Good morning! And welcome to day two of our Blog-iversary Countdown. I’m so glad you could stop by, because Shutterbug Sis is here today … and she brought her photo album!
If you’ve visited me here before, then you already know that I love sharing the photos Shutterbug Sis takes on our family’s trips together. She’s awfully good with a camera (hence the nickname). But what you might not know is that she also captures amazing images from trips that she takes on her own. This time last year, Shutterbug Sis was in Sri Lanka with TRIP Canada. I’ll let her tell you all about it:
TRIP Canada is a non-profit organization called the Tsunami Rebuilding Involvement Program. I collected sponsorships and travelled to a village in Sri Lanka with a group of people. We spent ten days there rebuilding and repairing a local school and temple. I’ve never worked so hard (or sweat so much) in my entire life, and I can’t wait to go back.
How proud am I of my little sister?!? She did such amazing work while she was there! She asked if I would be including some of
her TRIP photos in today’s Top 5 List, and I said of course I would. It turns out that I should have thought a little more carefully before answering; it was way too hard to narrow the selection of TRIP photos down to just one slot! So my Shutterbug’s Sri Lanka photos are awarded two well-deserved spots on today’s Countdown.
Choosing between the rest of her photos was just as tough, but here’s my final list:
#5 Beach and rock temple photos, in “Snapshots from Sri Lanka, Volume 5”
#4 Thanksgiving 2012, in “Autumn on Lake Joseph”
#3 September 2012, in “How I Spent My Summer Vacation, Part Two”
#2 and #1 Our Big Fat Greek Vacation and Snapshots from Sri Lanka photo galleries, in “Wordful Wednesday for August 1st, Special 100th Post-a-Palooza Edition”
I could have let that list go on and on, but I think it’s actually kind of perfect that we’re closing with photos that were featured in a Wordful Wednesday post … because that’s the Top 5 List that we’re going to be tackling tomorrow. How is reader favourite “corybantic” going to stack up against my beloved “flibbergibbety?” You’ll have to come back tomorrow to find out!
In the meantime, you can browse all of Shutterbug Sis’s amazing photos by selecting “Shutterbug Sis” from the Category menu on the right. Have a photogenic Tuesday, everyone!
