This shot turned out better than I thought. I borrowed a railroad tie from my friend who was not there to help me load it in my truck. I only weigh around 144 I think the railroad tie weighs around 100 pounds and its probably around 7 feet. It really made me think how hard it was for Jesus to carry the cross.

The title "What If" came from a Christian song by Nichole Nordeman.

If you find it hard understanding the book, start with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I think its the easiest and most important!

My kind of shot. Whereas my attempt at something different and artistic in the Best Of 2005 challenge was voted less than average by no fewer than 40% of DPC voters, this fine attept should do worlds better. Incredible light, interesting idea, great tonal range and contrast and great textures. 10 from me, hope this does well. My choice for the Blue.
