NativePhotoADayIf you’ve been following me on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, or you are my friend on Facebook, then you might have noticed that during the months of January and March, I was doing the Photo A Day Challenge.

It was such a wonderful trip that it even made my Top 11 (moments) of 2011 post earlier this year.  The video by Aboriginal photographer Candace Ward was just released a few days ago so I thought it was a great time to share this short clip of the event. The other people that presented that day include: Cathrine Ann, Susan Aglukark, Dianne Buchner, Dr. Alex Bruton, and Christi Millar.   Take a quick look … Continued
