For Street Photography Group and all members - fun read

As most of you may know, PM Trudeau and family were in Revelstoke, BC for New Year holidays.  Here is the local press' efforts at being paparazzi.  Gave me a good chuckle and I wish you the same.

Change to agenda for the November meeting

I've just learned that next month's speaker will be Seth Berkowitz instead of Pierre, who has kindly stepped aside until February. Seth will talk about portraiture and an idea that has come up involving both Photosynthesis and the club.

Condolences on the Passing of Greg Klassen

Many condolences on the passing of one of our distinguished members who spread his love and knowledge of Photography throughout the community.  He will be missed by many - Seldom have I seen such dedication and immersion in our favorite pastime  - his creativity was amazing and his willingness to share and involve his peers in his projects was heart warming and a pleasure to be part of.

Many of my Eclectic Visions entries have been smartphone images, my last two for EV 2017, for example.

For our first EV, in 2010, I printed a photo taken with a compact Nikon S710, on canvas measuring…
