Senior’s Day In Pictures At Aurora Farmers Market

The Aurora Farmers Market on August 13th, 2011 was a truly memorable event. It was Senior's Day!

The Aurora Farmers Market on August 13th, 2011 was a truly memorable event. It was Senior’s Day, and the attendees had a fantastic time singing, listening to music, shopping, chatting, enjoying delicious food, and much more. The photos captured the joy and excitement of the day.

I must admit that I thoroughly enjoy reading the Senior Scape column, which is regularly published in THE AURORAN. To add some excitement to this post, I would like to share a few quotes from the Senior Scape column that I found particularly inspiring.

Imagination and reason combine to guide the hands of the artist carefully, while roughing out an initial version of the shape; delicate artistry caresses the final creation to emerge from the rough shape, now rendered to its full glory by meticulous hands”.

The first meeting of the Camera Club received excellent support and interest, including one enthusiast clinging to a favourite film camera he had possessed for many years”.

I am curious about the experience of using my first film SLR camera again and capturing images. I anticipate that my tendency to carefully preview each shot will remain and because it’s a film camera it would lead me to be more selective in the number of photos I take. In contrast to the ease of snapping hundreds of pictures a day with a digital camera, the process of shooting with film requires a more deliberate and thoughtful approach.
