Yesterday's Club Meeting

It was a fun evening. Despite the chilly evening, nearly 20 people braved the cold and joined us at Wilson's Outlook at New Farm for a sunset shoot of the Story Bridge and the city skyline.



















Afterwards, most of us proceeded to the Story Bridge Hotel for our End of Term dinner and a bit of fellowship.



Now for those of you who came to the photo shoot, please send us your 3 best shots you took last night. It doesn't matter what you photographed, we'd like to see it at the next meeting.

Send them to bbohlen@bigpond.com. before Friday, 5th of July.

Next Meeting Monday 24th June - 4.30 PM


We got rained out last meeting so we'll try again to go for our evening and night time photo shoot, practicing those tips Jason told us at the last meeting. Rosalind suggested Wilson Outlook just past the Story Bridge, so that's where we'll go. Being the last meeting for term 3, we'll have our mid-semester dinner, instead of lunch, so we might slip down to the Story Bridge Hotel at Kangaroo Point for a bite to eat, that'll be nice, won't it? Bring your spouse/partner/friend if want too.

For the photo shoot, don't forget to bring a tripod, if you have one. We meet at 4.30 PM at Wilson Outlook, Bowen Terrace, Corner Moray Street, New Farm. See instructiona below.

After dinner we can stop in River Terrace at Kangaroo Point to take some night shots from the cliffs, over Brisbane if you want.



How to get there:

1. Take Freeeway into town
2. Exit freeway left at Stanley Street
3. Take 1st right into Allen Street (keep in left lane)
4. Turn right into Vulture Street (keep in left lane)
