February 5 Program
Our January 8 meeting was called off because of
very cold weather (this is Wisconsin). So we are
starting 2015 with the same terrific program as
listed in the January newsletter. It is a slideshow of
John and Dixie Lowin photographs taken in Africa.
Some of the old timers in the club have seen these
pictures, and will want to see them again. For the
new members of the club seeing them for the first
time will be a real treat, not to be missed.
If time allows, there will be a discussion about
improving vacation and travel photography. Send
Sandra Weber one such digital image, or bring it to
the meeting on a memory stick.
