Field Trips Are now DIY - Common Location with no fixed time

The February DIY Field Trip will be to the Dallas Zoo.

 

For this month’s DIY Field Trip, we will be taking a trip to Africa via the Dallas Zoo. In this way, you will be able to spend a day or so only minutes from home, be able to take pictures of wild animals and still be following COVID-19 guidelines.

Dates:  February 1 – February 14th

Location: Dallas Zoo – 650 South RL Thornton Freeway (I-35E), Dallas.               www.dallaszoo.com

Note: Due to construction, you will exit from southbound I-35 much earlier. The Ewing Ave. / Marsalis Ave. exit ramp will now be located just past the Colorado Blvd. exit. You will still see the brown Dallas Zoo destination marker on the exit signage. Check the Zoo’s web site www.dallaszoo.com for up-to-date information on construction changes.          

Time:  Winter hours for the Zoo are 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. However, you will need to choose the time you want to arrive when you buy your admission ticket.

Admission: Tickets to the Zoo must be purchased online in advance. During the month of February, the Zoo has a discount admission of $8.00 per person general admission, plus $10.00 per car parking. Buy Tickets | Dallas Zoo. Zoo members are free and have free parking.

After your trip to the Zoo send me Hal@SABooks.net up to 10 images for the DYI Field Trip at the Dallas Zoo video. Make sure that you put DCC Zoo in the subject line, identify yourself and send the pictures as an attachments to the email. Images should be received by the end of February.

Enjoy getting outdoors and your trip to the Zoo, bur remember to stay safe and keep healthy.

This month’s field trip will be a scavenger hunt as well as an opportunity to share one or two of your images with the Dallas Heritage Village. Photography is welcome at Heritage Village but no use of flash in the buildings.

Dates:  March 1 – March 14th
Location: Dallas Heritage Village 1515 South Harwood, Dallas.                                                                   www.DallasHeritageVillage.org

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

DCC Lock Down Challenge 38

BRRR

I suspect that many of you took advantage of this past, terrible week to make photos of the ice, snow and impact of the record cold. Some beautiful, some horrifying. Time to do a little culling and editing and share them with us for this challenge. If you did not venture out of the house before all traces are gone, dig back into your archives. I feel certain you can find something to share.

Forgot the administrative details – so here you go.

Note on filename >>>>> Please add your name to the beginning of the filename. Email five or six images, using standard (1920 X 1280 px) jpeg competition format, by the end of the day on Saturday, February 28th to f-richards@sbcglobal.net. You are encouraged to put your name on your photos.

Looking forward to seeing frozen delights. Stay warm, stay safe, Frank
