Logan Temple

June 11th, 2010

I’ve been waiting to get just the right picture of the Logan Temple. I mean come on, I live within miles of it and I got married there so it had to be more than decent! :D
Scott and I were driving home and I saw the clouds growing above the Logan Temple, looking like a storm was building right above it. I ran home and grabbed my camera and climbed up on my car (thank heavens for an SUV!) and with the clouds, the darker color in the skies and the flag blowing I found the shot I’ve been waiting for. I absolutely love how it turned out. Enough that I gave it to my parents for the 30th anniversary (they got married there, remember?) I think one of the only perks that we’re getting from this rainy and dark weather are the gorgeous skies!!
This print is also available for purchase.

Award Winning

April 1st, 2010

I was kind of bullied into entering the Black & White State Competition. I completely didn’t want to because I’ve seen work that has been entered in before and I did not stand a chance! But I entered anyways, conquer a fear ya know? I jumped and squealed for 10 minutes when I found out that out of 300 entries I was one of the 170 picked to be in the gallery! That was enough for me.
Scott and I headed to the gallery opening and imagine my surprise when Scott got a program and my name was listed as winning and Honorable Mention Award!! I was so stunned and in total disbelief. I mean how could I have been one of the 13 art pieces out of 170 to win an award, ? The whole evening I kept expecting someone to come up to me and say, “Sorry Leslie. We accidentally gave you the ribbon. Here’s a gift card to Burger King as a consolation prize.” But they didn’t. And I’m thrilled!

This picture was taken while I was on the Martin Cove Trek. We were finishing up the last part of walking into camp and a storm was quickly forming in front of us. This little girl had fallen on the trail earlier and scrapped up her face. While her dad held her and comforted her she eventually fell asleep on his shoulder, feeling safe and secure as we walked towards that storm. It was such a humbling moment being able to feel just a glimpse of what those brave souls felt as they stumbled along that trail.

Manti Temple

December 16th, 2009

The Manti temple is neat for us because we and my parents got married in the Logan Temple and the Manti temple is an exact replica of the Logan Temple. Another neat thing is Scott’s parents got married in the Manti Temple because they wanted to get married in the Logan but it was closed. So I took this picture for them as a gift. These are available to purchase as prints.
