I am taking part in a 2020 Photo Challenge, along with Julian and some friends from the Etobicoke Camera Club. Every month we are given a theme and we each produce 4 images which are being published on Diane Sawatzky's website Group Project 2020.
Check in monthly and see what we are up to! This is our 5th year and you can see previous years' via links in Diane's website It's a fun way to develop creativity and see how others have interpreted the themes!
