  • That old saying that you can’t see the forest for the trees isn’t always true. I had an opportunity recently to see the trees, the forest and now the properly thinned forest first-hand right up the canyon from our ranch headquarters.

    Photographers naturally flock together. Members of the Meadow City Camera Club in Las Vegas get together and shoot favorite scenes, then talk about the best way to process and print the results.

    They exchange ideas and inspire one another. Although most photograph digitally, now members produce innovative work in film, using old cameras or even rejuvenated Polaroids.
