Event Description

These are some Reflections of reflections taken during our visit to Venice and Verona last fall... Venice is such a magical place to play with camera, there is something to capture everywhere... Much of the work is multi-level reflections... some are twisted, some are metaphorical and others are reflections on the history of Venice..  but lots of Reflections in Glass... 

I also slipped in a couple of other glitzy shots just for the fun of it...  

Hope you enjoy... cheers... MCB

WOW...what a show.  My oh my.
Venice Watchman has a painterly feel.  Especially since Margaret has  made the people's faces abstract.
This layer approach is new for Margaret or least by Margaret new for me.  Well done.  I was attracted to: Diamond Fields, Body Masks and Phantom Euro.
The colors were yummy.
The whole show says visit Venice.  Or at least visit Venice through Margaret's images and creations.

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.
