President, Fred Cullis, shares his thoughts about not waiting to capture the right shot.

Join us on Monday, November 27 at 7:30 pm in Cokesbury’s Auditorium C. Guest speaker, Ivan C. Thomas, will be doing his presentation “Photography as an expression of love through art, honest conversation and community building.”

The first Field Trip of the year to the historic Eastern State Penitentiary was a great success. Members’ images of this eerie prison can be seen on pages 22-25.
