The heat was in the air and the lovely breeze from the beach was welcoming. The little sparrows darted everywhere as I tried to take a shot. A moment of rest on the wing gave me an opportunity and I accepted.

Hunting birds in my youth was big thing for me. It was me against the wild. I became very clever with the gutterperk (slingshot). My mastery of the gutterperk was so good that I often predicted where on the bird’s body I was going to hit.

But I never hunted sparrows. They were just too small and lovely. Thankfully, I no longer hunt birds. The camera has now become my gutterperk.

Church was a part of growing up. And no matter if you disliked the clothing or the fact you had to go to Sunday school, it was all irrelevant as far as my grandmother was concerned.

It is funny that when I was a kid the home I grew up in was a two denomination (religion) house. While my younger sister, my cousin, and I attended The St. Michael's Cathedral Church, my sister and my older cousin went to St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral.

Having no idea of loyalty we would on some occasions skip going to the Anglican Church in favor of the Catholic Church. Needless to say, my grandmother never knew of our little indiscretion.

Today I can admire this beautiful structure called St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral. In 1848 the original Cathedral built but in 1897 it was ruined by fire. The Cathedral as it is today was rebuilt in 1899, and its consecration was on August 23, 1903.
