WISHING ALL MY BETTERPHOTO FRIENDS AND STAFF A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR FULL OF GOD'S BLESSINGS!!!

I don't do a lot of photography at night as I feel it is not safe. This Christmas image is from 2012 & it was raining so I had to hold an umbrella over my camera and myself, in 7km winds, using my glove on a low lamp post as a tripod. It was Dec 2nd & I met a young lady named Emma, who has had a profound & lasting impression on my life. Later I discovered she was a missing person & I've looked for her ever since & have prayed faithfully for her safe return to her family & friends. It was bitterly cold by the ocean that night & the dampness goes right through you. So I left for somewhere warmer & left Emma by herself thinking she was ok & just waiting for someone to meet her there. I wish I had known she was a missing person or my story would have a much happier ending!
