Temple Teachings

About a week ago I was teaching a Young Women's lesson on the temple and wanted to give the girls a framed picture of the Boston Temple. The ones I had taken last Fall didn't print well so I sent Johnny up to the temple to take pictures for me. Trouble was, it was nighttime and it was raining. (And he was using a fixed lens because I dropped our other lens and broke it...) Despite all his limitations he did an amazing job. Johnny is getting pretty good at photography and I'm worried he's going to leave me in his dust. Either way, he took some great pictures of our beautiful Boston Temple. The last one is the one I framed for my girls. (Remember to click on the picture, if you want to see the bigger versions.)

Those look great! Isn't it cool that you can just run out and take pictures of the temple?

That's great - I know the YW really appreciate things like that to remember. I know how you feel about the Boston temple; we still feel like it's "our temple", even though we're far away!

WOW! Nice job Johnny. I love the first 2 photos and of course the last one of the temple. Emily, what a great gift for the YW girls....I bet they really loved it!
