A meeting, an opening, an outing ... oh my!

It's been a busy past week for the EAPA. We started off with a well received meeting in which images from the "Not at Eye Level" assignment were shown with critique supplied by Larry Bolton, Pete Medcalf and Mary Freamo. A good learning experience for all in attendance. There was some confusion over one picture of wood that didn't seem to meet the assignment until Alex Loshak explained that it was "A knot ... at eye level". Thus earning himself a round of applause!
    The juried exhibit opening at the Brockville Country Club the next night was well attended. Special thanks to Kingston Photographic Club members Bruce Gunion and Barry Hanna for making the trip down on a rainy night. It was a big night for Dan Garswood who not only won Best of Show and two other awards but also proved that rumours of the darkroom's demise have been somewhat exaggerated. Jan Medcalf also walked away with two ribbons. See the complete list below. Mary Freamo also announced the theme for next year's exhibit : Time.
   On the Saturday following approximately twenty-five members attended the outing to The Boneyard near Cardinal ... an amazing turnout. We expect to see you all for the night shoot in January :) After lunch at the truck stop some people went back for more shooting. We hope to see some of the images at a future meeting (and possibly in next year's juried exhibit!).
