I’m off to Calgary tomorrow to visit our son and his family. Best part is that our son and his wife are going skiing so I will have my grandson to myself. Ashton is 7 and in grade 2. I timed the trip to coincide with his Parent Teacher Interview. The teacher in me wants to know. lol.
Been out doing a lot of night shooting in the last couple of weeks; in the exchange and at the train station. We actually got out onto the tracks at the station while an engine came in. It happened so fast but I did get a shot. The theme this month at Camera Club is night/low light, hence the night pics.
Also, taught a couple more photography classes at Ralph Brown School. I wish that I could post some of the pictures that the kids have taken but since most of them are pictures of each other, I am not able to. I’m so proud of the great job that they’ve done. Turns out that holding the camera still is their single biggest challenge. We worked on that quite a bit and there was a big improvement.
Other than that I’ve been working on setting up a friend’s website. Check it out: www.digital35.ca. Tse Li Luk is the name of the photographer and he will be having an exhibition at the Millenium Library for the month of May. All proceeds from the exhibition will be going towards the Chinese Cultural Centre to celebrate the Chinese community having been here for 100 years. The images are all from the Chinese countryside that Tse Li took on a recent trip to China. This exhibition is definitely worth checking out. I am by no means a website designer, but know how to see up a site at www.smugmug.com , because they are the hosts of my 2 sites; this one and www.studio86.smugmug.com. The customer service at smugmug is simply the best and keeps me there. I don’t do a lot of work on the studio86 site as my www.chrismcwilliamsphotography.com site keeps me busy enough. Anyways, I will post one of Tse Li’s images for a sneak peak at the exhibition.
That’s it for today. The sun is shining but winter seems to be back. When will it end? Or rather will it end? Who knows. One can only hope.
These are not the images that I will be entering this month. I will post my entries after the judging night. I also have changed the resolution and size of these images.
Here are a couple of images from my night shooting and then one of the images that will be on exhibition at the library:
I’m sure that you’ll recognize these spots if you’re from Winnipeg.
And now one from a place faraway with mystique and beauty-China:
Isn’t that a beautiful image! Mark May on your calendar and come down to the Millenium Library to see more of Tse Li Luk’s work.
That’s it for now.
