Just because our next meeting isn’t until October shouldn’t mean we put our creativity aside for the summer. By all means, shoot documentary photos of family outings, vacations, pets, kids, etc etc. BUT also shoot creatively for entry into our first annual summer PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT. The hunt starts now and will close for submissions on September 30th. This means we are looking for pictures taken during this time frame. The intent is NOT to mine your archives for submissions. The rules are quite simple:

The contest is open only to paid up BPG members exclusive of the judges.

Submit one photo of each of the subjects listed below (10 in all)

You may submit your photos at any time until the contest closes, but you don’t have to submit them all at once. Remember, your poor scribe has to compile them into albums for judging!!!!

Send your photos jpeg format; 500-600 kb to:

Judging will take place during the month of September and the winner will be announced at our October meeting (and be awarded a prize – NO it’s not a Timmie’s Card!!!!)

Points will be awarded for capturing the subject as well as adherence to those factors that make a great photograph…. you know, center of interest, lighting, composition, etc etc

The top three entries will be shown at the November meeting


Have fun and happy shooting.


Subjects:  Spokes on a bike;   Sprinkler;   Rain;  Stairs;  A Warm Breeze;  Umbrellas;  At the Beach;  Headphones;  Enjoying Ice Cream; Yourself (but not an arm’s length selfie)
