Best of 2010 in Black and White

As I stated yesterday these are not the best technically they are just my personal favorite shots throughout the year in B&W.  Yesterday I shared my favorite shots in color.

These were taken two days after Lilly arrived home from Ethiopia. I’m trying to figure out how to make a video of some really touching shots I took while visiting Korah and other places in Ethiopia.   Once I get it done I will post it here for you to relive it with me.  I will never forget the sights, smells and sounds of her country.   I look at these photos of her and can barely remember the girl I see in them.  She has changed so much and God has restored her heart in many ways…as ONLY He can!

I will never forget this scene as long as I live…a mother asleep with her naked child while the world walked by them – no one noticing her.  I did.  This sight changed me and I pray that it does in small way to you too.

The joy of a handmade soccer ball.  These two boys were so gracious and thrilled to have us spend a moment with them.

Every day these women wake up to walk over 15 miles sometimes 25 miles to sell their goods.  Every day.  To only make $1.00.   Can you imagine walking a mile in their shoes?  Would your joy remain full?

Before I left to bring home Lilly we had over 2 ft of snow.  It was still there when we got home!
