Photography: I guess it’s no secret my favorite hobby is photography. My photography is a way to share my experiences with others. I want my photos to capture the essence of a very particular moment in a way that makes the viewer feel they were a part of it. I chose to make photos of images that capture the beauty in life, maybe finding an angle that makes a common view different or showing a detail that most miss. When I do a portrait, it’s a candid shot of someone doing that thing they love.
Pho Tai: Vietnamese beef noodle soup. Probably my favorite of all soups. We have a great little “hole in the wall” restaurant in town and we visit at least once a month for a late lunch that lasts the rest of the day.
Patches: My childhood pet and best friend. Son of my dad’s English Pointer and a big, sneaky neighborhood dog, we bottle raised him from 2 days old. The photo distorts how big he really was since he was standing on a slope and about 3 feet from me (yes, I’m the one holding the baby – who just happens to be Little Hoss and Little Bird’s mama!).
Peeps: Peeps chicks are an Easter time tradition around here. If Himself is still on the ship over Easter, I buy extra to share with him when he gets home. Only yellow and only chicks.
Pick-Up Truck: Our work horse! Little Red has taken us many miles on road trips, hauled a lot of treasures, and been used in a lot of mission works.
Packrat: OK, I confess… my name is Teri and I am a packrat. But I’m doing my ‘12 Step’ program and am fairly well reformed (Best Friend has permission to smack me if I pick up any more cute picture frames or jars).
Paintings: When we travel, we try to pick up an original piece of art to bring home. We have a fairly nice collection. This one came from Kenya. Himself brought it back from one of his military trips. Does the man know how to shop, or what!?
Purple: Favorite color! I like shades that are rich in color and not muddy. Not pastel either.
Pipes: Great Highland Bagpipes to be specific. While the Scots didn’t invent them… in my opinion they perfected them! I can listen to them all day. A few years ago I was able to go to a concert of The Black Watch Pipes and Drums. Wow!
Pirates: Pirates of the Caribbean, that is! How can you not love CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow? Best Friend’s 2 boys and I have seen every one of the movies together. They are Pirate 1 and Pirate 2. I am The Pirate Queen. And they’d best not forget it! LOL
