BCPA 2017 Bald Eagle Photowalk, Maryland

Photographer:David Deng/Atlanta
Date: Nov 9th-12th, 2017
Reporter: Dongxu Shan

Bald eagle as the national bird and national animal of the United States, is a favorite subject of photographers. The members of BCPA have been travelling to the Conowingo dam, Maryland to photograph bald eagles for many years. Nov. 9th to 12th, 2017, twenty plus BCPA members traveled together to Conowingo dam again to capture the beauty of this nature wonder, organized by BCPA.

Despite the long drive, all the teams woke up very early in the mornings and prepared ready along the bank of downstream of Conowingo dam when the sky was still dark. The weather of that weekend was very cold, but the attractiveness of bald eagle fishing chased away the freezing cold in the morning from BCPA members.

When sunlight broke the east horizon, the birds started hunting for food. The BCPA members joined hundreds photographers from all over the world starting to concentrate on eagle chasing. This was a challenging job. Though the eagles were not always fishing and there was a lot of waiting time, the unpredictable appearance of the fishing eagles and their swift actions didn’t allow anyone being distracted, or you would be regret of turning your mind away from the sky. From dawn to dusk, standing in the chilly winter weather for full day, only those bald eagle chasers knew where the fun was.

Even for lunch, no one wanted to leave the site where a wonderful scene could appear at any given moment. All the teams were very well prepared, thanks to the tips from seasoned members in the team. Having warm lunch and dinner were more than needed, after standing in freezing wind for several hours.

You may ask, “Several hundred miles away from home, more than 20 hours standing in freezing weather, did all worth it?”

When the members opened what they captured on their computer screen, I was sure their answer would be “Yes!”.

The following is a small selection of member’s eagle pictures from the trip this year, what would keep them and others coming back to Conowingo dam in coming years:

BCPA 2017 Foliage Photowalk, Vermont

Photographer:Guozhong Li
Date: Oct 6th-7th, 2017
Reporter: Dongxu Shan

Staying at the center of New England, the beautiful fall foliage is nature’s gift to BCPA members. As a tradition, BCPA organized 2017 foliage photowalk in Vermont October 6th to 7th. It is a most popular photowalk of BCBA, totally more than 40 photographers participated.

The lead organizer Guozhong Li had detailed route and accommodation planning. Due to the large size of the participants, the entire group was divided into 3 action teams, Eagle Team, Rum Team and Dinner Gone team and each team had 3-4 cars. The provided members had flexibility in planning and agility in action. The team was organized with the mix of experienced and less experienced photographers. Each team member not only had opportunity to learn/exchange in large group session, also had unique/personalized experience in their individual group activities.

After the photowalk, each team also summarized their individual route and photo spots into documents to share with BCPA members and general public, for their convenience to prepare trips to Vermont in coming years

The Beauty of Fog 雾之美

The beauty of photography can largely depend on weather. A sunny day shooting has clear scenery and is full of vigor. Rain on the other hand is often with sadness and nostalgia. Fog reduces the details so if used well, an ordinary scene could show a hazy and miraculous beauty. This album collects 69 photos taken on foggy days by 37 BCPA photographers. Through their eyes, you can experience “The Beauty of Fog”.

摄影之美与天气有很大的关系,阳光明媚拍摄的作品景物清晰,充满朝气;雨天则时常带着忧伤和怀旧;雾天减少了景物的细节,熟悉的场景也有了陌生感,如果运用得好,普通的景物也呈现出神密矇胧的美感。本专辑收集了37位来自BCPA的摄影师们的69幅在雾天拍摄的作品,从中可以体验在摄影师眼中的“雾之美”。

Title: Untitled
Time and Location: Sep. 9, 2015, Iceland
Description: It was a very foggy morning in Iceland.  We boarded a small boat on a lake and quickly the shore vanished behind us.  The purpose of the voyage was to see icebergs at the mouth of the lake to the ocean.  We were surrounded by a thick white fog – nothing but the fog!  The visibility was about 5 meters at the best.  The cast of doubt for seeing anything became as thick as the fog.  But the captan was sure of his route and destination without any reference at the shore, in the sky, or by the water.  The boat proceeded with moderate speed and, somehow, a small version of Titanic flashed in my thought.  What if …..!

As my mind wandered off, the engine of the boat stopped.  We glided thru the calm icy water, rather dark water for lack of light, but it was the only reference beside the boat.  All of a sudden, a huge piece of floating iceberg carved itself out of the blurring mist, so vast and so close!  For the first time in the past 15 minutes my eyes were able to focus on something.  In its grey shape outlined with patches of the black volcanic ash, light mysteriously deflected by which it infused some jade green and aquamarine and perhaps the mixture of the two, making it a giant wondrous gem.  There it stood, magnificent and beautiful, broken from its very original form that nature created many million years ago.  What was it trying to tell us about – itself or otherwise?

