March 2021

Congratulations to Pickering's Gary Myers for “Winter’s Teeth” our March Pic of the Month photographer HERE.

February 2021

Congratulations to Mark Cassell for his fabulous Frozen Bubble photograph!

Mark shared his recipe for making these:
I use the pretty standard online recipe (1/2 to 3/4 cups water, 2tbsp soap, 2tbsp corn syrup) and yes I do just use a straw (McDonald’s drink size) to blow them. The biggest challenges are avoiding wind and reflections in the bubble, and now has also become about finding new and interesting ways to create and photograph them.


Congratulations to Susana Mingram, our January Pic of the Month Digital Artist for "Weird Times"
"Weird Times" reflects people's emotions during the beginning of this pandemic; some were in panic, and some felt in despair. They all remained together, but cannot wait to be separated.
Until the lockdown is over, we shall stay home and remain in contact with our beloved friends and family, but never forget the lessons we’ve learned along the way!

Congratulations to Jackie Ferrier, our December Pic of the Month Photographer for her family photo "I wanted to create an experience inspired by still life and portrait paintings of the Golden Age in the 17th century. But my girls weren’t too thrilled with the idea of dressing up for it so I came up with the idea of doing a portrait so none of us would have to. I shot each of us separately and made the head pieces in secret and shot them individually, too. Then brought it all together in photoshop."

Congratulations to Anjalie Rampersad of Pickering our November Pic of the Month photographer for her photo of her friend's pup Jax, a sweet little Cockapoo (10-weeks- old).

Congratulations to Kelley Lenkeit, of Ajax winner of our October Pic of the Month for her beautiful photo taken around sideline 24 - between York Durham 30 and 5th Concession, Stouffville area.
