January 7, 2013. Arriving early, I found several club members chatting with Mary O'Malley Joyce. I didn't catch the earlier conversation, but I thought Mary's "photos" were great. Later in the meeting I found out the Mary took black and white photos and painted all the scenes. My mouth dropped, what a great talent !
The following are mug shots of the first meeting of the year, in no particular order.
Gary Courtney demonstrated his new camera accessory, which allows him to remotely adjust his camera while sending photos to the web while storing them on his camera card. It is a very cool addition to his photo equipment.
Mary Joyce showed her remarkable art work and everyone took a close and admiring look.
At one point, Audrey was asked why she initiated the Facebook conversation about undergarments. Audrey said: John was the culprit. Along comes Joe who logged onto the internet to prove that John never used the word undergarment. Case closed ! (ha, make your own webpage and you can post your own conclusion!).
There were times during the meeting when the club president made remarks that were so riveting that several club members were sitting on the edge of their chairs.
During the meeting, Anna became the photo subject, but she was hardly in view, and without a telephone lens, serious cropping was in order. Some cameras make it easy to crop.
It was a fun meeting and everyone is looking forward to the next one.
