in Ottawa Family Fun, Photography

So you know I love the subject of family fun in Ottawa, and you know I love photography, and you know I love taking pictures of my kids doing fun things around Ottawa, right?

Then how could I not love the ABC Challenge that GlidingLara introduced on their awesome new group blog, Kids in the Capital. The blog itself is terrific, a constantly-updated source of ideas and entertainment for family fun in Ottawa.

And the ABC Challenge is right up my alley. Lara said,

In the next 14 weeks I will get at least one photo I am proud of in each of the categories (in no particular order) in my following ABC list. Every week I will present you with 2 of the photos (hmmm, maybe photos from two categories so I can show you more if I feel like it), as well as a photography tip I have discovered that I can share with you. […] And I would love it if you would join me! I set up a flickr group where we can all share our photos with each other. Together we can not only share our beautiful photos but highlight some of the amazing spots in our fabulous city, from all its different angles.

Here’s the official ABC list:

Art
Books
Climbing
Discovery
Eating
Friends
Green
Hugging
Inside
Jumping
Kisses
Laughing
Mealtime
Night
Outside
Playing
Quiet
Riding
Swinging
Trees
Umbrella
Vehicles
Wet
Xcited (OH! Cheater!)
Yellow
Zoom

Fun, eh? I like this idea so much, in fact, that I’m having a hard time restraining myself. I mean, I could fill an entire blog with pictures of kids on the loose in Ottawa — oh wait, I already have!! So you need to join this group and help dilute my presence there, okay? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve already spammed the pool with entries for Friends and Wet based on my adventures with Alex and Angela this week. This is one is for F is for Friends:

Beach Buddies

And I simply couldn’t choose between these three for W is for Wet:

Hello rock!

432:1000 Splash TtV

That`s COLD!

And my first entry was this one, O is for Outside:

429:1000 Spring at the park TtV

Lara is also posting her progress weekly on the blog, and providing photography tips and tutorials, so be sure to follow along.

Thanks, Kids in the Capital, for this excellent new project! And, erm, I’ll try to restrain myself from adding too many pix. ๐Ÿ™‚

Wheee – thanks for sharing the information about the challenge. I’m having a lot of fun with it too. And it really IS hard to choose just one photo per letter. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you ever have any photography tips to share let me know… I feel a bit like the blind leading the sighted with some of you participants ๐Ÿ˜‰

Looking forward to seeing all your entries, you really do sound excited! Really enjoy how your header photos change and especially love the one with all the sneakers!
I’m hosting a link-up today at Amen Corners “Picture Perfect Weekends” and would love for you to join in ๐Ÿ™‚

I read your blog regularly so I had to check out Kids In the Capital. I finally figured out how to join flickr and post some photos. What a great idea. I hope more people join up. I love looking at the photos.
