This program gives us a reason to look around New Westminster and explore various photographic techniques. We are challenging members take your cameras to explore five different areas in New Westminster, and to share your favourite image from each location for our program.  Beyond the designated location, there is no limitation on composition, technique, subject, etc.  Let your creative vision out to play.

  2. Queens Park
  3. Columbia Street from 8th to 4th Street
  4. City Hall and surrounding area (Armory, Friendship Garden and Tipperary Park)
  5. East Columbia Street from Sherbrooke to Braid Street.

You may submit only one image per location.  So, the challenge will be to pick your favourite from among many., Images must be submitted to the faux competition by no later than 11:30 PM on February 18th

At the meeting we will share the images, and learn how different each one of us sees the "same" area. Please come prepared to share a bit of your experience and something about the making of your images.
