Dear WRConnected Users: Three whole years! We've grown so much over the past three years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. To this point it has been funded out of my own pocket. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover all of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

LENS, you're welcome and thank you. There's a few (several) shots on your Flickr account I'd be very interested in purchasing and framing; one of which is called "King Street" (taken December 4, 2014). The shot and vibrant colors are phenomenal, and would look great with my Lance Russwurm collection! I have a few shots I'll post in the coming days...

Awesome! I'll pm you with my contact info. Lance Russworm has some gorgeous local scenes, It'd be an honour to be on the wall beside his work!

Lens, I completely agree. Lance Russwurm has some outstanding pieces; my personal favorite being the train station shot with CN locomotive 6167 (the unit that resides in downtown Guelph). Between you and Lance, I could quickly run out of wall space!!

I went for a ride to Elora today and took this photo of the covered bridge on my way back. I'm strictly amateur, but the day was too beautiful not to share.

That's a really nice shot. Nice to see the bridge is holding together.

Victoria Park once again ... what an asset it is to our downtown!

"What an asset" is a huge understatement.  We are so fortunate to have such a gem downtown !!

Some people say the clock tower should still be on the old-old city hall, but I think it looks fantastic as part of Victoria Park.

It is stunning, and a great addition to an already beautiful park. I have to say it though....the building to which it sat was beautiful also, and is gone forever to an underwhelming Market Square (not to mention the architectural gem of a post office that was kitty corner to it). In my perfect world, the old city hall would have been preserved, and Market Square would have been built further east on King, but that's just my opinion. Either way, it looks great in Victoria Park.

How's the Waterloo skyline shaping up? It's been a couple years since I've been in Waterloo. From what I remember the view from the little hill under these powerlines is relatively decent:

I found myself in the middle of the Delta yesterday evening.

Heads up, it's Kitchenerhenge.
Maybe someone with a good camera can get a better shot of this tomorrow?

There have been some gorgeous sunrises/sunsets recently. Bad weather produces great photos.

A running buddy of mine captured this pair of photos from an early morning run we had this past Tuesday at Chicopee:

Another friend captured this shot from that same evening during our club ride, out in Wellesley Twp:
