PORTRAITS OF A CAMERA CLUB

Today we went on an outing with the Redlands U3A Camera Club. I took my macro lens because I need lots of practice with it. I took portraits of some of the members.


Bill J is the Camera Club organiser.




The two Bills. Irish Bill and Swiss Bill.

  9. Your comments are coming over the post. Are they supposed to do that? Maybe it's my weird computer. Neat photos. I like the guy with the hat.

  13. Diane, Your portaits are wonderful! Don't you just love people's faces? I mean real faces. The way we were made to be. Can't stand the botox fake insanity that seems to be so prevalent right now.

  23. What a wonderful group. You made some very good shots. My "garden assistant" has not been much help. He just wants to look good while he pretends to work! Nancy H

  24. Julie, If your local U3A hasn't got a Camera Club, start one. it's fun and you are certainly a talented photographer to run such a club.

    Cheers,
