Past walks are listed here (with maps); future walk dates are on our calendar; if you’d like to help organise a walk, find out what’s involved.

TOPW schedule 2016

Sunday, December 27th, 2015

The poll to decide the pattern for 2016’s schedule was won (only by a few votes) by “One Saturday and one Sunday a month (different weekends)”, so here’s the calendar:

January: 01*, 17
February: 06, 21
March: 05, 20
April: 02, 17
May: 07, 22
June: 04, 19
July: 02, 17
August: 06, 21
September: 03, 18
October: 01, 16
November: 05, 20
December: 03, 18

*We always start the year with the Hair Of The Dog walk, and given it’s a Friday that will replace the “first Saturday of the month” regular schedule.

If you’re technically inclined, you can import the TOPW schedule into your calendar – info is @ http://torontophotowalks.ca/calendar/

As always (a) please let me know if you’d like to plan/lead a scheduled walk, because all help is greatly appreciated, and (b) “off-schedule” walks can be added if people want to organise them. (I’m going to try to move everything to the TOPW website to reduce the duplication but I’ve not had time to investigate this yet.)

The definition of “official walks” is changing for 2016: as long as the walk is published on both the TOPW Facebook group and Flickr group then we can consider it “official” (and therefore share those shots in both places).

Disclaimer! If we discover there isn’t enough interest in Sunday walks, or the new “official” walk definition isn’t working, then we will change things.

New TOPW logo

Friday, May 29th, 2015

As part of rebuilding the website I noticed that some services (e.g. Facebook) now require larger images, which is why there’s no image in the FB preview when I post a link to the site. Sooooo, is anyone interested in designing a new TOPW logo?

TOPW.ca site problems

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

The Toronto Photo Walks website hit a serious problem and had to be restored from a recent backup. It looks like most information & configuration was properly restored but please leave a comment if you find a problem. Thanks.

2014 walk leaders

Friday, January 2nd, 2015

Thank you to everyone who led walks in 2014: Andrew (2 walks); Dane (1); David & Jeff (1); Mary (1); Paul (7); Sasha (2); Stephanie (1); Teresa (2); Thomas (2); Vicki (8).

If you have an idea for a walk, talk to someone who’s done it and (hopefully) you’ll discover it’s not too difficult! Here are also some links that might help: [All our past walks and maps] [TOPW Calendar] [How to plan a walk]

Thanks also to Vicki & David for organising our anniversary party; the Flickr moderators and Facebook admins (Alan, Brad, Georgette, Jerome, Loretta, Mark, Vicki); and too everyone who comes out to the photowalks!

Happy New Year to all, and hopefully we’ll see you on a photowalk soon!
