This day we had seven of the usual suspects and one guest. Because most of us were getting up early the next morning we only stayed until about 8 p.m. Bill brought in a book on Photoshop and we talked about that for a while as well as other books. Terri and I used clear plastic sheets and stacks of pancakes to explain layers.

We talked about the next morning's LA field trip and Art Deco tour.
Bill asked about the petroglyphs at China Lake and how to get in to see them. Terri described the details on that while I told him about the many sites that are easier to get to. I remembered seeing some close-in (Rosamond, I think) but couldn't remember exactly where. I drew a sketchy map of how to get to Steam Well and the Red Mountain petroglyphs which you can almost drive right up to.
We got on the subject of scrapbooking for a while. Terri reiterated that you can create your own digital scrapbook then print the pages on your own printer, or through somewhere like Costco, then put them into a binder designed and sold for scrapbooking.
Then we talked about the variety of photos from the Wildflower field trip that were posted on the LPA web site.
We didn't have any new photos to show this night but hope to next week.
If you can, please join us each Friday evening at Denny's at the corner of Ave K and 20th West. We begin about 6:30 PM and usually go to at least 8:30 PM. You can drop by at anytime and stay for as long as you like (you don't even have to buy anything). Denny's has graciously provided us a section to ourselves and the service is great.
All photography related subjects are fair game and there's never a planned agenda. You can bring in your questions, your stories, your equipment, your photos (paper or digital), or even just yourself to sit, listen, and/or talk.
I would again like to extend a special invitation to both new members and the more expert members who would like to participate in these informal discussions. You are welcome to visit the LPA forum and leave your comments......
