    December Travelogue - Free to GVR Members

    Sam Schaen and Marilyn Gaizband joined a photo tour in Cuba in March 2017. Our group totaled 8 people including a photo tour leader, a Cuban guide, and a driver. Cuba is a country of contrasts. It was common to see a young woman in stylish western fashion speaking on a cell phone next to a horse-drawn buggy. There was also a stark contrast between large cities such as Havana and rural areas of the country. The slideshow is organized by subject: landscapes, architecture, people, and transportation. The last category includes those famous 1950s era American cars in impeccable condition.

    Paul McCreary will present a short travelogue about beautiful Ouray, Colorado and surrounding in many seasons. 

    Shown will be mountains, ice climbing, and an old time Fourth of July Parade with water fights. Ouray is a unique and lovely place.







    Lenore Bell will present a tour of LaConner, Rosario, Orcas Islands, Friday Harbor, and Seattle Washington. A cool, and relaxing trip through some of Washington State’s most scenic islands with beautiful waterscapes and sea life. Later we traveled to Seattle where we visited Chihuly Gardens, the Flight Museum, Highway 99 Blues Club, and the scenic views of Seattle.

    SCOTLAND- Wally Watson

    It started as a golf trip to Scotland for four good friends.

    We did play eight rounds of golf including: St Andrews both Old and New courses plus Royal Dornoch, my favorite!!

    However, most of the pictures highlight the beautiful green country side and cities like Edinburgh and Inverness…

    Then Old Castles, plus one, used in the TV series “Outlander”

    Also, the Battle Field at Culloden, where the British wiped out the Scots and I lost four ancestors (2 Watson’s & 2 Seaton’s).

    Larry Springford - January Speaker Series 

    The Lumiere Institute in Lyon, France, was a fun visit to one of the birthplaces of cinema, founded in 1982. Larry provides a nice overview of the grounds and delves into the career of the Lumiere brothers. Some clips of truly remarkable motion pictures were included along with descriptions of early equipment. 

    Larry Springford graduated from the Royal Military College of Canada in Mechanical Engineering and was commissioned in the Corps of Royal Canadian Electrical and Mechanical Engineers of the Canadian Army.  He qualified as an Army pilot and aircraft maintenance officer, serving in various postings in Canada and Europe. He commanded the Maintenance Company of 4 Service Battalion in Europe as a major and later the Land Engineering Test Establishment in Canada as a lieutenant colonel.

    Retiring from the Army, he worked in various engineering and operational positions at the Bruce Heavy Water Plant of the Nuclear Division of Ontario Hydro making heavy water for the CANDU reactors of Ontario Hydro.

    Due to the posting in Europe, he developed a passion for traveling which carried on into retirement.

    Larry developed an early childhood interest in photography and moved on to video in 2001. After joining the GVR Camera Club and attending Multi Media SIG he had the opportunity to learn from others and to pass on some of what he had learned.

    He enjoys presenting his work in the GV Camera Club and the GV Travel Club as well as at the Arivaca Film Festival.
