March brought one of the favorite NPC Adventure Group outings in the form of a trip to Old Car City. Old Car City is only a three hour drive from Nashville, but a world away in terms of the photographic experience. We had nine members make the adventure this year and everyone came away with lots of images, smiles, camaraderie, and a trip full of fun. Old Car City is so photographically rich with subjects it doesn't matter which way you turn you can find something to shoot. If you enjoy old cars, incredible vintage hood ornaments, rust, textures, junk, macro photography, wide angle photography, or a unique cast of characters Old Car City has it. Our group also enjoys socializing and eating at Wesman's diner across the street. All in all it's just a fun adventure.
What an exciting Adventure Group outing we had this weekend in Cave In Rock / Garden of the Gods. A big thank you to the members who attended this weekend. Thank you very much for all you did to make this weekend such a great time !! We had a little of everything to shoot for subjects including, but not limited to interesting landscapes, macro, textures, celestial night shots, fire orbs, river scenes, and a quaint small American town. If you weren't able to attend the event we missed you, if you did attend I hope you enjoyed yourself and got some images you like.
This is a bit late, but I was having "technical difficulties"!
Brent, Jeanette, and I would like to thank the hearty souls that showed up Saturday morning for the Adventure Group Pow Wow outing. The morning turned out to be a bit soggy, but the event was very colorful once they got started. We had ten members show up for the outing on September 26. Apparently, the Native Americans overdid it on the rain dance! The rain stopped long enough to hold the Grand Entrance, and the rain was spotty for the duration. Despite the weather, the group was able to get some very good shots.
Thanks to everyone who came out for tonight's Adventure Group Outing at the Downtown Presbyterian Church. We had 21 members participate in the shoot. The church is quite a unique piece of Nashville history as we learned tonight. Our guide was wonderful and really shared a lot of information and facts about the church. A few of the areas we got to shoot in were the bell tower, inside the pipe organ, the artist quarters, the balcony in the chapel, and the Italian cathedral. It's the members who make this club so much fun and thanks again for supporting the Adventure Group Outings.
It was a beautiful day with some clouds early, lots of rust, and even more poison ivy. We had a great time. Thanks to Brent and Trudy Write, and Bob and Jeanette Ellis,
