Hi Folks:

It's getting close to that time of the month again...

We can make anything from juice or herbal tea to espresso or just dark roast coffee, and I've been known to bake something when provoked (special orders considered). We'll put out a basket if anyone wants to make an anonymous donation to the coffee fund. Being a dedicated space means we don't have to fight other people for space and if the music's too loud you can ask the host to turn it down.

We live in James Bay, close to a bus stop, a 20-minute walk from the legislative building and there's on-street parking available.

We have a 32" TV with VGA and HDMI inputs so we don't have to stare at a laptop or tablet screen; it's easiest if people bring their work on a flash drive, DVD or whatever, but if you want to plug in your computer (we don't have adaptors for Macs, but you can bring one if you like) that works too!

As always, we ask people to edit their images to share down to about 10-12 so we have time to appreciate each image on its own merit.

The hours are set from 5-7, but show up when you're available and leave when you need to. We have seating for about 14 people; beyond that you're welcome to stretch out on the floor on a cushion or get cozy with someone else. If you show up, you'll be welcome!

    It was great, and I was floored by how many unique methods I saw!

    Excellent. Had a great time and was in awe of the artistry that some people put into this craft. Made me feel inadequate... :D

      Mike, you have one thing that no one else in all of history has had or will ever have - your vision. The rest is mostly learning the tools. ;-)

    Glad you liked my comments, Sandra. They are genuine. I am very impressed with this group of people...not just for their amazing talent, but for how sociable and warm and fun they are. I am so glad to have found this group.

    First of all thank you so much Mike and Marcia for opening your home and making me feel so welcomed. I was totally amazed with the pictures I saw and all the talent in one room. It made me realize how much I have to learn in order to even come close to some of those amazing shots. If anyone is open to giving me some tips and guidance it would be very welcomed.

    Sorry I can't make Wed. evening meetings. That's my choir practice night. I enjoyed the photo walk last Sat. and especially the photos that were posted. They gave me some good ideas.

    It appears I've developed a cold. Best I keep it away from your cozy living room. Another time, soon!

    October 13, 2013

    • Marcia and Mike Nelson P.

      Protocol? Egads! Nothing so formal. But yes, Marcia and I usually provide coffee, tea, juice, etc and some things to eat; people who wish to are welcome to either bring something to share and/or make an anonymous donation to the coffee fund bowl. Thanks for asking!
