Photos on the New LDS.org Website

San Diego Temple Flowers
I have been participating in the Official LDS Church Call for Photos on flickr. I was pleased to hear at least one of the photographs I uploaded has been used. The temple flower photographs were taken by Jake and he had me upload them to flickr along with photographs of my own. Today I got this email from the Audiovisual Department of the Church:

We wanted to make sure we let you know that at least one of your photos was used on the new.lds.org. The designers are still compiling some of the pages, but your photo of the San Diego temple appears on the Temple homepage. You can find it here: http://new.lds.org/church/temples
Thanks again for sharing so many wonderful photos with the Church.

This is what the temple homepage looked like in October 2010. It was thoughtful of the Audiovisual Department to send me the email and it was appreciated. If you have a few photographs that you are particularly fond of, upload them to the Church flickr group pool. They will then be made available for use on Church Internet sites — as demonstrated.

Update

Photographs are now contributed through Helping in The Vineyard.

15 Resplendent Temple Flower Photographs

Lo! in the desert the flowers are springing;
Streams, ever copious, are gliding along.
Loud from the mountaintops echoes are ringing;
Wastes rise in verdure and mingle in song.

Jake took photographs of the many flowers on the temple grounds while on our recent California Temple Trip. The weather was very agreeable for man and bloom. I don’t know the names of these flowers, just the temples where they were nurtured.

15 Beautiful Temple Flower Photographs

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

On our recent California Temple Trip I took many photographs of the temples. Meanwhile, Jake was busy in the temple grounds photographing the flowers. I don’t know the names of these many blooms, just the temples where they were nurtured.
