September Photo Quadrant Challenge

Needs a location

To commemorate the launch of the SpaceX Inspiration4 launch on September 15, 2021, we'll create an image with four photos, each representing the "pillar" that each person on the four-person crew represented, supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital: leadership, hope, generosity, and prosperity.


  • 4 photos
  • Put photos into a "photo quadrant" format

PREPARATION BEFORE EVENT STARTS: If you want, you can prepare by deciding how you will create a photo-quadrant image (4 photos in a square). You can use Photoshop, a phone app (such as Pic Stitch), etc.
CHALLENGE: Take four photos that fall into each of these categories/themes and put them into a "photo quadrant" format:

  • Leadership
  • Hope
  • Generosity
  • Prosperity

*NOTE: To go ALL OUT with this challenge, have some sort of common element in all photos to tie them together, such as a color, a shape, or anything else that makes them look in harmony together.

END RESULT: When you are finished with the challenge, you will post your "photo quadrant" under this Meetup event by Sunday, September 18th.

September Photo Hike - Balconies District Park

Needs a location

*This event was originally planned for May 28th, but since we haven't had any rain, there is no water for the creek or waterfall, so moving date to September 24th in hopes we get water by then.

PHOTO HIKE from 9:00 to probably about 10:30

LOCATION: Walnut Creek Trail at Balconies District Park

ADDRESS: 12017 Amherst Dr., Austin, TX 78759


PREPARATION: Good hiking shoes. It's about a 1.3-mile loop and is a little steep (not bad) at beginning with some loose dirt/rocks to get down to the creek. After that, it's a nice easy trail along a creek...and there's a waterfall too!

TRAIL: We'll take the trail toward the south (toward Duval Road) and then we can either turn back around or take the concrete path to return to the parking lot. (FYI...Photo posted in header for this event is not from this trail.)

You can call Cat at[masked] if you need assistance finding it or are running late.

END RESULT: Post your favorite photos under this Meetup event.
