I am developing my photography skills (I'd like to call it skill and not just luck) as I am working on this blog. It's meant to go along with my coverage of communities and events in the local newspaper.
I have previously used a Sony Cybershot circa 2006, and recently upgraded to a Canon Rebel.
I hope people can enjoy this blog as a chance to follow my activities and the activities of the communities I cover.
I post photos, some new, some old, some just for the fun of it.
I went to a candle lighting ceremony Sunday night in Milton-Frewater. It was a to remember children who died in the community. It was cold and rainy, but once the service started it was worth the discomfort.
At the end, after everyone had spoken, there was an odd silence. Then Pastor Duane Geyer began singing "Silent Night." Everyone joined in. It was soft, simple and sweet. A memory I will cherish as a moment of pure giving and caring.
