    thanks for all your wonderful photos. We still have a week to the end of this challenge, please go out and walk around your neighbourhoods and continue to find houses and buildings with unique designs. There should be plenty more for you to photograph right here in Vancouver/GVRD.

    This may be a stupid question, but how do I upload pictures for this challenge?
    I am able to do this on my app, but not the full site!
    It appears as this challenge is still upcoming by appearance.
    Thanks....

    Just to clarify with everyone, my virtual meetup is announced one week before it starts, then you also have two extra weeks to go out and take photographs. This allows everyone plenty of time to photograph as many you could find or learning from fellow members to include new skills into your next photos.

    • Peter

      yes you could post old photos, there is no restriction, but if you also submit new photos for this exercise then would be much better.
