Kelby Shoot aug 28

San Francisco as Elaine, Joani, Jim, Milt, Peyton, Tony, Mike, and Carol knew. (Michelle is beyond wifi connections in Croatia).

"Stone Mill"

Every year, Scott Kelby, PhotoShop Guru, conducts a worldwide photo day. Thousands of locations are available to get out and shoot. I had done two in Boston so I was looking for a change. Two members from my camera club were equally interested. I noticed there was a location in Lawrence, MA at a former mill. Since the weather forecast had rain scheduled, I thought this would be just right.

Mills abound! As we drove into the meeting spot I could not help to notice the block-long mills on both sides of the street. Some had been repurposed while others sat abandoned.

Stone Mill was a seven shot HDR as the conditions out the window were less than favorable.

This image was chosen by our group leader to represent our group in Kelby's International Photo Competition. I managed to win a year-long subscription to his magazine!

P.S. I just signed up for another trip to the Lawrence Mills - hopefully we'll be outside this time.

Where in the World?

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? 

visit this city and its country during the dry season which is from December up to February.

Reunification Palace - this is a remarkable palace where time seemed to have stopped. 

National History Museum is home for various country history memorabilia and antiques.

War Remnants Museum is where the items left after the war are kept. Upon touring around the museum, you will feel the terror that has happened during the war. It includes photographs, armories, tanks, jets, helicopters and many more.

many other destinations like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Quan Am Pagoda, and the Dam Sen Water Park dot this city
