Welcome back to another year at Crescent Beach Photo Club.  This year will be somewhat different, but we are fortunate that the hobby that we have chosen is one that we can pursue while still following health guidelines.  I will be looking after the themes this year and we will follow a similar format as we had last year.

First the rules:  

Image submission details:

Image Sizing: 

Landscape oriented image    1400 pixels on the long side

Portrait oriented image          1050 pixels on the long side

Naming convention – YourName-PhotoTitle.jpeg

The following three submission options are open to you:

1. Three new images (taken this month) 


2. Two new images, (taken this month) plus one image from your archives.


3. One or two images (taken this month).

The submission option that requires that images be taken in the month of the theme is a must.  It is easy to dig up old pics from your archives but that is not the purpose of the monthly themes.  They are meant to encourage everyone to get out with their camera on a regular basis.  In order to be fair, everyone must follow the rules. 

Send your photos to Lynne Kelman for the Summer Themes Below

The themes for the Summer are:

To: Crescent Beach Photo Club Members:

From: Lynne Kelman

Hello Members—Since I still cannot hold outings for our photo club, as per Dr. Bonnie Henry—and as Mike Strong would like a short break from Themes  for the summer months, I have volunteered to keep themes  going over the summer months only—until Mike resumes in September—

So, I am giving you all the titles for the the next three summer themes and will proceed with themes exactly as Mike had been doing—the only exception is that you send them, sized and titled to me at this email address—-any images unsized or not titled , I will return and ask you to repair—-

May—- (to be shown in June)       Covid Impressions—-

June—-  (to be shown in July)       Yellow

July —- (to be shown in August—Gardens and/or Blooms

The August theme will be decided by Mike Strong and will go to him to be shown in September as the first theme of the new club year:

Have fun with themes this summer—-remember that 1 image can be from your archives but the other two should be taken the month of the theme—–

*******Don’t forget to send your ACTION theme submissions to Mike in the next few days—-
