Last night was the Annual Banquet for the Manitoba Camera Club. We had a lovely meal catered by Ludwig’s Catering from Bird’s Hill. As part of the banquet we always announce the winners and trophies are given out. I was the lucky recipient of 2 trophies. The first one was for this print in the monochrome category. There is a bit of a story that goes with this print. It was taken on a hill side in Calgary during a recent visit. My son, Andrew runs on the trails in this area and had come across this spot with 2 abandoned cars. The 4 of us, Andrew, his wife and son and myself, went on a hike to get to the spot and it was truly amazing to see 2 abandoned, rusted out old cars in the water, in the middle of nowhere. I would love to know the story of how the cars got there in the first place. One can only imagine. No roads and they ended up in the water. I hope the occupants were alright after this apparent off roading.
The second trophy that I received is one called The President’s Trophy and is given to a club member every year who makes a significant contribution to the club. I am honored to have gotten the trophy and will continue to work on making the Manitoba Camera Club a welcoming and valuable place for people interested in photography to come to.
