    Nothing like keeping an open mind...

    So Shawn, Lee, when are you joining the camera club? Seems like you have found new and unexplored value that could add immensely to your work.

    Greek Festival

For years we all wished we could meet another film shooter or two. Now we have a traffic jam. Who says film is dead? It is just more expensive.

    PS: In keeping with our usual culinary interests I just noticed that those dates overlap a delicious Greek festival about a 20 minute drive from here.

    We're going through our initiation right now. Currently working with a laminated copy of the rules, once we've committed them to memory and passed the written test the members take a vote.... fingers crossed.

    Remember - no creativity allowed! I think I would have found myself in a situation where it would be difficult to keep my pie hole shut.

    I'm not good with math, so I keep failing the 'rule of thirds' section on the written exam.

    It's clear that photography is there to serve as an exercise in providing memberships of such fine constitution with pictures that are cohesive, rule obedient, and free of any annoying deviance of the standards.
    Don't you dare being creative, or you will be slapped three times with a ruler across the fingers of your focusing hand - the 'hand of man' will be expelled!

    Given the mindset I was in (finished shooting at that location and headed back to the car while waiting on companions to finish shooting), it was kind of entertaining to listen to the guy keep rambling, and piling on one rule after another. What was really funny was that the kit he was carrying complied with only one of the 'hardware' rules he said he'd taught in adult continuing education classes for 20 years. He also glanced at our setups while he was laying out the rules, I think in part to make sure he wasn't offending greatly.

    He wasn't nasty about it at all, just seemed to want to help us out with good advice in a grandfatherly sort of way.

    Dolly usually comes along so it is a slow delicious meal rather than a visual consumption. Any slow speed will do as long as the grape leaves keep coming.

    "Rules" for Nature Photography (notice capitals) reminds me of a local photography club fascinated with the creative aspects of 0 and 1.
