Member Gallery Exhibit

The following is from new member Lynda Tygart

Opening: Friday January 18, 2019 6-9PM

SYNC Gallery
931 Santa Fe Dr. #100
Denver, CO

When I moved to Denver a few years ago, I was inspired to photograph my new neighborhood in Berkeley. Tennyson Street was so charming with its little cottage homes, galleries and barbershop. Just a few years later, I would be looking at those photos with fond memories. Almost overnight, those cottages were replaced with new slot homes and apartments. Suddenly, my photographs from 2012 are now Nostalgic!

After witnessing what happened on Tennyson Street, I decided to start photographing other sites in Denver as the city continues to change in many ways. Each original is printed and hand colored, creating an aged appearance. The viewers will feel they are looking at old postcards from days gone by, even though many of these pictures were taken just a few months ago.

Lunar Eclipse Photo Op

by Tom Goldberg

Evergreen Camera Club members will be treated to a full lunar eclipse this January 20th. It’s the first full moon of 2019, and the first lunar eclipse of 2019 (and this is an eclipse-heavy year, with five eclipses, including two lunar eclipses in 2019). Plus, it’s the year’s first supermoon, meaning the moon is nearly at its closest to Earth for this month, as the eclipse takes place. Sadly, this will be the last total lunar eclipse to grace Earth’s sky until May 26, 2021.

The heads-up and details provided by new member Owen Newman:
Moonrise 4:45 pm 1/20 Azimuth (compass bearing) 63.2 degrees
Sunset 5:05 pm
Eclipse peaks at 10:13 pm
