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.

Q4 2022 Photo Challenge
The member’s Quarterly Photo Challenge runs from October 1 to December 31, 2022.
The new Q4 2022 Member's Challenge topic is Looking Up or Looking Down.
The photos need to be taken between Oct 1 and Dec 31, 2022
This challenge is mostly about composition.
The photo should have the perspective of looking up or looking down on your subject – just not straight across.
Think about looking up or down at least 45 degrees or more from the horizontal. Examples might include an airplane in flight, or an ant out for a walk, or the full moon overhead.
A typical landscape or portrait is not Looking Up or Looking Down.
Now you can be really creative.
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
