Today was the first time the "Weekend to End Women's Cancers" walk went through my neighbourhood in Toronto. I went out into nearby Little India on Lower Gerrard to take
a few photographs. Then I wrote up my experience in "One View of the 2013 March to End Womens Cancers
".In the above photo, note the white arrow on a pink circle; that's their signpost.
Who am I to resist the call of the camera? On Sept. 7, 2013, this was the scene outside the Gerard-Ashdale library. "A Sign for the 2013 Women's Cancer Walk #1" image by Mike DeHaan
I also took a couple pictures of one sign signalling the walkers to turn. "A Sign for the 2013 Women's Cancer Walk #2" image by Mike DeHaan
Both of the "sign" images are pretty similar. "Wet Women's Cancer Walk in Little India Toronto #3" image by Mike DeHaan
Here's the last photograph I took this morning. Now I realize that I could not hold the camera steady in the overhead position, but didn't know it until seeing the larger image on my computer.
One Writing Tip from the 2013 Women's Cancer March
I've written about keeping alert for writing opportunities in previous writing tips
, but nearly missed this one. What was my first mistake this time? Not doing any research into the 2013 Women's Cancer March.
My usual approach is to cover annual Toronto events before they occur, so people can participate or watch. However, the more preparation or expense is involved, the less I'm inclined to write a report.The March to End
Women's Cancers is a very worthy cause, but it takes a lot of preparation. Not only do you need to be able to walk 30Km a day for two days straight, you also need to raise $2000 for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. The time-frame is much longer than "you have a few weeks to pre-order advance discount CNE tickets online
".So I decided not to publicize the 2013 Cancer March. Even though I learned
, yesterday, that the route would include my Little India and Eastern Beach neighbourhoods, I'd already discounted this opportunity to write an article.My writing tip is to recognize and seize topics
that fit anywhere near your niche.Learn more at the official 2013 March to End Women's Cancers web site.
