I was hoping for some in the photos section, but that seems like it's been dead for several years, so photos in this thread will certainly do :)

If you have any to share, I'm sure someone will find the time to post them.

Let's just devote this entire thread purely to Liza's photos. Breathtaking! Please, please, publish these in a book! Your photos alone can bring many people to Orthodoxy. So powerful. Thank you Liza!

Liza,

WOW.  You have a God-given gift.  These photographs are like Poetry.

Please, please, please, contact an Orthodox publisher and get them published in a book or something. 

Often I go to the Religion section in Barnes and Noble and there is basically nothing on Orthodoxy.  (Why is that????)  Your pictures speak volumes about Orthodoxy, the quiet peacefulness, the love of God, the contemplation of God's wisdom, the seeking nature of our souls, the joy.......  You should publish a book on the Orthodox experience in America, with all of your pictures of various settings to show more than what mere words can express.

Again, WOW.

:angel:

...a few candle shots.  I LOVE candles!

By the way, most of these are from Vespers services, that's why it's often rather "dark".

I've been waiting impatiently all day for my church to upload pictures from last night (I was a banner-carrier!). Nothing yet :(.
