last night, i read about an awesome thing that chris + lynn are doing called cans for comments. basically, you post a comment on their blog in the next week, and for each contributor, they will donate a canned good to their local food bank. what a generous and fun idea! i immediately told lynn that i’m copying her… and looking at their blog today, so are lots of other photographers! so, start commenting… it just takes a minute or two, and if you visit everyone’s blog, you can really make a difference! so, have a look around the blog — looking forward to some feedback!

note: the cans for all your comments on my blog will go to the vancouver food bank.

here are all the other photographers that are participating so far. and if you’re a photographer and want to get in on this… let one of us know so we can all update our list!!

i wanted to take a photo of a bunch of canned goods to add to this post, but going through my cupboards… well, i don’t really have many cans… i have a few cans of tomatoes, two cans of black beans, two cans of beets (i’ve never eaten canned beets in my life), one can of pumpkin puree (so i can attempt to make my own pumpkin spice lattes), and even more random… heart of palm. never before have i eaten heart of palm. but i own it. and here’s the (additional) proof of what a strange person i am:
