Paul Henman is a group administrator Paul Henman says:

Date: Saturday 7th August 2010.

Meet: 10:00am outside the Starbucks at Richmond and Spadina.

Route: Westbound on Graffiti Alley, then continue west on Queen West.

Lunch: The Dog’s Bollocks [To Be Confirmed].

Post-walk: The Gladstone Hotel [To Be Confirmed].

Hashtag: please use TOPW:GA

If anyone is interested, I'm setting myself a word challenge - I've got an iPhone app that gives me list of 10 words and I need to find shots that reflect those words. No reward other than completing a challenge. Let me know if you want to play too.

This one is completely up in the air for me. My niece will be in town that weekend for a conference event and has mentioned meeting for lunch and such in the afternoon that day. She hasn't really sorted out the details yet but should get back to me tomorrow with more info.

So I may see y'all in the morning and then again sometime much later in the day.

I'll be there for 10am at the Starbucks and you'll have me until noonish. I then have to head out and meet up my niece. I'll give y'all a call in the evening to find out if you're at the Gladstone or the T&T night market.

I might drop in and out at some point nearer that lunch bit, which is roughly across the street from home for me. Otherwise, busy day alternating housework, paid work, and checking the oven.

Allan - you need to put your updates in the comments area so it kicks the file and reminds folks! Though this is good too. I'll be playing tour guide for my niece tomorrow but hopefully I'll make it out sometime next week since I have time off.

Jeff - ".... with flair and some hair" .... Are you going to do an Elvis impersonation for us??? ;)

Laurie - Are you asking for me to throw down the gauntlet to you my dear and tell you that you have to find something that starts with X, Q and Z?? ;)

Doh - I just saw Paul's comment about the iPhone app .... I was thinking of the Alphabet game (obviously) ... did I mention that I think I got about four or so hours of interrupted sleep last night and that I can't function well on that amount of snooze time?? I'm going to bed now ... see y'all in the morning folks! :p

Don't forget to tag your photos with the challenge words! It'll be really interesting to see how everyone interprets some of those words ... e.g. did anyone get a "chair" that wasn't literally a chair?

If you want to try it yourself, the iPhone app is @ www.photowalkideas.com/
