Holiday Season

Christmas day is 7 days away, and lights, decorations and festivities are in the air in New England. Plymouth Digital Photographers, our thriving photo club of now over 600 members, had a party on the 10th, a great way to celebrate the season. We rented a nicely decorated room, everyone brought food to share, we set up a portrait 'studio', thank you Kelly and Julie, brought hats and had a blast! The cash bar was a nice touch, and the bartender said we were welcome back anytime. We'll be back next year!

Our working cast of 8 volunteers, everyone helps put on events and I couldn't ask for a better group of people to keep things running smoothly. Good friends and so talented in many areas!!

                         My friend Rick P. took this photo at the party and put me in a bottle afterwards :-)
More great talent!

Maureen B. and Jean C.took these photos and let me use them, thanks!

Julie O, who designed my Christmas card this year, and last as well as all our other graphics. She's a good friend, I'm going to miss her when she moves to the west coast.

Some of the 50+ photographers at our party. As in there were more than 50 people there, not as in age. Although many of us are a bit over 50 yrs:-)

Graham, our English gentleman

These lovely, fine women, Kelly, Lori and Adele, made everything run smoothly for our big photo seminar in November with 110 people attending for the day. Photo by Jeremie.

Another great Wayback weekend in CT at Amy H's house in Ridgefield! We visited a wild art gallery, and old Tavern, yarn store, Indian food for lunch and just had fun.

Famous photographer, Rick Sammon, Canon of Light Explorer and presenter. He gave the very well received seminar in November, and is coming back in June to do a workshop for us. He's also written 36 books, and he gave me a signed copy! Photo by Jeremie.

Joe and Ian, last minute photo as we are leaving to take Ian to UMass Amherst for his freshman year.

September 3rd, 2010, happy for Ian, sad for me. The good thing is he's really liking college!
