January 2020 Meeting Recap

Thanks to everybody who braved the beginning of the annual January cold spell and a dreary day to start the new year out by exploring another Miksang theme. The forecasted snow did not materialize for the second month in a row so we quickly changed our initial plans and introduced “Definitely Not Black and White”. We are partial to this theme, especially on grey days with flat light.

The consensus was that we really had to stretch our Nalanda Miksang muscle this time… but the images coming back were well worth braving the icy winds!

December 2019 Meeting Recap

How do you know that it is a busy season? When just a few super committed Nalanda Miksang practitioners show up for a December meeting! Thanks to everyone who came out to our monthly get-together.

The theme we explored this month was “Weeds in Winter”. Let the images speak for themselves! Great job everyone!

We would like to share in advance that we are returning to a meeting start time of 10 a. m. in January. We all agreed that perhaps the 9:30 a. m. starting time is a bit too early during the winter. There will be a reminder for January, so no need to remember it right now.

 

 

Regina Outing Recap

A huge thank you and shout out to Bonnie and Wade for securing a fabulous space for our gathering. They went all out with providing beverages, snack and main contribution for the potluck lunch. Food and space aside our group of seven could not have chosen a better day for our excursion.

The morning theme had us explore the “Metropolitan Beauty” assignment. Everyone fully embraced the downtown area with reflective windows, curves and right angles. Please read up on the theme on pages 116/117 in “Heart of Photography”.

After the review of images (and there were many amazing photos!) and the wholesome lunch with a great selection of foods, we ventured out armed with the “Miksang and Street Photography” theme. You can find its explanation on pages 152/153 in “Heart of Photography”. Never and easy theme to explore our group really embraced the challenge and brought back images for review that had us discuss them for some time. We had a fabulous day in Regina and the weather could not have cooperated better. It’s our plan to gather in the big city again once snow and ice are gone next spring!

Here is a short slideshow of selected images for all to enjoy:

Some additional parking info for those attending the Nalanda Miksang Moose Jaw groups first special Regina outing:

If you are coming on Saturday, parking sometimes can be tight on the street. We have arranged to have access to the 3 parking stalls of off-street parking on the south-east corner of the building.

Thanks, Wade and Bonnie for organizing all the details for us. Looking forward to seeing many members tomorrow!
