Now the photo club has a new name, we now have a new website too! Sorry to everyone who is subscribed to the old site but now you need to head on over and subscribe to the RSS feed at the new site. Just go to ThefStopinME.wordpress.com for the premier amateur and semi-pro photo club in Southern Maine.
For everyone that got to make it out yesterday for the May Day Festival, there were a lot of unbelievable photo opportunities and we tried to get them all. I posted mine on my Flickr account already. You can get to those and check out our other members photos by hitting the members tab at the top. I know Jess has already posted some of her photos too and they are amazing! If you have a flickr account and want to check out or join the online group, we just started our page. Just look for The f-Stops Here – Southern Maine and feel free to become part of our online community!
Our next get together will be next Saturday, May 14, in South Portland at the Bug Light Kite Festival so mark your calendar and charge your camera batteries. New members or people who just want to come for the day are always welcome.
Current members: Your task for this week is to keep your eyes out for more events or places to go to and write down your ideas for a workshop!
Now we have a name, we now have a Facebook page too! I want to thank Jessica for taking the time out of her week to create it and anyone reading this should go over and join the group to get all your updates and events you might want to show up for. Unfortunately I do not have enough time this week to really put to many posts out there, so I just want to remind everyone that this Saturday we are meeting up in Kennebunk (time and place to be announced) to take some pictures of the May Day Festival. Even if you’re not part of the group but just want someone to run around with then come meet up with us!
And a shameless plug with something that has nothing to do with The f-Stops Here…
The Telling Room, one of the greatest non-profit writing programs for kids in the Portland area, is having their annual celebration and releasing their fifth anthology. It will be a good time of readings, plays, and photography. Come down and check it out at the Portland Public Library at 7 on Thursday and during the Art Walk on Friday. Look for me if you want to inquire about the photo club, any of the organizers should be able to know how to find me. If you do miss the celebration but want to pick up a copy of the Anthology then it will be sold right across the street for the library at Longfellow Books.

Its official, our photo club has a name! By a unanimous vote, “The f-Stops Here” was picked to be the name for the greatest photo club in Southern Maine. Not only was a name voted on but we had three new people show up, planned a few events, and had a fun time taking our cameras out on a gorgeous day.
If you want to come join in on the fun, next Saturday, May 7th, bring your camera down and meet up with us at the Kennebunk May Day Festival for an informal get-together where you can meet some great people to walk around with and take some pictures. If you can’t make that then come to our next meeting which will be in South Portland at the Bug Light Kite Festival.
Some more planned adventures we hope to go on this summer is taking our cameras up to a Civil War reenactment in Livermore and possibly get up to Owls Head to see some antique airplanes. If you have any ideas or have an event you want might want memorialized, let us know. We love any chance to get together with our cameras!
