Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
A redeeming moment for Bethel. In our travels between the airport and pilot houses where we are working, we passed the familiar gold onion-shaped domes so identified with traditional Russian architecture. Under the domes a red roof and the white walls of St. Sophia’s Russian Orthodox Church in Bethel, Alaska. I have found something of beauty and it shines through the weary, greyed buildings and homes.
The congregation filled with beautiful native faces. In a small, tired-looking universe, a sign both bright and hopeful—luminoso e pieno di speranza.
