Green in Guelph: four photos by Krista Kruger and a guelPhonography mini-challenge!

Within Your Reach   Cucumber Coils   Full Throttle   Pushing Through    

It's still a bit chilly out but officially spring... finally!

I've chosen a few photos by Krista Kruger in the hopes it'll inspire you to participate in guelPhonography's March mini-challenge, #GreenInGuelph. Although these photos weren't taken on a phone they're certainly green... and beautiful, aren't they. I especially like the cucumber coils. 

How to participate in the challenge

Take a shot of something green with your smart phone and share it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or Google+ with the #GreenInGuelph hashtag for a chance to win. 

At the end of the month, the guelPhonography team will select a winner. 

See what's been shared so far

I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

New Horizons - Hillside Revisited #3 08-04-2015

Happy Friday!  Today I wanted to suggest you give a listen to one of the early New Horizons radio episodes  -- after a wordy, repetitive series of intros, and a sounder from Danny Michel, you'll get to hear esteemed, world famous, 80 yr old Richard Flohill in conversation about folk music, the role of a music publicist, his advice to young people and more!

You'll also hear some great music from Matt Anderson, Danny Michel, Amelia Curran, Bry Webb and Barzin.

We also play a tiny clip recorded with Jim and edited by Doug, with tips for staying young!  There are also 2 segments that were put together by Annie, a first time reporter for our show.
