It's thistle time. Check out the local empty blocks
and paddocks for loads of thistles full of pollen and bees. Kororoit
Creek Road has a stack of them near Grieve Parade. Guaranteed bees, bees

What about a new start for the new year? Why not a 365 project? A photo a day for the rest of the year.
These long evenings are great for backlit photos.
More new years' good ideas
Last night was our end of years awards night and party night. Over the last year we have had a terrific selection of photos put into our competitions. Each year sees the quality getting better and better. Just goes to show that we can all keep learning and improving.
Hello all! It's midweek again, hope everyone's having a great week.
5 Minutes of Fame
For the next meeting, we are inviting members to present on a skill they have learned throughout the year and a few images they are proud to have created. You can share anything that has piqued your love for photography up to another level! If you are interested in presenting please contact the committee so that we can include you in the queue of presenters.
