Summer Evening Light at Milwaukee's Lakefront
The Coalition of Photographic Arts held its annual picnic at Cupertino Park at the Milwaukee lakefront in the Bayview area on Tuesday, August 11, 2015. There were many CoPA members there who shared great conversation on a beautiful summer evening. In addition to the schmoozing everyone enjoyed eating their favorite picnic food including grilled burgers, hot dogs, brats, and even a steak.
Some conversation was about not only what and how folks were doing, but also their cameras and their latest adventures in capturing the light. iPads and smart phones were sometimes launched to show image captures of the members work as they talked about their latest photographic adventures.
Additionally, some of the members walked down to the lakefront to capture some the golden light at sunset.
This was an evening of great fun catching up with friends and acquaintances as well as meeting new folks. I know that I had a chance to talk to some CoPA members I had not met before.
Isn’t that what happens at picnics? We get a chance to meet and connect more with those we already know as well as meet new members and share our common interest in photography as the fine art form it is and further nurture CoPA and its membership.
