Monastery of the Holy Spirit

Glorious Archangel St. Raphael,
Great Prince of the Heavenly Court,
You are a guide of those who journey by land or sea or air,
Consoler of the afflicted, and refuge of sinners.
Because you are the "medicine of God",
I humbly pray you to heal the many
infirmities of my soul and the ills that afflict my body.

The above is a piece of a prayer card I found in the gift shop.
I find peace somehow in it.

Punks Not Dead

80s Birthday Party Photobooth
My second attempt at a photobooth at a friends party. Had a lot of fun with it. Used a 35mm f 1.8 prime and that worked out much better than the zoom I used last time. Picked up some fabric at Joanne's but need to sew the second panel on to widen it just a bit. Def needed the second light but did not use it because this was just a fun quick shoot. Learned even more. The camera does tend to over heat quickly when rapid firing for a while. Need to look more into that. The remote worked better this time but that was the first thing to go once it overheated slightly. But alas here are some of the pictures of all the crazy people I knew when I was underage. Happy Birthday Robbie! Can't believe your 41! And I can't believe we all fit in our clothes from the 80's.
