Welcome

Established more than 40 years ago, the Williamstown Camera Club includes residents of Williamstown, Newport, Altona, Laverton, Footscray and adjacent suburbs. There are 22 meetings per year in which members can develop their photographic skills, socialise with others interested in photography and to engage in friendly competition with the aim of becoming better photographers.

Meetings
The Club meets on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 7:45pm at
Walker Close Community Centre,
180 Millers Road,
Altona North.

See the calendar for meeting dates.

Come along and join us!

Actually, I’m not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I'm not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren't cooks.

Friday fun to start the new year

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 and more bees. If you're like me and want to pinch a few to take home, use secatuers and some really thick gloves as they have some mean barbs on them.

What about a new start for the new year? Why not a 365 project? A photo a day for the rest of the year.
