While I’ve been on Flickr for more than five years, it was only in the last year or two that I really started participating in the social side of the medium, posting my photos to groups and participating in group discussions.

I’ve learned so much about photography, but I like to think I’ve also learned just a little bit about what it takes to run a group that’s helpful and welcoming and a fun place to hang out online. Lofty goals, but with a co-admin like Angela, aka jhscrapmom, I think we’re up to the task!

So please, if you’re in the Ottawa area and you take pictures, or like pictures, or like to hang around with peeps from Ottawa who take (or like!) pictures, come and play with us in the Postively Ottawa group.

Positively Ottawa

a group to share your ottawa and ottawa area photos
a group to share your photos if you are an ottawa area photographer
a group to share your ottawa blogs
a group to share your ottawa experiences
a group to share your photographic experience
a group to learn from
a group to ask questions in
a group to positively participate in

and in the spirit of positivity we welcome photographers from beginner to professional!

we play nice here. promise.
and we follow all flickr guidelines. we are funny like that.
this is a family friendly group, please moderate your photos accordingly.

Cuz, yanno, I don’t spend enough hours in the day with either a keyboard attached to my hands or a camera stuck to my face. *grin* And speaking of pictures, here’s my own favourite of the week.

I’m in! I got word of this group from anglea.
Love the photos in there so far. I don’t use Flickr groups to the same degree you do … but what a neat group!
