There will be a general meeting on Wed August 10 at 7:00 in the Ocotillo Room. You will hear Tom Cadwalader drone on about photography. No Wait! That would be Tom Cadwalader speaking about Drone Photography. Much more exciting.
There will be no Education meetings in June, July , or August.
The next Education meeting will be Sept 21 in the Kino Center.
The topic will be announced in early Sept.
Thom Sharples has arranged a field trip for us on Friday, Aug 12.
We will leave the Madera Clubhouse/CATC Parking Lot at 9:30 and drive to Tubac.
We will shoot the business district until ~11:00. Then we will move to Elviras. https://www.elvirasrestaurant.com/
We have received approval to shoot the inside of Elvira’s (both restaurant & retail shop) from 11:00 to 12:15 PM. We will then take advantage of the Summer Lite Lunch specials that Elvira's is offering.
Join us for a fun outing. There is always plenty to shoot in Tubac - and the August contest topic is Historical and November is Food.
We will be sending out more info in August, and we will be looking for RSVPs for lunch then.
Photos from field trips can be seen on our Flickr site.
Photos from the March field trip to the Tubac Presidio can be seen here.

Q3 2022 Photo Challenge
The member’s Quarterly Photo Challenge runs from July 1 to September 30, 2022.
The new Q3 2022 Member's Challenge topic is Nature.
Nature includes everything from animals to plants, to trees and forests, mountains & valleys, weather, stars in the sky, etc.
It is a perfect time of the year for that with Monsoon storms, cactus and other flowers in bloom, and the Milky Way in the best position for photography.
Take a walk through Madera Canyon to see flowers and plants from the monsoon rains that only come out this time of year.
I like a description I saw on the web: Nature photography focuses on capturing the natural elements of our world — plants, animals, and landscapes. Photos can capture wide views of far-reaching landscapes as well as small details of insects and plants.
Send me up to 3 photos taken during the quarter.
Remember, any post processing is allowed. If you add elements from another photo (like sky replacement) those elements must have been photographed by you within the quarter.
See the pcqc.org website for a link to the detailed rules.
So this is a great excuse to get out and shoot.
Have fun & stay safe,
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
