Community Events

There’s always something photo worthy happening out there adding the “U” and “I” in community. I wish I could be everywhere, but I can’t. Not enough hours in a day, not enough days in a week, not enough weeks in a month, not enough months in a year and certainly never enough months in one’s life. Remember to “Live, Laugh, Love and Photograph”!

Below are albums filled with photos I have taken at events. I am sharing them, as a thank you to the organizers, volunteers and all others involved. I am alwasy hoping to get some more bodies out for the next one. A community relies on it’s inhabitants to flourish, get out there meet your neighbours, help local businesses and of course have fun. There are so many things to do in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Send me your pics and they may end up on the “reader contributions” page.
