Children's Museum of Oak Ridge

Oak Ridge Camera Club Salon Exhibit
Closes Nov. 7


Camera Club ExhibitionThe 61st Annual Camera Club Salon of Oak Ridge, TN has some beautiful photographs in the exhibition. There is, also, a digital slideshow. I'm more of a paper person because while digital pieces maybe have skill, something is lost in the digital version. There are some beautiful pieces in the digital segment; but I enjoy looking at a photo at my own pace.

The Landscape group was strong as was the people and architecture categories. I enjoyed Mike Slay's "Life was a Highway: and Peggy Turner's "Sitting Pretty" and Gretchen Kaplan's "A Serene Place" very much.

The Plants category had really outstanding technical pieces such as Rebecca Fairbank's "Fallen Leaf" and "Startazer". Peggy Turner's "The Eyes Have It" is the most unusual cat photo I have seen.

Go see the show you will enjoy it,

Sherrie.
