VIRTUAL: High Wheel Bike Race

Online event

The actual race has been cancelled due to ongoing concerns for the health of participants and spectators. We will hold a virtual photo event that's NOT a race! Upload to this events photo album up to three images of people riding bicycles. Let us know as much or as little about the picture as you want. Constructive, POSITIVE comments by everyone are welcome!! Bicycle, bicycle, bicycle I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride my bike I want to ride my bicycle I want to ride it where I like -- Freddie Mercury ------------------------------------------------- Not an ordinary bike race but a high wheel bicycle race of what were know as penny farthing bikes. See what your great great great grandparents might have seen back in the ol’ timey days of 1880 Great Britain. Today the only American high wheel race of its kind takes place on the historic streets of Frederick MD. We will photograph the racers as they navigate a .4 mile street loop. This is a very crowded event so we may not be able to gather as a group. Find a spot along the loop that makes you happy and photograph the fun. Post your best pictures to the Meetup album after the event. Race information: https://www.highwheelrace.com/

Movie Discussion - Elliott Erwitt – Silence Sounds Good

This is an ONLINE EVENT!! We will meet using Zoom. A link will be sent to all that RSVP yes. You will watch a movie with photography as a prominent theme. We will meet online and have a discussion about the main photographic topics. This will work like a book club: WATCH THE MOVIE FIRST!! The movie will be about Magnum photographer Elliott Erwitt. The movie will be available to stream from the International Center of Photography from July 3 through July 31. Price is $10 paid to ICP. Purchase here: https://www.icp.org/events/film-screening-elliott-erwitt-silence-sounds-good-and-jr-one-thousand-stories Movie synopsis: Elliott Erwitt: Silence Sounds Good (62 mins) follows legendary Magnum photographer (Recent Developments; Dogs Dogs; Personal Best) as he travels back to Cuba for the first time since his iconic Newsweek photos of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara for a new book and exhibition. Narrated by his photo assistant, the film dives into Erwitt’s extensive photo archives of presidents, popes and everyday people while showcasing Erwitt’s signature wry observations, often likened to “Chaplin movies.” As Elliott enters his ninth decade, his deadpan sense of humor and irrepressible spirit are still sharply in focus. Directed by Adriana Lopez Sanfeliu. Written by Mark Monroe (The Cove; Icarus) More information: https://www.magnumphotos.com/arts-culture/society-arts-culture/inside-the-world-of-elliott-erwitt/ https://www.adrianalopezsanfeliu.com/silence-sounds-good Space is limited for the discussion so everyone can contribute.
