Rick wins a Lenspen Kit!!!

I would announce more winners, but we need more participation at First Monday Events.

Make sure you are following us on Facebook.

Rick gave me some feedback regarding the decision to leave MeetUp.  He said that Facebook announcements don’t send reminders.  Well, I may have a solution for that.  Since MeetUp wasn’t meeting the needs either, I will work on creating a solution that will remind people about the events, and allow you to add them to your smart phone and computer calendars.

Rick and I wandered around the park and Lock 29 taking pictures.  It was a nice sunny morning.  Saw some birds.  Took pictures of Lock 29, the Erie Canal, the old Aqueduct Bridge and more.

Consider joining us.

Coming Next Month…

Our theme next month will be Fungus and Flora.  I realize next month’s falls on Labor Day.  But, we’ll be done early before the picnics and parties start.

I hope you join us.

What is the First Monday Event?

The First Monday Event is a social event for photographers (or those interested in photography) to gather and take pictures together.  We have a few sponsors that contribute door prizes.  Here’s a list of those sponsors (in alphabetical order):

B&H Photo and Video
Bay Photo Labs
Macedon Family Chiropractic

Our attendees range from people with point-n-shoot cameras to full-time professionals (like db walton).    Attendees have taken some amazing photos.  And, our organizer (db walton) is always open to recommendations for future First Mondays.

Unless otherwise noted, we meet at 9am on the First Monday of the month, at the Beckwith Estate, 213 W Main Street, Palmyra, NY, 14522.

Cost?  Free (unless we go somewhere that has an admission charge.  In those cases, we will announce the cost when we announce the event.)
