A Song for the Heart

Home: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
This is an awesome song. I heard it on the radio, and have been addicted ever since. It's so good. Pay attention to the spoken story in the middle. Really cool. Enjoy!

Photo of the Day: The Wild

Okay, so I don't often like adding text to my photos. As soon as I see (added in) text, I usually dismiss a photo's artistic merit. Although this still remains true, a photo mustn't always be judged solely on it's artistic weight. The caption added here increases the humor of this photo tenfold. It's a play off of Discovery Channel shows, using the optical illusion granted by the low POV and the grassy hill. The bus looks like it is hidden among the grass, not in a parking lot (which it actually is). As a light, amusing photo I quite enjoy it. If you do to, let me know.

Photos of the Day: Rush, and Bonds

I have a treat for you today. That's right, a two-for-one Photo of the day! We have here Bonds (the bridge one) and Rush (the street one). I took 'Bonds' this weekend in Sarnia. It is of the Bluewater bridge and the Michigan shoreline. Not too much to be said about it, so I'll move on. My other photo of the day is one I took just last night. It may look confusing but it is really rather simple. My sister ran through the frame (at my behest) creating an excellent amount of blur; just enough to establish her presence and stay just barely recognizable. Hope you enjoy them both.

So yes, I'm a tad obsessed with a childrens game...

That's right, another pokemon portrait. I know, a bit immature, but hell, it's one of my only vices. And how can you blame me? They just scream "Photograph me, Alex, Do it!" So I gave in. For those of you not 'with it' enough to know, that's Dratini in the foreground followed by Dragonair, and Dragonite. While the colours are less than satisfactory, I do like the theme, and the general 'look' of the photo. I'll see what I can do visa vi retaking it (fix my lighting, and probably a better background) and I'll keep you in the loop. Because it could always be better. For now, it's yours to enjoy.

If you like this, than you should go buy a Christmas Card! Last week, myself and a friend had a little photo shoot with the bells (for all of you not in the loop my church has a Bell choir, and yes I'm in it. It's pretty bomb.) We're going to use the photos as greeting cards (Spring and X-Mas themed) and sell them as a fund raiser. Aside from the photos being awesome, if you buy some it could help send us to a bell conference in a year. So go buy some. Seriosuly, do it.
