10 Year Anniversary

A couple weeks ago our community here at Cuvantul Intrupat (Word Made Flesh in Romanian) celebrated Bela and his 10 years of service. It was such a great evening as we ate Indian food, told funny Bela stories, watched videos made especially for him, and read letters written to him. We also gave him a gift: a DSLR camera that he'd been saving for and investigating the last 10 months or so. It was a joy to be able to surprise him with this gift...he never expected it! He also received an apron made just for him, the WMF bird in glass, and a t-shirt with a picture of our community on the back.

Here's some shots from the evening:
Our dinner together...and the handsome man.

The camera is a Nikon D90. I love it, and I'm still learning how to use all of the settings.
