World Poetry Day

“Poetry is language at its most distilled and most powerful.” – Rita Dove

In case you did not know, it is World Poetry Day! Today we celebrate all of the past, present, and future poets along with their work. Poetry is a big part of society as it is a form of art that can bring to light many different issues, and it also helps people to be expressive in an interesting and entertaining way.

Put some time aside and pick up a book, either to read someone else’s written creations or to try and come up with your own.

I know what I will be writing, as well as reading…

Favourite Photos

Lately I have taken many photos, and I just recently updated my image gallery here on my blog!

If you like photography I suggest you check that page out, but for this post I have decided to share some of my favourite photos with you, new and old.

My most recent favourite is this image, of an old camera I bought last summer. It is so bright and simple, and I associate many happy memories with it.

An image I am quite proud of would be this one. Last summer, I decided to take a photo of my fence in my backyard, focused and unfocused. I then fused the two photos together to create this effect which I was quite happy with.

Honestly, I am not entirely sure if I was the one who took this photo of The Louvre (or if it was one of my parents). Aside from that, it definitely is one of my favourite photos. This photo was taken in 2011 during a family trip to France, and it is one of my favourites because 1) what a beautiful colour scheme and 2) the trip was amazing, so was the museum. If you cannot tell, I would love to go back to France and Europe in general.

This image was taken on July 1st, not long before the Canada Day fireworks started. I took many photos that day but this one always stood out because of the colours (and of course the bokeh).
