At Peace (1.5 stars)

“Places Of Peace”

My next visual assignment from the visual bank was “Places Of Peace”, and this assignment has a 1.5 star rating. This was fun to do because I find it enjoyable to reflect on places that bring me peace in times of stress especially if those places aren’t close enough to visit at the drop of a hat.

To start we’ll talk about the picture on the left. I (like most people in the world) love the beach. For me, the beach is the most relaxing place in the world. This particular beach is in Nags Head, North Carolina, and the picture was taken in November of 2016. I’ve been going to the Outer Banks since 2013 so it’s always enjoyable to find time to go down even if just for the weekend. Below I have posted a picture of a map of the Outer Banks. For anyone who’s never been there the Outer Banks is made up of small beach towns.

The picture on the right was taken at Point Lookout State Park which is located in Scotland, Maryland, and the picture was taken this month (June 2020). My mom went camping at Point Lookout with her family when she was young and in turn, she started taking my sister and I camping there when I was 5-years-old. For the past 20-years I’ve been visiting Point Lookout whether it was to go camping for days at a time or to just go there for the day. Having a son of my own now and being able to take him there to show him all the things I love brings me so much happiness and peace.

Above I’ve posted a picture of the lighthouse that’s located at the point of Point Lookout State Park. Below I’ve shared the link to the site where I got the picture from. I had trouble embedding it but wanted to make sure I at least got the link up for the mean time incase anyone is interested in learning a little bit more about Point Lookout!

I used Photo Collage to create this collage of the two images. I chose this particular collage template because I thought it was something fun and different. Below I will post some simple instructions along with some screenshots that might be helpful for anyone interested in using this site. Let me know in the comments below if you have any questions or comments!

(1): First, start by adding your pictures. You can either use the ‘browse’ button or you can drag and drop them onto the canvas.
(2): Once you have chosen your photos you can either play around with the sizes you want for each picture or you can pick from one of the templates the website offers (which is what I chose for this particular assignment).
(3): Now that you’ve decided if you’re going to use a template or not and got the pictures in the order you want, it’s time to save the pictures by using the drop down menu. and ta-da you’re done!

Share and Enjoy !
