temple reflected in a building…

i was born in utah.

that being said, every time i go back, i’m always amazed at how beautiful it is there.  the mountains are so close to the city… on the numerous occasions i’ve driven through (most of) utah, i thought all of it was beyond worth watching out the window for hours.  i spent a lot of this most recent trip completely lost.  but once someone dropped the hint that temple square is the starting point, having 4 streets all with the same name (in a square) going out from there, i started to catch on.

every time i’ve walked the square, there’s always been a wedding party at the temple… no bride and groom this go around, but the trees really struck me.  they’ve always been in full leaf, and being there when they were bare… was striking for some reason.  they’re absolutely lush when covered with leaves…

    That first photo is so dramatic. So much could be read into that image. It’s a great visual for how modern religion and spirituality is viewed; no matter what people believe, it’s hard not to agree that we are in stormy times, and any little beacon of hope, whatever it may be, is a good thing.
