A Grave Situation

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.
