 2015 In Pictures: By Others Reprise

All of 2015, in every Issue, we've been fortunate and privileged to publish the most wonderful images to show what's happening where and when by great photographers - those who live in Pittwater and are out and about doing their thing. Some of these have been for the Community News page, others have brightened our Front Pages and some have been full Pictorials and Articles.

Someone may need to own the company and run the business but this magazine is also owned by Community Spirit - it is all of you who have helped expand, maintain and lift our For, About and By Pittwater.

It is your voices, unedited, uninterpreted, that are contributing to a record of and a reflection of a community that cares about each other, their environment, their sports, their children and everyone else they may meet here - people they've known for decades, people they have just met, visitors to our beautiful part of Sydney.

This week's Pictorial, the last for 2015, is a reprise of all these photographs By Others - thank you very much for sharing these with those less mobile, those far from home who pop in here to see what the weather's like, and those who were not there at that moment a dolphin raced across your bow near Barrenjoey or a Lorikeet feasted on magnificent Spring blooms or the boys won the premiership or the children made music for elders or you and your mates planted trees, cleaned rubbish from waterways.

Thank you all very very much - You have helped us all....'get the picture'!

In follow up to your story on Billie and Jemma raising funds for cancer  (November 23 - 29, 2014: Issue 190), I thought it might be nice to mention that they made $82 from the generous people that bought their books and will be donating the money to CanTeen. Billie and Ava donated the books and Jemma helped to sell them. See Front Page Issue 198 - January 2015
