The Van Wert Area Photography Club met last Thursday, March 9.
“Doors” was the competition theme in prints and slides.
Shellenbarger’s print of a door in Woodland Cemetery here in Van Wert
took top honors. Randy observed that “slides” was an antiquated term,
plus the fact that it was difficult to compare a print and a slide. He
suggested that the club confine its competition only to prints so it
would be easy to compare pictures side by side. This suggestion was met
with approval of those present with the amendment that the print could
also be accompanied by a duplicate on a jump drive for additional study
if it was requested or selected as the winner.
then bounced around on a variety of topics including where was a good
place to photograph Eagles. Mike Taylor suggested that one place was the
Salamonie Reservoir some 10 miles south of Huntington, Indiana, and
Shellenbarger said there’s a nest that can be seen back along the river
between State Road and the Ottawa River on the north side of 309 and
that another location to see Eagles is the Bresler Reservoir.
the conversation then moved to a toilet specifically made for Ohio
State Buckeye fans. From there it bounced around till someone suggested
that toilets and their surroundings (outhouses) should be the theme for
next month’s competition. What more is there to be said?
