Bob’s COVID challenge

Seeing so little of family during the crisis is difficult.  Sometimes the social distancing rules were broken.

It was a good time to volunteer at the food bank as many families are struggling financially.

I spent alot of time camping over the year, social distancing and reflecting on many things.  Our ironing board / camping table represents social distancing as well as personal allignment with the surrounding landscape.

PSA entries for March 2021

There were only 6 entries submitted to the PSA #3 competition due March 15.  Therefore all 6 photographs have beens submitted to PSA for the club competition.  We have posted the 6 entries on the website along with the previous 6 entries for PSA #2.  here’s the link to the website.   http://thundermountaincameraclub.org

Remember the April Challenge, photographs depicting your experience or thoughts or emotions during the COVID19 health crisis.  This is not a competition.   Photos may be posted with on the TMCC website “join the discussion” tab or on the club Facebook page.    Thanks for playing and sharing.

April Challenge – COVID19

Since March 2020 we have all been living in a public health crisis / pandemic.  Hopefully the end of the crisis is in sight.  The TMCC Board is requesting members share up to 3 photos from your life the last 12 months.   Please post the photos either on the TMCC website or the group Facebook page.  This is not a competition but rather an opportunity to share your experience through photography.

WEBSITE INSTRUCTIONS:  Login to the TMCC website.  Use the “join the discussion” tab, then the “+new” / post links at top of page; title your post;  “add media” (to upload photos) and then explain your photos in the text box as you wish.  Click “Publish” (on the right side) when you are ready to finish.  Logout.

Please upload photos with less than 1 MB with 1400 pixels maximum side.

Alternatively, you could post 3 photos on the Facebook TMCC group page.

naked dog – deadline extension

Really, I have to scavenge to get fed,  John ??

OK, we are surrounded by Chaos, because of this it just makes sense to extend the Scavenger Hunt deadline until Tuesday Sept 15th.  From 6:00 till about 7:00 PM on that day I will be sitting at Main Street Bagel in GJ at 6th & Main. I will be under one of their colorful umbrellas, just waiting for you to bring your great pictures. Please remember you only need to submit pictures for your favorite categories,

thanks for your participation,            John Truzinski .

Scavenger Hunt Plans

TMCC Members,

You were given the Scavenger Hunt List last fall.  Boy, has everything changed since then, no parties, no eating out, no meetings, and barely any peaches. Let me calm your fears, “Yes”the Scavenger Hunt is still on. I know you have been sneaking out to take pictures in town and out in the country, day & night.

It’s time to put all your great shots together and print your images on either 4×6 or 5×7 inch photo paper. Please have your name and category entered on the back of each of your entries.

At our regularly scheduled meeting time, August 25th, Bob Peterson and myself, John Truzinski, will be hanging around outside of Building B, east entrance, at Western Colorado Community College, to accept your amazing photographs.  Arrive any time between 7:00 and 8:00 PM on Tuesday August 25th.  We will be lazily sitting in the grass near the entrance door we would normally use to enter the building for our TMCC meeting collecting photo entries.  All social distancing guidelines will be followed while collecting your super entries. You can stop and say hello or just holler at us and hand them out your window!

We are envisioning the voting to take place a month later, at the same place and time (Sept 22ndbetween 7:00 and 8:00) at which time you can vote for your favorites in each category.  I say “envision” because things may change again before then.

Thanking you ahead of time for your participation,

John Truzinski.
