An invitation! Photo Ops


We’re looking for photos of things you like about cities where you live, work or visit. We will hope to use some of them in a future project and event. Take some shots of bike lanes, crosswalks, and spaces for people. People moving about the city on bikes, feet, wheelchairs, or other conveyances– kids, elderly, people with pets. Pics of parks you like and the ways they’re used. The scenarios are endless. Trees are budding and flowers are starting to bloom, more people are out and about so there’s tons of inspiration! Share your pics here, or email to apcompletestreets@gmail.com. You can contact us there as well. We are so grateful for your support. Looking forward to your contributions!

Literally life transforming.
