Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background


This week’s photo challenge is to take a picture of yourself as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of the scene, making the background the foreground, the center of attention.

IMG_20130509_082857Two weeks ago, a film crew came from the USA to film us for a popular TV show. Although it looks like we were the center of attention…we really weren’t! The focus was on the background: the many talented local people, our background story of searching for a place where we could be totally immersed in a local culture, the spirit of paying forward the many blessings we have received, and daily life on our oasis of peace. Our backgrounds influenced who we are, but cultural immersion changed who we have become.
