Photo Contest

My city is holding an amateur photography contest. I tried shooting the city from a hill at sunrise, but the hill was in the wrong spot. I couldn't really get the sunrise and the city in the same frame. Should have stayed in bed. Then I tried going downtown to shoot some of the landmarks. I think I'll submit the last one, it has two landmarks in one and good representation of the French and English, something that the city is known for.

Messing with Design

This is just me playing around with text:

This is a card that Julie designed and I put together to give out to friends and family:

Kings Landing

Visited Kings Landing Historical Settlement a while ago. It's like a living museum in the form of a town with about 70 buildings. My favorite was the fully functional, water powered saw mill.

Powered Paraglider

After the balloon launch in the last post there was a Powered Paraglider demonstration. A paraglider is basically a large parachute, but can glide for a longer time then a parachute. A powered paraglider is a paraglider with a big fan strapped on the rider's back. This looked like a lot of fun. I've been parachuting a few times and thoroughly enjoyed it once the parachute opened and everything was alright, but the few seconds before that was a bit scary. I can feel my heart rate climb just thinking about it. Seriously, it's climbing as I type this. Paragliding seems like it'd be much more enjoyable for me, and you don't need a plane, 'cause you can start from the ground. I bet you could get some great pictures up there too!
