Please join us Thursday, October 19th, 7:00 pm, at First Lutheran Church for our next meeting.
You won’t want to miss it! It will be a visual treat to sit back and be inspired by the beautiful imagery of the natural world by Michael Lustbader.
Our Naturescapes Reception and Awards Presentation was well attended last Saturday. If you haven’t seen the shows – Naturescapes and Companions – try to get to San Marcos early and take a look before the meeting, San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins St.
Hopefully we will have a slideshow of it for our meeting, but it’s always better to see it in person.

Over the past 30+ years, Michael Lustbader’s images of the natural world have been published by National Geographic Publications, Audubon, Sierra Club, Eastman Kodak, Oxford Scientific Films, and literally hundreds of other book, calendar, and paper product companies, world-wide.
Michael has co-authored “Close-up Photography–Capturing Nature’s Intimate Landscapes” and “How to Photograph Close-ups in Nature” in addition to “Butterfly Dreams—The Seasons through Haiku and Photographs”, a compilation of his images with original translations of traditional Japanese haiku by William J. Higginson.
