Once again, the people of Saint John gathered in Harbour Station to pay our respect to fallen heroes and our veterans. It was my fifth time there, it was just as moving as ever and the arena was filled to the last seat.
This picture was taken with my iPhone. Since I got in in June, I’ve tried to practice taking pictures every now and then. Sometimes they turn out good, but most of the time just ‘half decent’.
When I surf around the web I see so many, really awesome, photos, taken with the iPhone, so I guess it’s just me. When the light is really ‘right’, they turn out good … I shot this of city hall in my home town and I had some luck there. If they all turned out like this, it could easily replace any point-and-shoot camera.
So many people — at least in my circles — still use Instagram, and I have yet to realize its greatness. Every now and then I try it and I look at these filters they have there … I just don’t know… The other day, however, I was waiting down in the lobby, for Gerry to pick me up — he’d been out seeing his friends. Was just playing around with the camera, shot a picture through the window (!) and suddenly realized that particular photo would be suitable for one of those Instagram filters so I applied it. Here goes:
Apart from that nothing much is new here. Like I’ve mentioned before, Saint John comes to a grinding halt on Remembrance Day … nothing is open at all! Tomorrow is holiday because the 11th fell on a Sunday, but then the grocery stores will be open a few hours.
On the way back home from Harbour Station today, I finally decided to take a photo of these shoes that have intrigued me now for a few days 😆 They’re beside the road … sort of in the middle of nowhere!
