We'll “Ooh” and “Aah” at Members' Photos
on Dec. 7
Are you ready to be dazzled? As we traditionally do, we will close out the year with a “slide slam” in which members show us their favorite photographs - digital of course, no longer slides.
Wednesday, December 7, is the date. The meeting will be held at the Phipps Garden Center, 1059 Shady Avenue in Shadyside. Doors open at 6:30 PM for socializing, a business meeting begins at 7:30, and the program starts at 8:00.
There are a few rules to make sure that every participant has an equal opportunity:
Photographers must pre-register by emailing Debbie Kalbfleisch at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling her at 724.651.5426 by Wednesday,
The program will feature beautiful images of albatrosses, petrels, tropicbirds, auklets, puffins, and more. Geoff says his presentation will not be a comprehensive treatment of these diverse families of birds. But he hopes it will be enough for us to share his curiosity and interest in seabirds.
The first 10 photographers to respond will be able to present their show. Because of time limitations, only 10 can be accepted.
Each photographer will be allowed up to 6 minutes of presentation time. If fewer than 10 photographers pre-register, the presenters' time will be adjusted upward.
Photos must be contained on a thumb drive and be compatible with Microsoft PowerPoint. No images may be stored and downloaded from the Cloud.
THIS HAWK THINKS IT'S AN OWL We know an owl can turn its head to face backward, but this Red-tailed Hawk was able to do it, too. Tom Moeller, who will
present some of his favorites at our “slide slam,” photographed this contortionist in August 2016 at Duck Hollow in Allegheny County. It's a juvenile, as you can
tell by its tail: barred and dull brown instead of an adult's bright, plain reddish tail.
