CBC Hamilton is launching an exciting new ongoing project, our Hamilton Photo Map. We'll be collecting photos from Twitter through the #HamOnt hashtag and geolocating them to help build a virtual photo tour of the city that's always changing and growing. It's an idea brought to us by one of the city's frequent photographers Wayne MacPhail. Here's how to get your pics on the grid:

1. Take photos when you're out and about in Hamilton. Whether you're enjoying a picturesque waterfall or you see some breaking news, we want to feature your photo skills!

2. Send us a tweet with the location of your photo. You can use the #HamOnt hashtag or the hashtag #HamOntPics. We hope that will become another place where all Hamiltonians on twitter can share and celebrate local photography. You can also email us at

3. We'll geolocate your photo (if you haven't already) and all the additional information to our map. The map will update weekly.

4. Only send us pictures that you have taken or own the rights to. The CBC retains no rights to these images.

Here's a collection of images that tell the story of Hamilton this week in pictures.
