curious are always welcome, the odd and weird sometimes, depending
on the weather! Anyone interested in photography of any type,
no matter what your level of experience (professional, amateur, or
wannabe), is welcome to join our club. Membership is only $1.25/month

===== PARTING SHOTS ============================
All that is necessary for the forces of evil to win in the world
is for enough good men to do nothing.
Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines
what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
There is only one success – to be able to live your life in
your own way.
See you at our TUESDAY NOVEMBER 13 Monthly Meeting!
