Finding the light

The other day my sister called me to tell me that she saw an ad in our local newspaper for a camera club that's looking for new members. She thought that I might be interested & suggested I check it out.
So I went to their website & had a look. I was pretty impressed and decided to give it a try.
I soon learned that the first meeting of the year is scheduled for September 8th. The topic of discussion is "Best Shots". In May the club assigned a task for the summer. The group picked 10 categories & asked each member to submit their best shot from each of the categories for the September meeting. The photos must be current (taken between the May meeting & the September meeting).
I thought to myself "Well shoot! These people have been working on this all summer & I have 1 week to pull it off??? I'll never manage. I guess I'll just have to go and observe." but then I took a look at the categories and realized that many of my favorite photos from this summer fit the categories perfectly! I only had to come up with a few ideas. Totally doable!
I'm a little nervous about putting myself out there. I've never done this before and I'm assuming a lot of these people have quite a bit of experience (based on the photos on the website). However, I also know that I will never learn new things or make any progress if I don't try. So I'm trying. What's the worst that could happen? Absolutely nothing.
So my lovely loyal friends...here's what I came up with. Feel free to comment & let me know what you think. I'll post an update after the meeting tomorrow & let you know how it went!
