Chairman's letter


Dear Members,


It’s already February in 2017 and I only now could find a moment to sit down and 
write a note for our website. Within a wink of an eye the first month has gone by 
without any accidents, incidents, dents, no cake, no holidays and no outstanding photos.      
Phew! 31 Hectic days, gone.

I am sure if I pick my camera up today, the battery will be flat. 
My camera must find my company very boring these days. 
But how, how can I make more time for my favourite hobby?     
                                                                                                           
Time has become such a scarce commodity these days and unfortunately hobbies 
and other non income generating activities must take the backseat when 
survival competes with the joy in your life. 
But like my camera, joy MUST survive, and taking photos is my joy!

Sometimes one focuses on the big things and moments in live to capture, 
but see what Ansel Adams had to say about this:                 
“The whole world is, to me, very much ‘alive’ – all the little growing things, even the rocks. 
I can’t look at a swell bit of grass and earth, for instance, without feeling the essential life – 
the things going on – within them.
The same goes for a mountain, or a bit of the ocean or a magnificent old piece of wood.

2017 is still a blank space, to me, waiting to bring that much needed joy into my every day. 

A blank page waiting to be coloured in with captured moments what will 
make time stand still!  
Let’s push the boundaries this year, let’s go bigger, bolder and “badder”! 
Higher, lower and stranger. 
Let’s make the rules, break the rules, and rule the rules!                   
Let’s climb into the box and capture life outside the box!

Welcome to the Nelspruit Photographic Society in 2017!                   

May you live this year through your lens, see life through your lens   
and love that life through your lens. 
Ansel Adams was a very wise man and left us with a lot of wise quotes.   
                                  
My favourite Ansel quote is

“You don’t make a photograph with just a camera.    
You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have ever seen, 
the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
So, I better save my camera from a premature death.   
                    
I’m looking forward to spending precious moments with our club members this year.  
We will have our annual Photo Rally, a trip to Botswana and much more.   
We will keep you informed on what is going on in our area, so that you can capture life.

Regards,


Tom
