Time to get back together after much traveling! Looking forward to sharing travel adventures with everyone.

July Meeting
The July meeting will center on travel reports and pictures, as well as a review of some of the amazing features in the new releases of Photoshop and LightRoom.

There is a feature called "Content Aware Fill" in Photoshop CS5 that is absolutely amazing. For an on-line review, check out Jason Bradley's write up.

Dives & Travel
There are three dive/trip opportunities currently being planned:

July 16-17: Hood Canal w Pacific Adventures (Full)
July 24: NAAP Photo Dive/BBQ at Edmonds
August 14: Howe Sound with Sea Dragon Charters
August 12-13: Howe Sound Shore Diving
August 15: Howe Sound Shore Diving

The July 24 dive is the first photo "walk" approved by NAAP for divers. It will be interesting to see how we fare.

The August trip to Howe Sound is being set up both as a one day and multiple day outing. If you can only get Saturday off, join us with Sea Dragon for the day. If you want to do some shore diving in the area, the plan is to stay in North Vancouver where it is convenient to get air with Edge Diving.

If any of these trips are of interest, please give Dan a call at 425.418.8755.

While Tim was gallivanting around Australia, six of us headed for Grand Bahama for some dolphin, shark, and other critter photography. Reefs, wrecks, and caves. Great fun and great variety!
