The Y is more than a fitness facility it's core programs include Health, Fitness and Recreation, Birthday Parties, Aquatics, Employment and Enterprise Services and Children's Services. Drop by and check it out.

Canada Day Photowalk

Are you someone who enjoys photography and would like to learn more about it? Perhaps you recently got a new camera and would  like to learn how to use it? No matter what your skill set you can always learn something. If so, you might be interested to know that I will be leading a Canada Day Photowalk in downtown St John's on July 1st and you are welcome to come along.

I will do what I can to help you with your camera settings, answer any questions you have and make suggestions to you on how you may be able to improve your photography and the good news is it costs you nothing to join me. All I ask is that if we stop to photograph some of the buskers you give them a coin or two.

We can meet at Harbour Side Park, across from the National War Memorial at 9am and walk down Water St. and spend a couple of hours having some fun. What we shoot will depend on who we meet and the weather, maybe there will be a surprise or two in store for us. I find there usually is when I am downtown with my camera.

Depending on the response I get I may have to limit the number of people, so if you're interested please post below. If you have any questions or comments, be great to hear from you, I'll try my best to answer them.

Be seeing you!
