Two phrases stand out in my mind… “Diamond in the Rough” and “Stand ye in Holy Places.” I wonder how the two phrases can live comfortably together.
I took these pictures of my daughter as we explored the future temple (probable) site in Tucson. She isn’t a geologist, and doesn’t collect rocks… but the ones that were so white that they fought against the glow of the sun caught her attention.
As I mentioned in a post a few days ago, there were a lot of pictures that were in the running to be the ones I posted for that Family picture (of just the kids) I’ll post the one that actually made the cut.
I’m learning, in my photographic journey, that there’s a lot to learn, and as I that some of the things I want to do are going to take special equipments that I don’t have right now. That’s frustrating, but I’m going to look into it and see what I can do to make pictures that are just a little ‘more’ than these. I think I might also have to split this site into two so that I can post more of my pictures too.
For someone who belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) having a Temple is a big deal. (to put it mildly, click link to find out more!) Temples are incredibly important, sacred, and awesome!
In October, 2012, it was announced that there would be a Temple built in Tucson, and Latter Day Saints all over the area shouted out and cried with joy, often at the same time.
Not long ago, The Church unofficially submitted site plans to the county for approval on one of the possible locations. (It’s the only location that they submitted for approval from the county) and so, on a hot day in May (I’m in the desert, they’re all hot days) My young daughter and I went exploring the site that was proposed and sent into the county.
This is, pretty much, what we found. (with a little help from photoshop)
Vision of the Tucson Temple. (It’s rumored to use a similar design to the Temple in Tijuana. Which is where I pulled the Temple picture from.
