Getting old is a lot of fun. A lot of fun if you are physically active. A lot of fun if you are mentally active. These two attributes work in tandem to keep one young. Yossarian would be proud of that!
This week is NSW Seniors' Week and I have been celebrating/participating for two weeks already. Where are the rest of you?
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) down at Circular Quay, and the Australian Centre for Photography (ACP) up here in Paddington, have been running three parallel photography workshops for seniors over three weeks, four hours each workshop. This week is the final workshop, where they walk us through Photoshop. Friday coming is our exhibition at the MCA. We are encouraged to submit 5 shots. I have shown you some of mine over the last few days.
The top shot today is panning with a slow shutter speed, and narrow aperture. My stats were: F18, 1/15, ISO100, 55mm. The jogging figure should have been frozen ... but hey ...
Tom is our tutor from the ACP, and Jill is one of the other participants. Each workshop has 10 seniors, so 30 of us all told.
