The theme for its sixth edition of the FotoFocus Biennial will be World Record with a concentrated week of programming held October 1–8, 2022, and preview events on September 30, 2022.  The theme World Record considers film and photography’s record of life on earth, while exploring humankind’s impact on the natural world and the choices—for ill or good—we now face as a global community.

Mark Buelsing at markb@letitshine.biz asks for photos of cars, auto shows, and auto events to be submitted to gocarshow.com.

Old Business:

Larry Bresko noted that the top six Travel and top six Open photos will be submitted to the PSA Club competition.

Mark Buelsing announced that the new website address is currently not working and steps are being taken to fix the problem.

The opportunity to tour "Cincinnati Triple Steam,” operated by Cincinnati Water Works and featuring four of the world's largest triple expansion crank and fly wheel water pumping steam engines, was discussed.  About nine members showed interest in a Saturday, December 4, outing.  A dedicated tour will take place on Saturday, December 4, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  For those who did not attend the meeting and wish to attend, please inform Glen, as the maximum is 20 people.  Members are able to bring guests.  It is important to review the material on the website about the requirements for attendees and the provided video links, as the video presentation is no longer a part of the tour.  Also, for any member planning to go, print and complete the liability release form, and bring it to the meeting on October 27 or November 10.  If one cannot attend either meeting, please let Glen know for the head count, and also be sure to bring the completed form the morning of the tour.

A link to a YouTube video gives some historical context and shows some of the construction.
