On April 1, 2012 the North Orange County Computer Club, NOCCC, celebrated it’s 36th year and Jim Sanders is one of it’s 25 charter members. He’s also the only one left still active in the club. He has been the President for the last 4 years and probably has been on the Board in some position for all those 36 years. Without Jim there would be no NOCCC.
The NOCCC meets once a month, usually on the first Sunday, at Chapman University. It should be noted that without the friendly support of Chapman Univ. the club would probably have to disband.
This is where I spend my first Sunday of the month since 1986. I’m currently the SIG, Special Interest Group, leader of the Beginners Digital Photography SIG.
If you would like to attend one of our meetings than check out the NOCCC web site. There just may be a SIG for you. The link is: www.noccc.org.
If you’re a rookie digital photographer and need help or just want to hang around other photographers then consider the Beginners Digital Photography SIG. The blog for this SIG is http://nocccbgphotosig.wordpress.com/.
Hope to see you on May 6, 2012.

I recently had one of my photos show up on another blog without my knowledge. I wasn’t informed by the web site owner that he was going to use the photo. Not nice. I would have told him that yes he could use the photo but only after reducing the size and linking directly, via the photo, to the post where he saw the photo.
After complaining, via a comment, that it would have been nice if he had told me about his posting of my photo he has now removed the photo. That’s dumb too. I didn’t tell him to remove it but he did anyway. I guess that makes me the bad guy. Nothing new for me.
Here’s his comment on removing the photo:
Carlos Miller – Photography is Not a Crime just posted a new comment on Security Guard Forbids Photography in Front of Apple Store:
I removed the photo, no problem.
The reason I didn’t contact you was because I wanted to get the story up before going to bed that night.
Most photographers who get harassed are happy to let me use their photo as I tell their story.
But it’s not a big deal. Photo has been removed. Problem solved.

Me thinks his comment is very funny. He got the story posted before bed time but just didn’t have any more time that evening to send a quick e-mail to me. In fact he NEVER sent me anything that evening or any other evening.

The NY Times is having a worldwide photo shoot on May 2, 2010 at 1500 hours (U.T.C.) That’s 8 AM on my coast (Pacific.)
They’re requesting you take a photo at that time and send to them ASAP. For details of the photo-event check out the NY Times Lens blog: http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/08/about-3/
Look for me I’ll be there.
I signed up to be part of the City Daily Photoblog and apparently I don’t qualify. Just because I live in Laguna Beach, post a photo from Minneapolis and chose Southern California as my city does this disqualify me?
I just dislike constraints.
Going into Santa Ana, CA today. Don’t know if I’ll bring back an acceptable photo – that is acceptable to me – but we’ll see.
