Notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group Meeting of 06/09/19
« on: June 10, 2019, 02:14:30 PM »
Hello All,
Here are my notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group meeting of 06/09/19.

TOPIC: Bridges; structures through the air

Ralph Sutter opened the meeting showing a link to listing some bridges in San Luis Obispo County. Thanks to Alan Raul for the resource.

Ralph then shared a slide show of bridges found in and around Arroyo Grande.

Connie Sutter followed with bridges found in Thailand.

Kaye Raul showed bridges and railroad trestles including shots from Huasna Valley.

Alan Raul presented bridges from Arroyo Grande, San Luis Obispo and Shell Beach. Most of his pictures were taken with his new Sony full-frame digital camera. Working from the raw images, Raul brought out rich detail without retouching.

John Waller offered bridges seen locally as well as in Yosemite, Disneyland and Nipomo. He demonstrated how he used the new Content Aware brush from Photoshop to remove a barbed wire fence from the image of the Lopez Lake Bridge.

Bob Styerwalt showed bridges from around the world, visiting the US, Canada, and Europe.

The meeting ended at which time Ralph invited everyone to build their own pizza and bake it in his recently completed pizza oven. Bob Styerwalt memorialized the event with photos.  His images can be seen on Dropbox at  and

Alan Raul did the same.  You will find his pizza party shots at

Monica Tarzier added to the festivities, bringing a delicious potato salad.
