|Brush the dust off that old "Brownie" camera
and come out for a day of cycling and picture
taking. I'm certain there are some very
accomplished photographers in our midst. Share
your photography skills with your club members.
Let your inner artist loose as we ride through
NW Calgary looking for that perfect shot! |
From Shouldice Park we will ride west on the
Bow River Pathway through Bowmont Park. Then up
the hill to the silver Springs Botanical
Gardens. Next we will work our way towards the
University through residential streets that
offer opportunity for some floral pics. In
particular we can cruise through the back
pathways of Varsity where there are many
beautiful gardens. We can break for coffee or
lunch at the University. Afterwards we will
head east through Confederation Park, hopefully
to find some bird life there. Heading south we
can stop at Burns Gardens then head east again
along Crescent Heights for some city views.
Next it is down the hill through Princes
Island to find some urban photo ops. With the
film you have left (LOL) We will return to
Shouldice Park along the south side of the
river through Edworthy Park.
Maybe we can
share some of our photos in an upcoming issue
of Cadence? Lets talk about that.
We won't be moving very fast and will try to
progress as a group...but obviously each of us
will want to search out their own photo ops.
