I had the distinct pleasure of leading a Focus on Nature workshop with the young adults at Community of Hearts. While they may live with challenges related to their mental disabilities, these folks were very enthusiastic about learning photography and showed great talent in making well-composed images.
We spent the morning walking, laughing and shooting photos of flowers, goslings, graffiti and our own shadows along the Speed River. It was a blast! They have a great sense of humour and a big capacity for compassion.
And like the students at our school workshops they were proud of their work and keen to share their slideshows with the others in their group.
Thank you Community of Hearts. I hope we'll be able to work with you again.
