It’s that time of year again. One of our photo clubs, which is a naturalist club, is doing a photo show. No we aren’t nude…………..but you can only display nature photos, wildlife, landscapes, flowers, insects etc.
As they say, “No hand of man” may be shown in your photos. This is okay by me, it’s my favourite kind of photography.
Off to the RCAF Museum at 8 Wing Trenton better known as the National Air Force Museum of Canada. We were to meet others from our Brighton Photo Group for our Field Day. Cameras – check; Tripods – check; money for lunch – check ! All ready to go – Check !
Our goal today, (other than have fun and go for lunch)………was:
“to use selective focus to isolate your image. And to add an extra dimension, you’ll be challenged to photograph geometric shapes of aircraft bits and pieces. For example, when looking at the “silver dart,” photograph the triangular shapes of the struts and supports, isolating them from the background to make a work of art.”
Have I mentioned how much we enjoy going to the Old Church? Maybe 3-4 dozen times? lol We headed there again last night to see a group that we have seen before but I really enjoy their music so here we are again.
Well that was a fun night last night ! We headed to the Regent Theatre in Picton for a concert. It was pretty cold and I didn’t want to leave my house but we did. I think it was only about -17 Celsius when we left, colder with the wind chill. And the drive was on the back roads to Picton but they were in pretty good shape.
Another fun night at the Old Church. Clint, Joan and I went to see Talk of the Town. They played hits from the 1930’s and 1940’s and we heard tunes from Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and more.
We had a great day today. Headed out bright and early for Amherst island. Well, early for me………….we left our house before 7 a.m. We were on the ferry and over to the island before 830. This island is located in Lake Ontario about 10 kms west of Kingston, Ontario. Cost for us and our truck was $9. It was supposed to be sunny all day but of course, it wasn’t. It was about 4 Celsius and a few sunny spells.
