Event Description

During a recent visit to the aquarium in Sidney I discovered that the Salish Sea is full of surprise and delight.  The variation in colours, textures, creatures and their behaviours invited the imagination to take over.   It is amazing what is under the surface of our seas.

On viewing my shots of the day it struck me that there was a sense of theatre and performance reminiscent to the overstated performances of Old Hollywood…. The flaming red hair of the screen siren, the flowing white boas and satins of Mae West…   Even some of the facial expressions reminded me of actors of old like Peter Lorre or the cameo’s of Alfred Hitchcock….

Wonderful, Margaret! Love the titles. You must have watched a lot of old movies in your time.

Margaret (Our Hollywood star) meets the Underworld.  The show is exceptional.  Creative, colorful imagery.

Ah, I wondered where the title had come from. Good juxtaposition, and I'm looking forward to seeing it today!

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
