Camera Club meeting features motorcycle trip photos

FALLBROOK – “Two Wheels, a Digital Sensor and a Little Imagination” is the title of Chuck Boatman’s photo presentation at the Fallbrook Camera Club meeting on March 15 at 7:30 p.m. The club meets at Silvergate Retirement Residence in the second floor community room, 420 Elbrook Drive. The program highlights his recent trip by motorcycle to the upper Midwest and back.

Photos in his program include shots of Seligman, Arizona’s Roadkill (“You Kill It, We Grill It”) Cafe; Santa Fe, NM, with the 1873 Loretto Chapel and its “miracle stairway;” the church of San Francisco de Asis in Taos, of which Ansel Adams made his famous photograph; the 800-foot high dunes of Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park; “Carhenge” and Scotts Bluff National Monument in western Nebraska; Pipestone National Monument (where Native Americans are still carving peace pipes) and Itasca State Park in Minnesota with the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River as it begins its journey to the Gulf of Mexico.

Boatman is an educator and pastor who has spent much of his life in college teaching and administration. He is currently the Chaplain at Fallbrook’s Regency retirement and assisted living facility. He is also a writer and editor for Student Venture (a ministry to Junior High and Senior High young people) in the Temecula Valley.

Photography and motorcycling have been among Boatman’s hobbies for several decades. A Canon 30D and a BMW R1200RT are the current tools through which he expresses those interests.

If anyone has any questions about the program, they can call the program director, Judy Jobe, at (760) 726-7223.
