Please join us Thursday December 5, 2013 at 7:30pm for Honors Night at Butler Longhorn Museum located at 1220 Coryell, League City, TX. The doors open early at 7:00pm for fellowship with guests and members. You can go here to find out more about the Honors program.
The assignment for September is "Composite". The photo had to be taken after September 1, 2013. This is the last remaining opportunity to compete for Photographer of the Year.
As usual, we also have the 'Open' category for photo submissions. All photos for submission in either category must be posted on the sign-up sheet no later than 7:20pm. This is so the Honors Night Director has time to enter them into the computer for a timely start of the meeting. Your dues must be current for this year in order to submit.
We look forward to all members and visitors joining us for the meeting.

Take this fun online X-Rite color challenge to test your color acuity. I'll tell you now that I scored a 14; a lower number being better. It does take a few minutes to complete the challenge, but I think you will find it interesting. Shoot me an email with a screenshot of your results and I'll post a small spreadsheet of all our results when I've collected enough of them. I'll leave out any personal data or names, only collecting the results from x number of people.
Andre Gavin is a London based photographer. He captures hauntingly beautiful photos of old abandoned buildings, found as they were left, in unnamed locations. My first thoughts went to some of our own Barry Armer's photos; similar to his style. The photos tell a story all their own, without any description, though there are captions with them.
The link to them is located here. Enjoy.
