YOWYOW in Ottawa

My husband and I attended the 1st ever YOWYOW event last night at Raw Sugar Café on Somerset Street in Chinatown. It’s described as an unconference and networking event featuring interesting people and ideas in Ottawa.

The Raw Sugar Café is such a lovely and cozy place (Read Ottawa’s Foodies review on the place). I loved their vintage decorating style and relaxed atmosphere. We had a great time meeting people from all walks of life! We enjoyed it so much that we were the last ones to leave.

It was also pretty cool to hear that one of the speakers, Ian Graham from The Code Factory mentioned Awesome Ottawa as one of his favourite grass roots organizations in the city.

I’m really looking forward to the next YOWYOW event.

Congratulations to Sophé B Poitras and Marc-André Plouffe for putting on a great event!

I was born and raised in Monterrey on the majestic Sierra Madre mountain range in Mexico. Over 20 years ago my parents gave me my first camera as a birthday gift and ever since I got that simple point and shoot Kodak camera, I have enjoyed looking at the world from behind a lens. Technology has improved and I have upgraded cameras many times since then, but the need to capture a perfect moment remains the same. Photography provides me a way to communicate with others. Digital photography allows me to play with photographs and it enables me to sink deeper in the creative process. I studied photography for the first time in 1995 and continue to enjoy capturing special moments every chance I get.

  1. I'm sorry that we never had a chance to meet Stella. I left a bit earlier, perhaps middle of the pack. It was a very interesting evening with probably the most eclectic group that I've seen in awhile. Definitely bodes well for the next one.
