2012 – Comic Creators For Freedom

January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day here in the U.S. The Comic Creators for Freedom drive will be starting the drive on Monday, January 9th through Friday, January 20th.

Comic Creators for Freedom is a charity where webcomic creators from all over the world are working together on a single drawing which will be available as a downloadable wallpaper for readers who donate to the fund raising drive! Donations will be split between Love 146 and Gracehaven. The two charities that fight against human trafficking and support victims.

This is my contribution that will be apart of a much larger image of other comic female characters in an epic snowball fight.

2010 Wild River State Park

It has been a while since I posted some camping pictures. So here we go. With my new Canon Rebel XSi, with a 35-128mm, macro capable lens, I took a bunch of pictures as Minnesota’s Wild River State Park. I was along with my friend Melissa, as she also took pictures.

This was my first real field experience with my camera; though I took a bunch of backyard shots at my parents, which I may also upload, but this is the first real dive. There are a few shots with a 70-300mm zoom/macro lens, but I found the other to work much better for the range I was in.

I ended up trimming down the pictures I would normally post here. Picking more of the better shots. I also have a couple of alternate shots of the same scene because I kinda liked both. Still learning aperture and f-stop settings.

On this trip, I also went for a canoe ride, that lasted 2.5 hours (paddling the whole way). … Didn’t put enough sun block on my legs, and got burned up! No fun! Anyway, lots of pictures of flowers, bees, and butterflies! Posted these up on Flickr instead of this site.
