Kelby Shoot aug 28
San Francisco as Elaine, Joani, Jim, Milt, Peyton, Tony, Mike, and Carol knew. (Michelle is beyond wifi connections in Croatia).
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.
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?
city and its country during the dry season which is from December up to
Palace - this is a remarkable palace where time seemed to have stopped.
History Museum is home for various country history memorabilia and antiques.
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.
destinations like the Notre Dame Cathedral, Quan Am Pagoda, and the Dam Sen Water Park
