Here are some photos our and your lenses captured this week.
Higher Grounds Manager Rick Melvin poses with two leaves from the coffee shop’s Giving Tree, seen on the wall behind him. The laminated drawing of a tree has multi-coloured leaves, each redeemable for a coffee, soup or full meal. The process is simple. Those with a little money to spare can pre-pay for a coffee or meal, and those who lack the funds can take a leaf and get the food they need. – Stephen Dafoe Photo
