Annual DCC Group Project - The DFW Area
A
ttention Dallas Camera Club Members!

It's that time of year again! Time to cull through your archives for the annual member showcase. In the past we've focused on National Parks, Travel Abroad, The United States, and most recently the state of Texas This year we're looking for photos taken in the Greater DFW area. To keep it simple, lets say that the photos need to have been captured in Tarrant, Dallas or an adjacent county.

Send your photos (competition sizing, please) to Steve@makeshiftphoto.com. If you have a lot of files you can use DropBox, Google Drive or any other transfer service to that same email address Please include your name and the location in the file name of the image. These do not need to be recent photos. In fact, if you have photos from days gone by that would be great! I'm really looking forward to not only seeing a lot of great member photos but also having a great peak back in time!

Lets try and get the photos to my before Thanksgiving and please let me know if you have any questions!
