Happy New Year!
I hope this finds everyone doing well and that you all had a wonderful Holiday season!
Our club’s current photo exhibit at City Hall is coming to a close, but the city did extend the show until January 29, 2020. You will need to pick up your entries on the 29th (which is a Wednesday) from 1 - 5 pm. If you cannot pick them up during that time please let me know and we will arrange to have them picked up and then returned to you. The city’s contact person is Sydney Adam, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, I do not have a phone number for Sydney, but the pick-up time is already set for the above time and date.
Our next meeting is Tuesday, January 14, 2020. Dan Holmes is our guest speaker, he will be presenting “Composing in the Landscape World”. We are posting his flyer on our website so you can view it or you can checkout his website at http://danholmesphoto.com for more information on the presentation.
Dusty has sent me an updated list of upcoming club events that should afford some awesome photo possibilities. Here is a short list of upcoming trips:
San Fernando Mission - 1/18/2020
Golden Dragon Parade in Chinatown - 2/1/2020
Death Valley Field Trip - 2/21 - 23/2020
Valley of Fire Field Trip - 3/13 - 15/2020
Los Angeles County Air Show, Fox Field, Lancaster - 3/20 - 23/2020
That is a list for the next three months, we’ll have more and a updated list on the website soon! Remember to please sign up for a club event on the website so we have an idea of who is planning on attending. We will have to make reservations for the Death Valley and Valley of Fire field trips so those two are very important to sign up for. They will also be great trips, many photo possibilities and always a good time.
In closing, I’d like to say thank you for all of your well-wishes for my Granddaughter Ivorie! She is doing well! We received a great report last month, the chemo and radiation are doing their job and the cancer is disappearing. Of the two cancer spots on her lung, one is completely gone and the other has split in half and is very small. The doctors feel confident that it will be completely gone come March when her current round of treatment is scheduled to be complete. In the meantime, I will continue to drive Ivorie and her mom to the Valley Childrens Hospital in Madera every other week for treatment.
I am looking forward to seeing each of you next week. If you have any photos you’d like to share, please send them to me (via email, 4000 pixels on the longest side by 200 dpi) by Friday January 10, 2020 so I can include them in the slide presentation.
