King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers…or sometimes just because I really like them. It is a way of introducing my readers to blogs that they may also find interesting and edifying. Every two weeks (or so) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making the readers of this blog aware of other good sites.
This week’s King for a Week is called, quite simply, Tranquility and is owned and operated by Lucas VanDyke. If you’ve been to conferences sponsored by Grace Community Church (Shepherds’ Conference, Resolved, etc) you’ve probably seen Lucas. He is the guy with the expensive camera and all the really big and fancy lenses. And he is quite the photographer. His blog is a mixture of text and photography, words and images. The photos vary from studio shots all the way to landscapes and special events. He is in the midst of a special project in which he photographs beggars and recently went to Mexico City where he took some really amazing shots. He mixes these images with thoughts, reflections and other things that happen across his mind.
Incidentally, Lucas took the shot that is on my about page and which I’ve also chosen the “official” shot that will be used for my book, etc (since it is, after all, about the only photo taken of me that I’ve actually liked).
In the coming days you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to the site and look around.
I continue to accept nominations for King of the Week. If you have a site you would like to nominate, feel free to do so.
