Another Photographers Forum Night on the Town!

Once again Forum members venture out for a night on the town. This time our location was Bittersweet in Raleigh (116 E. Martin St.). In case you didn't know. Bittersweet is a desert and cocktail only restaurant. Yes, that's right... deserts and cocktails ONLY!!! (Really, if you think about it, what more do you need? Cosmically speaking, life is way too short, so let's just cut to the chase.)

The Photographers Forum once again out and about!
Thanks again to John for organizing the outing. A fantastic time was had by all, even though as each desert was served, the person on either side was suddenly overcome with "desert envy", a rare but sometimes debilitating disease for which another desert is the only known cure.

Thanks also to the staff at Bittersweet for the exceptional food and hospitality. If you haven't been there, you're missing out! Check out their website here.

Forum Member Stephen Fletcher to Speak at NC Museum of History

If you're looking for a great way to take a lunch break look no further than the NC Museum of History on Wednesday January 11th., where forum member Stephen Fletcher will speak on the Mysteries of Hugh Morton's photographs.

Stephen Fletcher
Hugh Morton’s photographs are full of mysteries and secrets, some known only to him. Fortunately, while processing the Morton collection and managing the associated blog, A View to Hugh, Fletcher has made some discoveries and deductions. Explore some of those stories during this free lunchtime program.

Beverages provided. Purchase a boxed lunch—or just bring your own. For information, call 919-807-7982. Or visit the Museum website here.
