My name is Modesty, and I am seventeen (almost eighteen) years old. I am the fifth child in a family of eight. I have two older sisters, two older brothers, and one younger sister. I love the Lord and want to serve Him for the rest of my life.
I currently own two dogs. Princess Pansy - a Sheltie (she is about two and a half years old), and Belle - a Sheltie (she is about a year and a half old).
Photography - I have loved using cameras for years. First I would borrow my Mom's camera (it was a Canon). I would take pictures with it, and then edit them on the computer and mess around with them. About two years ago she bought a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 for herself. It worked really nice, and I loved using it to take pictures (anything from family members to flowers, to pets, things around our home, etc.). Just about two years ago I received a Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7K Digital Camera as a gift from the rest of my family - I LOVED it! It had a 10x zoom, a lot of different modes/options. It turns out that while I was sitting on one side of the table telling Mom how nice it looked, they were on the other side of the table ordering it for me! :) Since then I have upgraded to my mom's Panasonic Lumix, and hoping to soon upgrade to a Canon Rebel. My mom has a Rebel, and has let me play with the settings and I love how the pictures turn out. I had never had any lessons until quite recently I started a online photography class. I am loving learning about the different settings, options, etc.
For Thy Pleasure - I started For Thy Pleasure because I wanted to share different photos that I had taken, and I wanted it to glorify God. I chose For Thy Pleasure because Revelation 4:11 says "Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." I want these photos to not only bring pleasure to my readers and subjects, but also to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
