- Photo Share
Scotland, presented by David Olson. “Spent a month last year in Scotland and was very taken, not only by the beautiful and rugged scenery, but by the history of the land, all the way back to the Bronze Age. My intention is not to bore you with vacation pictures, but impart some of the awe and emotion I felt being immersed in the Scottish Highlands.”
You may send up to two images to share with the group. (You can send in any photos taken with any camera. It doesn’t have to be the monthly theme.) Tom Delaney has given us the following photo theme.
April theme: Flowing, Flapping, Fluid (verb). From a skirt blowing in the wind, to a flag unfurling, to a meandering stream. What does flowy look like to you?
For the Photo Share, send one or two images to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Monday, April 18th, and put April Photo Share – Flowing, Flapping, Fluid in the Subject line.
To prepare your images, we no longer have to resize our photos! Save them with the color space sRGB, and name them 1FirstName_LastName and 2FirstName_LastName. For example, 1Linda_Avitt.
