reserved
I seem to be hooked on photographing trains here lately.  I think a lot of it is I have the time to take up my interest, photograph, and pay more attention to them.

The coal train is a symbol of my youth and days spent with my grandmother and grandfather in the small town of Marmet, WV.  My grandparents really didn't have much but they always had what they needed and were comfortable.

My brother and I weren't spoiled by them with lavish gifts, but with the treats of going to see them and seeing the trains.  A front porch faced the mainline of the B & O Railroad which provided quite a bit of fun for fun- sometimes even through the night- but, don't tell grandmother!

To share my interest in Railroad Photography and allow the purchase of prints should you be interested, please visit Allen Pearson's Photos.
