Colin Chisholm’s favourite pho­tos from 2018

Valley Journal Advertiser - - YEAR IN REVIEW -

We cap­ture a lot of mo­ments in peo­ple’s lives from through­out the re­gion. Ter­ri­fy­ing mo­ments, joy­ful mo­ments, new be­gin­nings, painful ends, and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

Some­times we come pre­pared, cam­era ready, fully charged with an empty me­mory card, sub­ject in frame and other times we’re at a break­ing news scene and try­ing to make sense out of a chaotic sit­u­a­tion – ei­ther way, we have to be on our game at all times to get that shot, the photo that helps to tell the story, or in some cases, tells the whole story and then some.


From left, Jen­nifer Dill, Donna Eldridge, and Kathy Ri­ley try to stay warm in­side a makeshift tent. They spend the night in­side it each year to bring at­ten­tion and aware­ness of the plight of home­less and dis­placed peo­ple.


Cindy Porter, stand­ing next to her hus­band, said she was ter­ri­fied as the brush fire inched closer and closer to her home.


El­iz­a­beth Smith, who’s been play­ing the pi­ano since she was a young girl, bids a fond farewell to the Big Val­ley Swing Orches­tra af­ter 15 years.
