This is the camera clubs second before and after series this year. The first time I did 3, but one was left out by accident so this year I only took the time to work on 2. original RAW files on the left were by Peter Jones then Warren Bidell RAW, my edit of their photos are on right. I did not shoot either image.
CCoH theme for Gimmie Your best shot for August was shadows and silhouettes.
Here are the 3 I submitted.
and here are ones I either considered or they were not taken this year so not eligible.
Mood: A temporary state of mind or feeling. Inducing or suggestive of a particular feeling or state of mind
For the most part, my personal photos are just for me because I enjoy taking them, seeing and trying new things. Small version are shared online but I hardly ever print.
The camera club’s theme for July was liquid, which happened to be several of the things I had on my “shoot ideas list”. Doesn’t everyone have one of those?
My first thought was photos of my cats, but photos for this had to be taken this year, so I decided to shoot some of the set – ups from my list.
According to Wikipedia, “liquid takes the shape of a container” and maintains “almost-fixed volume.” So there you have it. Cats are liquids!
CCoH is setting up for another record year of outings. Not sure how Mike can find and schedule this many things to see and shoot for a group! If you’re a member you also get to read Bob’s informative newsletters, and see the great videos John puts together… and that’s just a few of the perks.
This trip included Smokey Mountain Railroad in Bryson City. I want to visit again and ride the train for my birthday this year- well that or plant a white birch tree grove.
