What’s that you say? You’d like to see more phone photography from me? Well, if you insist…
While I usually prefer to only post the best of my best on this blog, I’m sort of using this as my trip log and in turn I am exposing my sometimes poor quality phone photography to you all. I’m assuming you’re not as picky as I am about such things and hopefully appreciate the glimpse of London these pics provide. After this post, I will have legit fancy camera photos to share… get excited! 🙂
Here’s another slightly lazy post much like the last one (from a photography perspective) as I had a few more days where I didn’t have my fancy camera along, but couldn’t resist taking photos anyway. Please excuse the less than stellar phone pic quality. I hope you can see past that to the great sights and experiences I’ve had this week. Here are a couple more days worth of photos and do stay tuned to some better quality posts coming soon!
I’m behind on blog posts (story of my life), but wanted to check in from my visit in the UK. Woohoo for Fall Break and a sister who lives in London! I’ve been out a few times without my fancy camera and haven’t had much editing time, so this post won’t have the highest quality of photos, but I figured you all won’t care about that as much as I do.
So here you have my first day in London, as seen from my iPhone. Fancy pics will be coming soon!
After church, we explored a bit before catching the tube back home.
In continuing some of my recent posts, I’m still going through old photos from my Southeast Asia adventure in the summer of 2012. During my quick solo trip to Malacca (aka Melaka) City, in Malaysia I had a great time walking around photographing to my heart’s content. It was great eating at a delicious Indian restaurant (where I’m sure I looked quite foolish, not knowing for sure how to properly eat what I ordered) and taking in the sight of the canal from the back patio of the hotel where I stayed. Here are a few of my favorite shots from that time.
As mentioned in my previous post, some photos from my Southeast Asia adventure in July 2012 got lost in the shuffle of life and I’m finally getting back to editing them. Here are some photos from my quick trip to Malacca City (aka Melaka) in the Malaysian state of Malacca, northwest of Singapore. I concentrated my exploration in the touristy areas of Little India and Chinatown. I feel like this post contains a bit of sensory overload, but then I remember that’s kind of what my first day was like there. I don’t have my travel journal or travel book with me right now, so I apologize for not having more details about what these sights are, but I do hope you enjoy these photo highlights!
I’m home in Pennsylvania for my spring break this week and had a wonderful time visiting my niece and her husband on Saturday and meeting their new daughter, Mira, who is just over two weeks old. You may remember Mira’s parents from their wedding photos a few years back. I couldn’t resist the chance to take some photos of this family of three during my visit. Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
Hi there! Welcome to my very random Friday blog post. I’m currently on spring break from teaching and I’ve had a chance to revisit some photos that I never got around to editing a while back. I just can’t bear the thought of having gone on such a fun adventure and not sharing the photos, so thanks for indulging me by checking out this throwback post…
Here’s some background: In June and July 2012, I had the awesome opportunity to travel to Southeast Asia as a recipient of a Lily Endowment Teacher Creativity Grant. You can learn more about the photography club I started and the great things I saw happening in Cambodia on the blog with much gratitude for the experiences the grant allowed me to have. One bonus of my trip was the time to travel to Singapore, visiting my cousin and her family. While there, I took a quick side trip to Malaysia, visiting the city of Malacca (also known as Melaka). When I returned from my southeast Asia adventure, my life got a little crazy, as did my photography business. I continued to teach, travel, and photograph, and found that time got away from me and I didn’t get to edit and share photos from my many adventures. So I’ve decided to revisit those photos and share some over the next few months. I hope you enjoy these somewhat outdated photos!
When I got off the bus in Malacca, I started to explore and was immediately drawn to this church, St. Peter’s. I think that after spending a couple weeks in Cambodia where Christian churches are uncommon, I found this church to be a novelty and enjoyed checking it out. While the date is somewhat in question, most believe that St. Peter’s was erected in 1710. I loved capturing the light pouring into the sanctuary and appreciated the more modern installation in front of the church remembering Jesus walking on water. I hope you enjoy these photos. More Malaysia photos will be coming soon!
