See you there!
This Sunday, April 14,2019, we have a big day planned. A sunrise shoot benefiting the Cambodian Children's Fund and another “film” challenge in Graffiti Alley.
First the sunrise shoot. We will meet at Sheldon Lookout which is just at the west end of the Humber Pedestrian bridge. We usually park on Marine Parade Drive. As sunrise is at 6:20, get there early. The group will be setup along the water. I will be accepting your donations and giving them to the Host, Alicia at breakfast. Suggested donation amount is $10
Breakfast will be at Sunset Grill located in the Metro shopping mall at Parklawn and Lakeshore.
After this, we will make our way to Graffiti Alley, meeting at the East end on Spadina just 20 feet South of Queen. Parking is free on city streets till 1pm. Don't be leaving any tempting goodies visible in your car if you park on the street. That area is not getting better.
The “film” challenge this time will be themed. Shadows and Lines. B&W preferred. Again 24 consecutive shots. Jpgs will be collected when we finish at Loblaws at Portland and Queen. We'll have coffee inside. As before, participation is optional and I will produce a slideshow. Each person's 5 best shots will be in the show.
Continuing this marathon outing, several of us will be doing a bit of a walkabout up Spadina for an hour or two. All are welcome to join.
So, to summarize:

11:00 Challenge finished

- The last day for entries into the OCCC competition for ECC members will be Monday April 1st.
- OCCC rules technically allow an image size to differ from the recommended 1920 wide x 1080 high. But, our ECC website has been set to only accept entries that conform to the 1920 wide x 1080 high requirement. So this means that your images cannot exceed 1920 wide or 1080 high. They can be less than 1920 x 1080 but they can’t be higher.
Please join us on Monday, March 4th at 7pm for our Award Salon for Creative Altered Reality Competition. Listen to the Winner presentations. Participate in our fun 50/50 draw and watch a member show or two.
