Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Temples

I have been contemplating doing a Temple Photo Blog since I started this blog. I am at work so I don't know if i have all of my Temple photos here. I decided this morning that it was time to get started on it.
First we have the Mesa, Arizona Temple. This was taken in April 2007. It was an overcast day so I thought I would change this one up a bit. 2 years prior Marissa and I had been there. It was an incedibly clear day in February. Unfortunately I did not have a digital camera yet and the film ended up with streaks on it due to the x-ray machines. I should have taken the lead bag. All I can say is, thank goodness for digital cameras. (Maybe I will write a post completely on why I love digital cameras...)Then we have the Seattle Temple in Bellevue. As far as we could tell they were cleaning the Temple. There was also scaffolding on the side. Here is one thing that I have serious issues with...Moroni faces to the west! Yes that is correct, to the west. I do not understand how this is so. Does anyone know why? Some of my photos you can tell I have not done anything fancy schmancy to. The Temples are just so beautiful and the days happen to be so perfect that I see no point in changing anything on them. The Manti Temple is one of those Temples. The limitations of only having a point and click camera in that we were unable to get a photo of the entrance of the Manti Temple including the incredible flowers. "Our" Temple is the Draper Temple. Sure we were married in Salt Lake but we have been a part of the Draper Temple from the day the ground was broken for it. We haven't been by recently and probably should. These photos were taken the day Moroni was put into place. I personally have not taken any photos of the Salt Lake Temple. I suppose I should get on that. Along with all of the other Utah Temples I have at my disposal. Maybe I will make a run over to Timp during lunch today....maybe.

So the Manti Temple pictures are gorgeous! I need to go down in the winter time and get a photo of the temple so it will remind Jeff and I of our wedding. Beautiful skies, snow on the ground and little bit chilly!
