But today I want to share an adventure with other photographers I have embarked on.
I am a member of the Flushing Area Senior Center in Flushing Michigan. Flushing is a comfortable little Midwest community located in the lower peninsula of Michigan. It's the town where my daughter (and my late wife) went to school and graduated from. It's home. For many years Flushing had its own local photographer and recorder of life events.
Gary Nickel attended many local events and functions around town with his camera in tow. He recorded life here and was quick to share those images with the community. He was well known and well loved around the area. And I was very honored to have met him on several occasions. Gary was also a member of the Flushing Area Senior Center and served as a Board Member there. Last year the community lost Gary to Covid-19.
In honor of Gary Nickel and the impact he had on Flushing community a group has been started at the senior center. Members of the senior center who are interested in learning more about their own cameras and meeting with others who enjoy photography can join us once a month to explore this subject. I am leading the monthly meet-ups. We will be discussing all types of cameras, including cell phones, point and shoots, DSLR, and the newer action cameras like GoPro's and Insta360's. We are looking at the possibility of "field trips" to local parks to take pictures. We will also be looking into other gear you can carry with you and photo editing software to complete your image. It's a good chance to meet and learn from others.
We all have something to learn and something to share.
