Too busy to write. Here are some pics from our weekend away last weekend. Simon Manchester preached from John. It was excellent.
This past week K and I had a couple of days to get away for a short break. We decided to head into the wild (defined by any place with no mobile reception), 15kms east of Scone, NSW. It was excellent to spend time with friends, to build fires and to not be disturbed by email.
On holidays I usually like to set myself little challenges. This time I wanted to try out some new photo apps (mostly Average Camera Pro), along with my glif mount and a tripod. Here are some pics I took while experimenting with my new setup.
Haven’t posted here for a little while.
Summer was spent preparing for and doing HEAPS of great ministry around the place. I had the great privilege of preaching through Philippians on SummerLife Kiama along with plenty of Christmas stuff with church.
Kirsty and I also managed to get away for a very short notice, week long holiday in Brizvegas. It was so excellent. We found the most amazing coffee EVER. We also managed to catch the last flight out of Brisbane back home when the bad weather started.
Here are some photos we took
A couple of weeks ago I went on MooreMission 2012. You can learn more here.
I took a few photos during the week.
Here are some of them.
Each day, when I don’t drive into college, I walk through Sydney UNI. This is so I can look cool with all the trendy arts students rushing for their classes. It’s also because they sell campos 70c cheaper than further down the road in Newtown.
One of the great things about walking through Sydney UNI is when student elections are on. Last year my favourite slogan was “Zac to the future”. This slogan perfectly utilised the “Back to the Future” logo. I was so proud.
Anyway, student elections are coming up again. Here are some of the posters. I’m sad the Zac isn’t running again this year. It could of been brilliant.
It has been a while since I posted anything of any real meaning on here. That is largely due to an almost non-stop summer of activity. Here are the quick highlights.
- We finished up at family church in mid December.
- Christmas happened.
- Tyro has been mental. See some of the stuff we have been doing here.
- We went on beach mission. We were the cooks. It was mental. Good mental, but still mental.
- A bit of time was spent getting ready for college starting again.
- Kirsty started a new job.
- I started a new job as a student minister at an Anglican Church in Cammeray.
- Australia dominated in the test series.
Pretty much sums it up. Normal service will now resume.
Yesterday Kirsty and I took each other out on a date to the Easter Show. It was a really nice day, and the weather was perfect. Neither of us had been for around 10 years.
I took a few photos during the day, mostly so I could give the new camera app on my iPhone a run through. Hope you enjoy them.
My time last week down in St George North was a blast. St George North Anglican is a church that I suspect is going to go on to achieve great things in and around St George North. They have a great staff team working there for Jesus. That being said, I don’t think I have ever packed so much into one week for a long time.
This week everyone is back at college, and the assignments are starting to pour in again. I thought I would lighten things up with some random photos I took last week. Enjoy.
p.s you can check out St George North Anglican Church, here.
Following on from my photo post the other day, I thought I would post some other photos I’ve taken recently on my daily trips into Newtown and back. I really am starting to love Newtown. There is so much cool stuff there to take photos of. I’m constantly reminded about the great music culture that exists there, there are posters for music gigs literally everywhere you look.
I hope you enjoy these pictures.
During the week I catch the train from Hornsby (where Kirsty and I live) to Redfern and then walk to Newtown (where college lives). One of the things that I love about the walk is all the great architecture that I see along the way.
In high school I studied photography from year 8 till year 12, which involved it being a part of my HSC. There are various different genres of photography, but the one type that I really liked was photos of Architecture.
On my walks to college each day, I have started taking photos of the great buildings that I see. These were all shot using my iPhone 4, and edited using the Photoshop Express iOS app.
I hope you enjoy them.
