I’m sure some of you are eager to start working on our Summer theme.
So here it is.
SUMMERTIME OUTDOOR CLOSE-UPS
Look for photo opportunities at home in your garden, and out on your summer adventures.
There is plenty of time to explore and challenge yourself on this one.
Get out there and have fun.
Have a great summer!
Here is some inspiration:

CBPC—Special Interest Groups—-SIG
Lynne Kelman will be holding the first of a special interest group for CBPC members on Monday March 11th at 7:15 pm (the second Monday in March) and proposes holding a meeting every second Monday of each month—(unless a different day works out better). The topic of these SIGs will be —current interest in photography—-bring a print(s) that you want to discuss, a topic about photography you want to discuss or share, a question about photography that can be answered by other members——-and let us see where the first few meetings lead us. (please note there will be no projector or viewing apparatus at these meetings as they are meant as general interest only).
Unfortunately due to space restrictions SIGS will be limited to a maximum of 15 people—the first 15 to email the coordinator are it—-if we find that demand is more then the coordinator will discuss an alternative (larger) meeting space and there may be a small donation at the door —-
( These first few meeting will be held at Lynne’s clubhouse in South Surrey, address will be given to first fifteen participants:)
Please see below for rules and regulations:
SIG meetings will be held in member’s homes and will not be scheduled at the same time as club meetings or activities.
Members attending a SIG meeting will be required to participate.
As seating will generally be limited, a maximum of 15 people to begin—members wishing to attend a SIG meeting must register with the SIG Coordinator in advance.
All Club members will be notified of the formation of a SIG and its meeting place and time on the club web site or by email.
A SIG will continue to exist only as long as the participants feel that it meets a need.

Sending and Receiving Email cross platform. Mac to PC and PC to Mac.
There has been a problem of sending and receiving emails that contain .jpg images. It was assumed that it was Apple’s fault but after doing a bit of testing I think it is both Apple and Microsoft that share the blame.
The problem usually arises when sending with Apple Mail from a Mac to a Windows PC and usually to the Windows 10 Mail client or Windows Live Mail 2011.
On the Mac most people just drag the image they wish to send into the window that is created when you create a new email. Choose Actual size. The image is termed “inline” or embedded right in the message. There is another option to “Attach an image” but this does not solve the problem. Using either method and sending an email to someone using Windows 10 Mail or Windows Live Mail will result in the .jpg image being resized and named with a long string of letters and numbers.
Not very useful for sending images for Themes or Competitions!!
There are a couple of solutions to the problem depending if you are the sender or receiver.
Mac to Mac is no problem. PC to Mac is no problem. The problem shows up Mac to Windows PC using Windows Live mail or Windows 10 Mail. It might also occur using Outlook on Windows but I have not tested that yet.Mac Solution:
Create your email and address it and title it as usual.
Insert your image(s) with drag and drop or attachment.
Drag an empty folder into the message just below the last image.
Or between the last image and your signature
Be sure you select “Actual size” on the right hand side just above the body of the message.
Send the message as usual.
Here is a screen shot of this method.
On a Windows PC with Live mail or Win 10 mail they will see the images as attachments with the correct names. They will also see an empty folder with the title empty.zip if your folder was titled “empty”. They can then save the images and throw away the empty.zip file.
Windows machines using Live Mail on Win 10 Mail
If you get messages from Mac users and you notice the name is not correct, all is not lost. (This is why I think it is Microsoft’s fault as well).
Depending on the email program you are using on Windows, find the setting for viewing messages as “Plain Text”. Upon selecting plain text and ok you will see the content of the mail change to plain text with the files in the attachment window at the top and the names when you right click to save them should be the originals.
Plain text also improves the security of your emails
Here is an example for Windows Live Mail and the Web site explaining more. It also works for Thunderbird and I suspect most programs have this option in various locations. https://www.emailquestions.com/threads/increase-your-email-security-by-reading-all-email-in-plain-text.2657/
