HPS Outing from Halloween
Thanks to HPS Activities Coordinator Nathalie Brouard’s time and effort to create and present this video on a recent outing (day before Halloween 2011) for your enjoyment. It features some interesting photos captured by participants including:
- Nathalie Brouard,
- John Kleb,
- Lexi Nemeth,
- Laszlo Perlaky,
- and Dwight Theal.
The group met at Houston’s famous Glenwood Cemetery before sunrise and then they spread out for a photo-shoot that concluded around a table for brunch at Benjy’s Restaurant.
Nathalie quipped, “I found it quite fascinating to see the very diverse point of view of the photographers. Lazlo captured the magic of the sunrise light, Lexi focused was on accent of light and colors, John looked straight up to the sky, my attention was on little items and details, while Dwight highlighted the contrast between the Cemetery and the city in the background.”
HPS members and guests are invited to join us for future photographic outings. While the locations pose interesting photographic subjects, the camaraderie is the greatest draw.
Saturday, October 29, 2011 beginning 7 a.m.
Join HPS members as we go on an outing to the Glenwood Cemetery to photograph the beautiful cemetery in time for the Halloween weekend. If you’ve not been, it’s perhaps the most beautiful cemeteries in the greater Houston area.
The Glenwood Cemetery is located just west of downtown Houston at 2525 Washington Ave. between Studemont and Sawyer. We will park and meet in the first section of the cemetery where the most historical and artistic opportunities exist (just inside the main entrance).
On Saturday, September 24, a few members traveled and met up at the Galveston Railroad Museum located at The Strand. They spent the morning photographing in and out of the rail cars and engines, the interior of the museum, and then finished up in time for lunch at the Star Drug Store, the oldest drug store in Texas.
The video below chronicles the field trip.
Who: HPS members and guests
What: HPS field trip
When: Saturday, September 24, 2011
— meet at 10 a.m. in the hallway entrance of the museum.
Why: The museum suffered significant damage to Hurricane Ike, but this sad event makes some great opportunity for us photographers: peeling paint, rust — all those lovely textures. Keep in mind — this is the subject of November’s special assignment. The site offers plenty of other photography interest too. And, for those who missed the back-street outing, we can go for another stroll in the backstreets afterwards.
Admission: Adults – $6; Seniors – $5
