Field Trips

Every Opportunity

Liddy and I were down to Van Lierop Park this morning – practicing the art of rolling out of bed early – for our morning walk.

We weren’t there for anything really special, just a chance to get out and enjoy the morning air and to check what the park looks like for our field trip tomorrow morning. We wanted to make sure that any of our members who want some coaching on how to use their cameras would have some good subjects.

So, I put on my 100-400 lens knowing there were lots of small birds about and here are a few of my captures.

Didn’t capture any prize-winning shots, but that wasn’t the point. The point was to see if the Lupines and other wildflowers would be available for you to capture a prize-winning shot. Look forward to sharing tomorrow’s morning walk with you.

Olympic Kennel Club Dog Show Wrap Up

Alrighty then!

It is Monday, August 19th. I have just survived a very full week because of my damn dog! I’m putting the blame on Liddy because she is the reason we became associated with the Olympic Kennel Club.

This is a very good thing to load onto her 😍. Through the OKC we learned about PawsAbilities and who helped us form the team we are today. The benefits to June and I have been huge so it gives us great pleasure that we can support OKC in this way.

Old Olympia Brewery Photo Safari

Saturday, May 4, eight TPS members gathered at the Old Olympia Brewery in Tumwater for a photo experience at the historic brick buildings. Because of the deteriorating state of the buildings, we were only able to enter one of the large brick warehouse buildings, but what a treasure of photo opportunities that revealed!

The property owners were welcoming and helpful as we spent a couple of hours at the site. Everyone agreed they would definitely like to return.
