New Member Images On Display

Our Camera Club displays pictures in the Kanata Seniors Centre, as a way to promote the club and show off the great work of our members.  In early January, we replaced five of the pictures, so be sure to check out the new pictures the next time you are in the Centre. The pictures will be changed again in May and September.   At the April meeting, we will explain how all members can submit pictures for display.  In the meantime, please keep in mind that we are currently restricted to 8″ x 10″ format (portrait or landscape) due to frame and matting limitations, as you take pictures this winter. 

Thanks to the following photographers, whose pictures are now on display:

  • Debbie Pinard – “Danger”
  • Lynn Haggarty – “Calgary Library”
  • Jeff Card – “Shirley’s Bay in Winter”
  • Lynn Dion – “Upholstery Store”
  • Bruce Turner – “Soweto 2017”
