Photo Section in the 2nd half of 2020

COVID-19 infections are on the rise again in San Diego County. While the Sierra Club currently only mandates to put all personal meetings on hold until the end of August, our photo club will NOT meet in person and continue to hold all club meetings online instead, at least until the end of the year 2020. While treatment of this disease has improved, the general situation has not changed: there is no general immunity, there is no vaccine.

For this month’s photo quest though, we want you to go back into your archives as far as possible. We’re calling it…

Archive Dive!

Photo Quest May 2020: Seeing The Light

Photography, the word itself meaning “light drawing”, is all about the light of course. For our May 2020 photo quest, we’re looking for photos where you can “see the light” as it manifests itself as more than just a source of illumination for your photographic subjects. We want the light to be the subject.
