Out and About ...... MLPC

Every now and then, PACC get the opportunity to spend some time with members from other clubs.

Mawson Lakes Photography Club had planned a photo walk around Port Adelaide and issued an invite for us to join them.  3 PACC members joined them for the walk - myself, our Vice President Joy and member Robert Stubbs.  David, our Treasurer was there, but he counted himself as representing the other team, as he is also a member of MLPC.

Here are just a few photos from PACC members from our night around the Port.




I always find it intriguing that so many photographers can visit the same area, yet see so many different things to photograph.

Big thank you to our members for allowing me to share their images here :)

Mawson Lakes Photography Club meets at 7.30 pm on the first and third Thursday of each month at the Mawson Centre 2-8 Main Street, Mawson Lakes.

2017 POTY Competition Results

Well, that was a big night! In total, 194 images were submitted by our members for consideration for Photograph of the Year (POTY) for 2017.

124 PDIs & 70 Prints were judged by a panel of 3 judges - Chris Schultz, Susie Lipert & Peter Phillips. The evening flowed quickly and smoothly with the judges giving some wonderful feedback on the top images. Many thanks to the judges for their comments. Many thanks to David & Jack for ensuring a quick turnaround on the prints - quite a task considering it was accomplished in the dark!

Out and about .... Sunset in Port Adelaide

Our Treasurer, David, suggested an impromptu gathering in the Port to get some sunset/night shots and to have a bit of a play with our cameras.

A few members gathered near the clipper ship, City of Adelaide and went for a short walk along the docks while the sun was setting.

It was a fun night out and 2 1/2 hours just disappeared into the blink of an eye!  It was agreed that we must do it again some time soon!

PACC Members are encouraged to keep an eye out in the Facebook Members Only Group, InFocus, to see if any other impromptu outings are mentioned.

If you are reading this and you are not a member, but would like to join, membership for 2018 will be open after our AGM, on the 21st November 2017.

Feel free to visit our Facebook page to see more top images, or if you like, sign-up for our Newsletter and get the latest news on the happenings at the club via email.

Cheers for now
