Meeting notes of last month
omitted the superb pictures and excellent presentation by Joan
Stephens regarding her trip to Peru - actually her second trip to
Peru. Her People ..were colorfully dressed, and caught in poses of
the culture. A porter under load, more than his weight; Joan and the
Shaman, Joan photographed in a hair-washing ritual; window washer;
weavers in colorful costume, at their trade, the finished yarn, and
at the market; teacher and school kids in colorful dress; a potter
at his ceramics, beautiful powder-blue jug with pastel accents; and
a porter on a green train.
Speaking of trips, the October showing started with Ken Parson's
recent trip to the greater Hong Kong area. He had already sent Black
& White pictures of numerous Hong Kong skyscrapers. Ken's pictures
featured views of the Taj Mahal and all its reflecting pools and
adjacent mosques. There were photographs of Macao and Koolan areas,
including junks and The Royal Place guard (remember Anna and the
King of Siam.) A super neat travel presentation by Ken. This
meeting, we had Ken in person to provide a travelogue to his photos.
Pam Bomar showed some Hurricane cloud photos. Some very interesting
colors shown. Her cloudscape photos showed clouds through heavy tree
cover - really neat perspective.
Patty showed Port A boarding up for Hurricane Rita as well as her
packing up cars for the trip to San Antonio. She also showed some
NASA satellite photos of the Hurricane clouds - WOW! Then there was
a photograph of 13 humming birds at one feeder. Her cloudscape
photos included water/cloud mix, brightly sun lit clouds, sunset
clouds and one rainbow and clouds (those are hard to get).
Bill Draper showed clouds with reflections off the Laguna Madre.
These were taken off his back deck.
Brian Jacobs showed some clouds at night and clouds reflecting off
area waters. There were several photos showing telephone lines
highlighted via a background of clouds. He also had an
interesting/innovative photo of clouds looking up the side of a high
rise building. We get better all the time.
Bruce Switalla had some stunning photographs taken out of an
airplane window on a recent trip to El Paso. He also had cloud
photos with mountains in the background. Bruce then took some photos
from the roof of Sunrise Mall which included cloud reflections off
DB Kline showed photos of large cumulus clouds taken along Shoreline

photos of clouds that neatly outlined telephone poles and associated

All very breathtaking.
