Our July general meeting will be Wednesday, July 14th at 7pm in the Ocotillo Room at the Kino Center. Our guest speaker is John Flano Flanagan. He is a professional photographer specializing in storm chasing and night photography. This will be a fun and informative presentation and I hope you all can join us.
July 21 in the Kino Center, starting at 7:00 pm.
Jim and Rick will chair a discussion on editing the same photo to achieve different artistic results.
As our summer weather is here, we will not have a field trip from May until September this year. That will give us time to get some volunteers to help set up and coordinate our trips going forward. If you are interested in setting up a field trip and have a location in mind, please drop me a note and we can work out details. Our field trips have always been popular and we need some help putting them together.
Photos from the November field trip to Tohono Chul can be seen here.

Q3 2021 Photo Challenge
The member’s Quarterly Photo Challenge runs from July 1 to October 31, 2021.
The topic is Musical Lyrics.
We all have some songs whose lyrics we love and remember. Shoot a photo that represents some key words or phrase (or title) in such a song. The title of your photo should represent these lyrics. Also let us know the name of the song.
If you need some help go to Lyrics.com https://www.lyrics.com/ or AZLyrics https://www.azlyrics.com/
There you can find lyrics or song titles to match your photo; or ideas of what to shoot.
Country artists like John Denver have many songs with lyrics and key words that you can’t fail with. Think Country Roads or Rocky Mountain High. We have Mt Wrightson right in our own backyard. You don't need to be literal.
Members may submit any photo with that perspective - as long as it is taken during the current quarter.
See this page for a description and rules. Topics for the next challenges are also listed here. Submit all photos to jimmsp AT outlook.com
