Surreal Skylines – By Hannah Niederriter

Seeing New York City from ground level is already overwhelming, but viewing it from the top of the Empire State Building is a completely mind-boggling experience. Feeling the breeze while laying eyes on some of the city’s greatest attractions 86 floors up is a sensation like no other. I am certainly hoping to go back someday, but even if I don’t, this view will forever remain in my memories.

Morning Dream –  By Amber Holt

The sunrise’s reflection upon the ocean’s waters is absolutely surreal. It is one of the earth’s beauties that many are not even awake to see. Witnessing the vibrant colors was like finding a hidden treasure. This picture from my summer’s vacation will forever be special to me. Who knows if I will ever return there again, but at least I will remember the allure of Wildwood’s waters for eternity.

Fruition of Exhaustion – By Dylan Lu

This summer has been a whirlwind between summer homework, chores, gardening, and my first job, but I’m glad to say I spent one of the precious days of a dwindling vacation with my family and girlfriend. We went to see a concert on the 23rd of August, and despite the long drive, managed to stay awake while having fun even on the hour and a half ride back to Oil City. The following work day might’ve been rough, but I wouldn’t give up this day for the world. I was grateful to have seen one of my favorite music groups with some of my most valued people.
