1st In-Person Evening Espresso Gathering for 2021!

For our Espresso Gatherings, members are invited to e-mail any discussion topics to me by midnight on the Tuesday before our gathering. I’ll e-mail this list to everyone by noon the day of the gathering so we can all see the topics in the order that I received them. The length of time we spend on each topic will depend upon the interest and participation of the group at the time.

For our Critique / Espresso Gatherings, John Greenwood will e-mail all GPG members with image submission guidelines and a link for submitting your image(s). Following our usual format of reviewing each image, constructive comments are appreciated.

Thank you very much for your help and participation.

Stay well!
