Anyone up for a field trip to the BC Museum in Victoria and the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" exhibition that's running until April 6?   We can add lunch and a side bar of some photography of our own, maybe walking the Galloping Goose trail or ...?

Arvil, Thanks for your comment about the Red Wall. That day was so magical. This image is a reminder of the perfect symmetry of that whole week...

Dear Arvil, Your observation about attention concerning the clouds and not the land in Nebraska Storm was very intentional on my part. Thanks for noticing. It was WILD to be so near such amazing power....

Hi Jen, No we don't have anything written down, and maybe we should have guidelines for people who are first using the site. Good idea. We all just make the same mistake and then get told! Silly, eh? And I don't think there's any other "mistakes" you can make, other than perhaps being careful who you make suggestions to about their photos. Some of us don't mind and some do. I don't, so feel free! And welcome to the club. Your photos are wonderful, and I'm sorry to see them go. Put them back in a couple at a time, maybe once a week, and you'll get lots of comments.

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.
