The Bronx Zoo
The Bronx Zoo is a great place to take photos. Over 4000 animals - including many endangered and threatened species- live on its 265 acres. The Zoo has a focus on naturalistic habitats, both indoors and out, so you can take photograph animals, including tigers, rare snow leopards, and bears in such a way that people viewing your photo won’t be able to tell it was taken at a zoo. The Bronx Zoo is an enjoyable and exciting photographic opportunity. Some of the exhibits we plan to visit are the aquatic birds and sea bird aviary, tiger mountain, Zoo Center, and the big bears.
We will be meeting February 17th at 10:00 a.m at the Southern Boulevard entrance gate. Hope you can join us.
Looks like fun!

Subject: SSCC March fieldtrip to Street Seaport
South Street Seaport
MARCH 31, 2019
9:15 a.m. at 108th and Beach Channel Drive Ferry
Looking for a new photo opportunity. Then South Shore Camera Club's March 24th trip may be the answer. Between the Brooklyn Bridge and Financial District lies one of NYC’s oldest and most interesting neighborhoods - South Street Seaport.
We will roam the cobbled streets on this photo trip exploring the seaport historic district. Stops may include Schermerhorn Row, the Paris Cafe, Seaman’s Church Institute, historic Front Street, the Old Fulton Fish Market, tall ships Peking and Wavertree, and unparalleled views of Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge and the city’s iconic skyline!
Kudos to Henry Harrow who suggested a great way to get to lower Manhattan - the Queens Ferry. The trip is only an hour and provides great views of Far Rockaway, Coney Island, Sunset Park, Governors Island, and of course downtown Manhattan. Cost for the ferry is only $2.75. It is relaxing, with plenty of photo ops, and convenient. Parking is available for $8.00.
We will be meeting MARCH 31st at 9:15 a.m. at the ferry. Ferry leaves at 9:30 a.m. for Pier 11/ Wall Street.
Central Park’s Conservatory Gardens May 19, 2019
The northern end of Central Park is a hidden gem. That’s where we are headed for SSCC’s May trip. First stop the entrance to the Park at 105th and 5th on the east side. It is here we will meet at the front of theVanderbilt Gate. This magnificent iron gate was made in Paris in 1894. Walking through the Gate we’ll walk into the Conservatory Gardens, one of the nicest sections of the Park. The six-acre formal Gardensis divided into three smaller Gardens: Italian, French and English. In spring the Gardens offers a variety of
colorful flowers. In addition, there are two special fountains on opposite sides of the Gardens. Throughout the area there are many benches where you can take a break. They are good locations forboth people and dog watching.Further north we’ll come across the Harlem Meer. On the other side is the Charles Dana Discovery Center. After meandering around the Meer we can explore the shaded North Woods. So please join us May 19th, 10:00 a.m. at the Vanderbilt entrance Gate. Street parking is available nearby.
