The Classics

I figured it was time to resurrect some old photos. Archipelago has (I'm pretty sure) never repeated a photo. But why? I'm sure most of you haven't read my first few posts, which contain some of my absolute favourite photography. So I figured I'd dig up a couple really old photos for your viewing enjoyment.
The sepia toned photo is one I made last winter, with the melted snowflakes on the car window blurring out the light coming in from the streetlight. The colour-crazy one I made earlier this year. It's an HDR of my sister reading in a tree. I made it for a project, but I put so much work into it, I found I really did enjoy the final result. The final photo, I made a very long time ago-2 years. I made it with my old camera (a Canon Elph) and edited it with some very basic free online software, but I still love it. It's got a very cool vibe to it.

Going LoCo!

This year I, as a representative of the Youth at my church, attended the 87th annual meeting of the London Conference of The United Church of Canada. In Sault Ste. Marie. So basically, all the business and policies for the United churches in southwestern Ontario and Algoma. There was a lot of business, and a lot of worship, and a ton of fun. The youth got to hang out all weekend and get up to all sorts of shenanigans. Including 5 of us eating a whole ice cream cake, doing a lot of swimming, 2 12-hour bus rides, and a bunch of other stuff. The first photo was our last worship and the second was the view of the hotel we stayed in; with a Ferris wheel, a telephone pole and a seagull silhouetted. These weren't the average photos of the weekend, but most were of people that I did not have permission to use the photos of. I thought these were nice though.
