in Photo of the Day

Last week I blogged about the Youth of Manotick spaghetti dinner fundraiser, so I thought it would be fun to share some of the images from the event last night.

I have to admit, I was nervous going in. I’d agreed to take some photos, but had some concerns. For one, I’m much more comfortable taking portraits than event photos. For another, Legion halls are not known for their camera-friendly lighting. I needn’t have worried – the event was a wonderful success. The kids were terrific, the dinner was yummy, the turnout was so great that extra tables were set up on the fly and I think some people got turned away at the door. The challenging lighting was mostly compensated for with a little bit of bounced flash, everyone seemed to have a great time and lots of great photo opportunities were captured. See?

YOMA dinner

I was super proud of the kids last night, and charmed by how special guest Mayor Jim Watson did not act like a special guest at all as he interacted with all the young people in the room. I’m glad to live in a community that has a heart like this. 🙂
