SIG Meeting, September 19, 2006 - meeting notes:
Ten photographers attended the Digicam SIG at Parkdale Library on
September 19. Brian and Drew Jacobs brought their brand new Canon
Rebel XTi and were gracious in letting us touch and feel.
Congratulations to the Jacobs.
The assignment was photos about Labor Day. Sam Gompers was sure to
flinch in his grave at such levity about the Labor Movement. Patty
Beasley's decorating of the presentations was cool.
*Patty Waits Beasley - Featuring loafing and eating, one photo of
seven hummers jamming the feeder, unbelievable; photos of our
friends in convivial indolence; and shots of a shrimp eating
*Bill Draper - Caught boats and things they had in tow as they
busied a wide Padre Island Canal, kids towed in a tube, youths in
colorful kayaks; a gentleman pulling a cart of ice chest and fishing
gear up the ramp at Bob Hall pier.
*Joan Stephens - Joan and friend gave the gambling ship Texas
Treasure a whirl. She photographed the big ship, the pilot and
auxiliary boat, and the gaudy bus that brought the gamers from town.
*John Hoffmann - Broke in the new Caddy with a trip to Minnesota
near the Canadian border, the headwaters of the Mississippi.
Gorgeous shots of foliage, lakes foggy on a cool morning, loons and
bald eagles, and fish in the clear water; a colorful totem; and
*Drew and Brian Jacobs - They shot the holiday at Fort Stockton and
Big Bend National Park. The rocks and desolation of the desert set
off beautiful skies, desert flowers, and nature's shapes and colors;
historic landmarks and the descriptive plaques; colorful hot air
balloons being readied for flight and in the air.
Assignment for next meeting is 'Critters,' you imagine.
Next meeting October 17, 7 PM at Parkdale Library
