Photo of the Month – November 2017

Congratulations to Dennis Landis for winning the November 2017 Contest.

This photo of my grandson was taken on November 11, 2017 at COSI (Children’s Science Museum in Columbus,OH). It illustrates the dictum that the “real” camera that you have with you is better than the one in the hotel room. With a two year old, a 6 month old who wasn’t sure about being with grandparents, assorted baggage, stroller, pacifier, coats and several hours to pass, it seemed best to keep one’s hands free.

Camera used: iPhone. Settings: point and shoot.

Photo of the Month – September 2017

Congratulations to Kay Rhodes for winning the September 2017 Contest.

This photo was taken on July 25, 2017 inside the Journeyman Distillery, which is an Organic Spirits Distillery, located in the EK Warren Historic Featherbone Factory, in Three Oaks, Michigan. Warren, a staunch prohibitionist, founded the historic factory building in 1883, manufacturing buggy whips and corsets. He revolutionized the manufacturing of corsets with the use of the softer featherbone, over the stiffer whalebone for corsets in the late 19th century. EK Warren’s success reached worldwide attention putting Three Oaks, Michigan on the map.

Camera Settings:  Photo taken with Canon EOS 5D Mark III camera, EF24-105mm lens, f/7.1, 1/60 sec, ISO 1600, handheld. Focal length 24mm
