WorkBoat Schedule

Please forgive the misinformation about the flotilla parade time. In the past the newspaper printed it but they did not this time and I was just trying to recall from past experience. At least my time mentioned was early and anyone there might have seen that they had not started yet, but that they were preparing to. Also - I hope interested parties made it on Saturday - it was a beautiful day for photography there and I got number of nice images and noticed many people with cameras, although…

Photo Op 2

Thought I had included the time for the boat parade. It starts about 10:00 AM. If you are in the area you can tell when it starts because the lead boat is usually a large tug which gives quite a few steam whistles as the flotilla starts. I have been watching this event for about five or six years and it looks great on a camcorder also if you happen to have one - of course a lot of the newer digital cameras have the movie feature included. Three years ago this group voted to have Ganges be the… Continue

Photo Op

Just a reminder for a Great Photo Op this weekend. It is the annual "Work Boat Festival" with over 60 boats of that class. On Saturday many of them will be tied up to the local docks and have "Open House" from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM and they are very colorful, interesting and photographable. At the same time most of the boats in the harbor will be "at their best" and there is a festive air - last year a local crab boat was having a great time selling crab..On Sunday, as their finale - they form a… Continue

Posting Response

Thank you Adrian for the quick response - I didn't thnk to look at the forum because I didn't think tt was a Forum issue, but next time I'll look both places. It was gratifiying to see that the quiestioin gave others a chance to add their comments. I would think some kind of "scheule" set up mentioned by Ernie might be appropriate - especially as we will be having more activities.

Wondering if it would be possible for a reminder to be posted (as a blog perhaps) to which week we should be submitting images to Adrian for the Coffee company. I was in there today and was disappointed (of course) because I had nothing showing. Maybe I'm the only one who missed out, but a little nudge would sure help - until I (we) get used to it.

Aerial Photos

"Earth From Above" is the result of the aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand's five-year airborne odyssey across six continents. It's a spectacular presentation of large scale photographs of astonishing natural landscapes. Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet. I did see some photos which I would have cropped. Count the number of places which you have visited.

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

Anna McColm

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.
