Viewfinders Annual Photo of the Year
February's Monthly Winners "Anything Goes"

February was the Siuslaw Viewfinders Club twelfth annual banquet! Along with the usual festivities, wonderful food at the Elks Club and the installation of new officers, we had two contests. February Monthly Contest 2016 and the annual Photo of the year contest.

All and all, we had some of the best photographs ever seen at this event. Next month's meeting will be Monday, March seventh, at 6 o'clock in the Bromley room of the library. The theme is “Bokeh” which is a fancy way photographers talk about blurred backgrounds. - Rick Marsh

NOTE: It is wonderful to learn that this organization of photogrpahers has been going for 12 years, all the while suppporting beginners through professionally advanced photogpraphers while promoting photography in the greater Florence and Eugene areas. Congratulations to the Siuslaw Viewfinders Club! - susan canavarro
