This is an indoor shoot at an Antique Bazaar where we have permission to photograph items that are up for sale. The bazaar is in a HUGE warehouse full of items ranging from furniture, clothing, knickknacks, costumes, 60’s stuff and more. This is a great place to collect images for creative, composite work or for a still life composition.

Meet at the front of the venue at 10am.
11A Aristoc Rd, Glen Waverley. Next door to the badminton centre.
We have decided to proceed with an outing on Saturday Morning at Bunjil Place, in Narre Warren (Cnr Magid Drive & Princess Hwy). This is a great modern building with many photogenic aspects and architectural details, inside and out.

I have been monitoring the Bureau of Meteorology website closely over the past few days. Tomorrow’s forecast foreshadows possibly severe thunderstorms with heavy rainfall, gusty winds and possible large hail later in the day.
Not specifying how later is later, the decision has been made to cancel the City Walk Outing tomorrow evening.
This is a great disappointment, so to make the best of it we plan to repeat this outing at a time later in the year when the sun sets earlier. Then we can perhaps enjoys capturing some light trails as well!
Given the challenges of unpredictable weather and fire hazards this year, our first Outing for 2020 is a Melbourne city night walk. We intend to capture Melbourne in a different light and from a different perspective.
This outing will afford opportunities for night and street photography. You will need your camera, lenses, tripod, charged batteries and a raincoat if wet!
We will meet at 7:30pm on Saturday 1st February, 2020 at Flinders Street station. We intend to catch the train from Mt. Waverley station. Others may drive and park in Federation square carpark.

Our final outing for the year was a grand success. The weather was perfect which drew 18 people out to visit and photograph the beautiful sites along the coast near Sorrento and Portsea.
Carpooling has ended up being a wonderful way to get to know and have a good chat with other members of our club. Once we arrive we tend to scarper off in groups and share photography chat, settings, equipment etc. until break times where we get back together again and chat about many and varied things.
Colleen, a recent WCC member said, “Sometimes when in a photo club it’s as important to click with the people, than to just click the shutter on your camera, one learns so much more.”
Our first stop was to photograph the dual bays of Bay of Islands and Diamond Bay. The scenery is magnificent and most members were unaware of this site previously. We then moved on to the more well-known London Bridge before ending out year with a convivial lunch at the Portsea Hotel overlooking over the beautiful blue water of Port Phillip Bay.
If you haven’t yet been on an outing in 2019, make a New Year’s resolution to come along and join the fun and take some photographs as well!
More photos from participating members can be found in the outing gallery.
