Orchid Fair

The Orchid Society of Alberta's Annual Orchid Fair is being held this year from Feb 22 to Feb 24. I'll be attending on the Saturday and you're welcome to join me.

This is a public event with an entry fee of $10. I'll hang around the entrance to the hall (not the entrance to the building) to meet at the allotted time. However this will be an informal affair and we probably won't stick together as a group.

Please note that tripods are not allowed on the Saturday. However mono-pods are.

    Thanks Rick for suggesting and hosting this meetup. I am really angry with you, I had such a hard time choosing the photos that I wanted to post!!! There are some outstanding photos that have been posted, great job to everyone :)

    Thank you all so much for coming yesterday. These events are so much more fun in the company of others. Rather than commenting on individual photographs I'd just like to say well done to you all. I always find the conditions here (lighting, people, backgrounds) challenging and the standard of these shots is very high.

    You all took amazing photos am just drooling over them all...now I am so sad that I had not made it there...thanks for sharing ....can hardly wait for the next meet...march 10th is just so far away...have to say going in as a group with cameras to a puplic place is easier than alone...strength in numbers and like minds...think we are even a little intimidating to some tee hee...sounds like you had a great time :))

      It's an odd thing but I've always been very self conscious regarding my photography. If only I had a $ for every shot I've missed because someone (even my wife) was watching...

      They allow tripods on Sunday afternoon (still time for some of you.). Saturday was a better day for me though.

    Where abouts on the campus is this held? I know how to get there but once I am there no idea where to go ....I see we meet at the entrance so any suggestions so I don't end up lost would be so appreciated...I am most certainly learning my way around with this group LOVE IT :))

      The grant MacEwan South Campus is essentially one building. It has an open 'common' area with rooms off the side. The show will be well signposted once you are inside and it will actually be hard to get lost. Incidentally, my plan was to meet inside the building at the entrance to the hall where the show is being held.
