PP Francesco visited the Grandma Care project in Thailand and showed us some photos with the beneficiaries.  He brought some backpacks as gifts for our sponsored children and he visited the Rotary Club of Chiangmai Thinthaingam, which supported the project.
The speaker today was Rtn Josh Sellers, who talked about “Who am I”.  Rtn Josh grew up outside of Seattle, Washington, on an island called, Vashon.  After he left home, he enlisted in the United States Navy as a Damage Control Specialist.  After his service in the Navy, he attended the Art Institute of Seattle to study Art History and Commercial Photography.  He later transferred to the Art Institute of San Francisco to continue his degree in Art History and Visual Communication.

He introduced to us how to view and understand composition in photography, which included Rule of Thirds and the Golden Ratio. The Golden Ratio defines a spiral pattern that shows up repeatedly in nature, in everything from a nautilus sea shell to a sunflower to the spiral form of the galaxy itself.  Rtn Josh showed us some examples of famous brand promotional photos to illustrate how the ratios works.

We collected HK$860 for raffle and fines.  PP George donated a Fortune Book of the year of Rabbit as raffle prize, Rtn Adrian got the prize.
