Photo assignments:

18. Seventeen enthusiastic DigiCam folks started off the New Year meeting on Tuesday, January 20, 2004 at the Parkdale Library.

The meeting started with an unannounced 2003 DigiCam photo contest. There were 10 photo assignments in year 2003. Nineteen different people showed over 700 photos of the various assignments. These photos were submitted  to a Digital Camera SIG leader in CA for judging.

And . . . . The winners are best photo to Dauris Granberry for her Gardens assignment shot and most interesting photo to Patty Beasley for her entry - Close Ups Macros of living things. Congratulations ladies. There were also 28 runners up winners by nine SIG photographers. Click HERE to see all of the winners and runners up.

Beware: we may have a contest in 2004!

The group then viewed MSN's THE YEAR IN PICTURES 2003. Fantastic pictures grouped into Editors Choice and Peoples Choice. These are best of the best.

Finally our monthly assignment was shown. The assignment was titled
"Christmas/Holidays: What it means to you."

To mention a few -

Bruce Switalla - Del Mar College Tuba concert

Patty Beasley - Family scenes, manger scene

John Hoffmann - Traditional eating

Susan Fabrish - Churches, La Posada boats

Herman Bell - Senior Friends Xmas party, Santa

Pam Bomar - People, grand daughter

Sharron Hord - Church, Xmas party, poinsettias

Bill Draper - 1950 Xmas in Korea, La Posada boats

Norm Gigstead - Outdoor lighting, decorations

John Hoffmann discussed our 2004 program. A list of 18 possible assignments was handed out for everyone's comments by e mail. Teaching/sharing/ideas were also exchanged. One idea is to share your favorite pictures say from a vacation or any other subject. Already, three people have volunteered to make a showing at the monthly meeting - just schedule the event.

In February, Ben Luna will make a presentation of his Hawaii photos. Of course we will show our monthly assignment photos. The assignment for showing February 17 is SUNRISES/SUNSETS.

For the scribe,
John Hoffmann
