St Kilda outing – June 2019

by on May.25, 2019, under Outings

This month’s outing for will be held on the afternoon of Sunday 16th June 2019 in St Kilda.

This outing will be a walk that includes a number of sites in the local area. As St Kilda market will be open on the day, and hopefully a sunset at the end of the day around 5pm, there will be many and varied opportunities for our intrepid WCC photographers to demonstrate their skills!

This outing gives you opportunities to extend your outing experience by visiting the market beforehand, staying for the sunset shoot or planning your own leisurely meals at either end of the outing.

There will be no cost for this outing unless you choose to travel by public transport, dine, purchase goods at the market or opt for paid parking.

Please let Helen know if you are interested in carpooling. Carpooling is now quite popular, so if interested or you are happy to offer your car, please let Helen know when you register. Please register at outings@waverleycameraclub.org by 5pm Friday 14th June 2019. Further details provided once you have registered.

Hope to see you there!

Autumnal colours did not disappoint

by on May.22, 2019, under Outings

14 participants attended the outing to the Alfred Nicholas Gardens on the morning of 19th May. It was lovely to welcome a new member and guests who joined us on the day!

The autumnal colours did not disappoint and the weather was perfect for rambling through the vast hillside gardens. Whist agreeable, the perfect weather brought with it a challenging light environment in the shaded forest areas which kept us all on our toes!

After a hour or so, we wended out way back up the hill before wending our way to Olinda to enjoy lunch together in the Olinda Café. Thanks to all for such a great day!

Portraits and laneways in Melbourne

by on Apr.07, 2019, under Outings

The weather for our outing last Sunday was ideal, overcast with no sun or harsh shadows.

After a train trip into the city by most, we met under the clock at Melbourne Central and viewed the Iconic Women Exhibition, including images of Olivier Newton-John, Audrey Hepburn and Nicole Kidman, to name just a few. It gave us some inspiration in portrait/creative photography as most images had some sort of graphic added to them.

We stuck together, heading towards Fed Square via laneways and alleys, including Tattersalls Lane, Croft Alley, Duckboard/ACDC and Hosier Lane. Luckily we were able to experience the opening ceremony of a new restaurant in Tattersalls Lane; the cameras were clicking!

Ross Eddington -Restaurant Opening

A coffee break on the way was also a must!

We were looking forward to sampling some French cuisine but the Fed in French Festival was cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Saturday had brought rain and hail on and off during the day. Never the less, there seemed to be a lot of images captured during our walk from Melbourne Central.

It was 12 noon so we enjoyed lunch together at the Rooftop Bar of Taxi; overlooking the Yarra and Southbank. The Outing was enjoyed by all.

Photos from this outing can be found in the outing gallery.
