The Emily Guthrie Smith Award is an annual contest between the Dallas Camera Club and the Fort Worth Camera Club since 1964. This year each club presents 15 digital images. The subject is Open. Images will be scored in real time by three judges via Zoom. The club with the highest total score takes home the trophy. The actual judging will be done later this month with observers from each club since there is concern things will not go smoothly since we have never done this before. The results will be shown as part of Fort Worth's meeting on October 1 at 7:30. Links will be provided later.

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

DCC LOCK DOWN CHALLENGE #22
19 Sept. to 26 Sept.

THE COLOR PURPLE

Purple is royal. It is elaborate, replete with the trappings of majesty and ceremony. It is half-blue, half-red, and our understanding of purple lies somewhere in between the serenity of blue and the passion of red. Purple is cheerful–whimsical and playful. It is associated with an escape from reality and magical images. Purple is often a statement of independence as it is not a basic, primary color, and it is often a sign of fusing the mundane with the innovative. If green is the color of spring, then purple conjures up autumn, fading light, and shorter days.

Please send me (lpetterborg@gmail.com) five (5) photos (1920 x 1280 pixels) where purple predominates the frame by midnight on the 26th.
