It took me more than a year after retiring to enroll in some of the classes and groups at the Manchester Senior Center. I am grateful to have discovered the varied and appealing offerings and began taking classes in January of this year.
On Monday mornings I spend my time with the Digital Photography Group. We have been watching a series of videos by National Geographic Photographer Joel Sartore, sharing and discussing pictures we have taken on our own, and creating a bulletin board for some of our favorite photos.
I’ve met some really nice people in this group with an interest in photography and a willingness to share tips and pointers. March 9 was our last session together before everything was cancelled. It was a beautiful, sunny, late winter day and we took a field trip to the greenhouse at Elizabeth Park in Hartford.
Here are some more of my photos from that trip:
I am looking forward to re-joining this friendly group of senior shutterbugs when this crisis is over.
