The Rock Ranch Photo Shoot

Fourteen Shutterbugs enjoyed the April 8th for-members-only photo shoot held at The Rock Ranch from 6-8 p.m. Adam Pugh, who is Event Coordinator, Public Relations Specialist and Director of Detail at the ranch, hosted the event. For the first 30-45 minutes we were on our own and quickly set about taking pictures of peacocks, a new foal, expectant goats, fat sheep, horses, pigs, barns, and all sorts of buildings and unique things, like a giant windmill, a covered bridge, the rusty truck that has a tree growing in the engine, and much, much more. Then we formed a caravan, led by Adam, and bumped along roads and pastures in order to photograph cattle and Conestoga wagons, as well as a beautiful sunset. A good time was had by all, and we managed to capture some great images to add to our collections/galleries. We are very grateful to The Rock Ranch for hosting us in such a gracious way and allowing us to enjoy their “photographer’s delights.”

Our next meeting will be May 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the Thomaston-Upson Arts Council (TUAC) Gallery, located on the courthouse square in Thomaston. The program will be presented by various Shutterbugs and will focus on how to upload and file photos, as well as how to join and set up a free gallery there. Anyone interested in photography is invited to attend.
