A Few Reminders


Don’t forget we have a St Clair sunrise Photowalk scheduled for this Sunday, 10 March. Meet at 7:00 AM by the shark bell. We have arranged for the sun to rise at about 7:30 AM. 

A-Z Challenge

During our next meeting (on Monday 11 March) we will project submitted images responding to the letters C and D. The interpretation of each letter is up to you. Please email your photos to Bob Dagg at slides.dpsnz@gmail.com by midnight Fri. 8 March. Title your images with your name and the letter, e.g. Freddie Mercury A or Elizabeth Windsor B. Images should be in jpeg/jpg format, less than 2 MB, and not longer than 1620 pixels on the horizontal and 1080 on the vertical.

You can also post your images as a comment to the C and D posts that David Steer has published on our closed Facebook page (for paid-up members). The purpose of this challenge is to encourage us all to take photos regularly and to share and comment on them. The spirit of this challenge is to generate new work, not to use images from your archive.
