"Simes Still Life"
Another photo group with whom I have spent considerable time is the Plymouth Meet-up. Although not an actual camera club, they do provide photo opportunities and interesting guest speakers.
The Simes House has had quite the run since it was built in 1863. Beginning as a home, it transformed into an inn, a girls' summer camp and back into its original purpose, a home. In 2017, it will make one more major change as it becomes the area's community meeting space, retail office, and affordable housing.
The day before it started this major renovation a handful of photographers were allowed access to the multi-level domicile. With trusty tripod in tow, I spent almost two hours on all three floors. This set-up in the living room kept asking to be shot - so I did!
Better get out the atlas as this year I will be featuring some of the more famous cities of the world! Here are some interesting facts about one of them. Just what city would I be visiting?

the biggest there is in Europe.
vibrant city has a very temperate Mediterranean climate, one of the nicest
climates on the European continent with a lot of sunshine.

generally clear and blue with little to no rain.
