Like many churches across the country, ours puts on a Christmas play featuring the children each year. Proud parents, relatives, and friends come to watch, many toting cameras of various kinds. Our daughters are grown now, but I used to be one of those parents with camera in hand, trying to get a record snapshot of our little star. Now I bring my camera in pursuit of a different quest, to get a single photo that captures the beauty of the performance and the event it depicts. Here is this year's attempt.
