Any amateur photographer would agree that Edmonton has so much to offer for scenery and superb images. I did not need to look very deeply into the digital photos that I have captured, over the seasons, to find images that showcase the beauty that can be found in Edmonton.
There are so many great images that I captured in and aroud the city but I had to make some hard choices and selecting just one location for a focus made it a bit easier to select images to load into my video entry for the Edmonton Stories contest which went live at 5:00 pm August 5 and will remain open for voting until September 15, 2009.
I am extremely partial to the University of Alberta, this is where I have worked full-time since moving here from BC in 1999 and where I completed my BA and will complete my MEd from in two weeks time. As a location, it has diverse scenery that morphs magically through the seasons, so that at any point in time you can become intoxicated in it’s natural beauty. It is my community within the community and I chose to focus on some of my favourite images that I captured while practicing photography on campus. The natural beauty Edmonton offers makes learning photography an enjoyable hobby.
