Downtown Lancaster Walk-About Field Trip - May 5, 2012
On a chilly May morning, a group of ten photographers met at 6:00am on Lancaster Boulevard for a group photo and to discuss early morning photo opportunities. The light at sunrise is wonderful and the long shadows cast from the rising sun cast create interest, and the “sweet light” adds depth to textures, patterns, and accentuates colors and reflections. It was a very quiet morning, and gave each photographer some alone time to think about composition and exploring new ideas.
This field trip was about celebrating the city and trying to capture its character. The city of Lancaster has been revitalized and it was good to explore downtown and visit the Artist’s Loft, American Heroes Park, senior housing, the colorful new apartments, and many things we take for granted when we just drive by.
After a few hours, some of us headed over the Katz N' Jammers Cafe for a breakfast. At 11:00am the Museum of Art and History MOAH, opened for the first time in the new space on the Blvd. It’s a beautiful building and wonderful addition supporting the arts. Everyone should make a point to visit MOAH.
