Recently, I received a newsletter from one of the camera clubs that I am a member of. Since I’ve been dealing with my health, the camera club participation fell by the wayside. I still paid my dues each year, but I didn’t participate. As I was reading the newsletter, I got an urge to compete again. The camera club has monthly competitions each month, and sometimes it has a theme. The season starts in September, and I have decided to rejoin and participate. The photo theme is Open, so it can be anything, but to get as many points as you can, it is good to stick with nature. Surprisingly, the camera club sort of frowns upon taking pictures of people. Yea, it’s terrible. I looked back at some of my old nature images and thought I would share a couple. I am planning to visit a bird sanctuary next week, so I’m sure to get some photos for September’s competition. Wish me luck.
