Report on our November Meeting We expected to be judging Chapter 21 Photos, but they never arrived on time. Despite that, the meeting was a very good one, thanks to Phil Block, who gave a presentation on composition, stressing the rule of thirds and leading lines. Plus Jerry Harders gave a little presentation of how sometimes it is possible to find more than one picture in a picture. Wisconsin Circuit Exhibition of Photography Judging of entries to the Wisconsin Circuit Exhibition of Photography will be Sunday, April 15, and several of our members have volunteered to serve as judges and workers. If you desire to enter this competition go to http://wisconet.com to find out how to enter, and submit your photos before March 10, 2013. Outings Our next club outing will be to Old World Wisconsin to see and photograph how Christmas was celebrated in the old days. Some will go Dec. 1, and others Dec. 8. In either case meet at the south Park and Drive lot off of Watertown Plank Road, for car pooling. Meet there at 10:30am. Also, sometime this winter, Jerry Harders will make arrangements for an outing to the Tripoli Masonic Temple. Ample parking east of the building is available. The interior decorative tile in the temple is extraordinary. Exhibits at Luther Manor The current photo exhibit in the Welcome Center is by Bert Hartinger. In December that area will be devoted to holiday dcor, including a model train exhibit. After that we need either a volunteer or a conscript to put up a new exhibit.