When and if the fog lifted, and as it reached the ocean which seemed to be its very final destination, it would eventually lose all its formality and thereby all its past.  I couldn’t stop thinking how sad that this photo happened to have recorded the last moments of something existed millions of years.

Description: It was in wildflower blooming season in Texas. With two other photographers, we drove 55 miles to Ennis from Dallas. In Texas, Ennis is well-known as “Bluebonnet Capital of Texas”. When we arrived to destination, it was before sunrise. Shortly after sunrise, the surrounding area was covered with dense fog. I took this picture of a creek which ran under a bridge we stood in countryside. Because of the fog, the creek could be not seen much far. Along the creek side, it might be covered all different wildflowers, e.g. bluebonnets, Indian paintbrush and buttercups.

BCPA Lecture 講座: Intellectual Property for Photographers

主講人:Hsuanyeh Chang 張宣業
講座題目:Intellectual Property for Photographers 攝影師的知識產權
講座日期:October 28, 2017(Saturday週六)下午2:00PM-4:00PM
講座地址:Framingham Public Library,49 Lexington St, Framingham, MA 01702 (free parking 免費趴車)

Hsuanyeh Chang (張宣業), PhD

Dr. Chang’s practice focuses on the preparation and prosecution of patent and trademark applications, and post-grant proceedings (ex parte reexam, inter partes review, etc.) before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. He also counsels clients on other intellectual property issues, such as, copyright, trade secret, etc.

Dr. Chang believes that the key to competent representation in intellectual property matters is the ability to quickly and fully understand the technology involved in each case. Because of his broad knowledge base in the sciences, Dr. Chang has successfully procured patents for inventions in various technologies, even over very close prior art. Such technologies include computer software/hardware, semiconductor, electronics, mechanics, optics, medical devices, nanotechnology, bioassay, liquid crystal displays (LCD), organic light emitting diodes (OLED), wired and wireless telecommunication, electronic circuits, digital/analog signal processing, etc.

Dr. Chang also has experiences formulating in-house patent strategies, managing patent portfolio, licensing intellectual property, performing due diligence and freedom to operate analysis, designing around competitor’s patents, and training R&D engineers on patent law basics.

Prior to law school, Dr. Chang worked as a technology specialist in an international IP boutique firm and as a patent agent in a nanotechnology company. At this point, he has more than 10-years of accumulated patent experiences in both law firm and in-house settings.

In addition to English, Dr. Chang is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and conversational in German.

It was a perfect evening at Skaket Beach in Cape Cod MA where the time of the sunset and the low tide were perfectly lined up to allow me to take a long stroll on the soft flats. Everybody walked toward to the same direction where heaven and earth met; where the colorful sun reflection and water lines met; where people and nature met; where a beautiful painting were formed, we are all in it.

Breeze 海岛风情
Feb. 19, 2017, 6:18am, Caye Calker, Belize 伯利兹海岛
Sunrise. I got out of hotel in the morning trying to get some conch shell on the beach for the kids,but found the beautiful sunrise along the sea shore. Then I ran back to hotel to get the camera finally catch this amazing moment. We got a lot of beautiful conch shells, white and red ones, but all got confiscated when crossing the custom/security to guatemala. We ended up with no conch shells but still have pictures at hand. Beautiful Belize, we will be back.
早上起来准备给小朋友在海滩上捡些海螺壳。发现日出狂跑回酒店拿了相机出来拍摄,虽然气喘吁吁但还好没有错过这一美景。我在海滩给小朋友带回很多海螺壳,白色的红色的,但过危地马拉海关时被没收了。没了海螺壳,还好照片在。美丽的伯利兹,我们还会回来的。

Back to the future 回到未来
Dec. 30, 2015, Ait Benhaddou, Morocco
We reach Ait Benhaddou late because the incident in gas station, which turn out to be a memoriable story. This ancient fortified village (kasbah) at the sunset time is amazing. This ancient village was established in 757, and it is the shooting place of first star war and many movies. Walking in this thousand year old village gives you a feeling that you are in somewhere outer space in star war, really like walking back to the future.
至今,Ait Benhaddou的黄昏仍像是一个梦幻萦绕在我的记忆里。我们路上出了些小事耽误了行程到 Ait Benhaddou(阿伊特·本·哈度)正是日落时分。这是深藏于阿特拉斯山脉中的一座享誉世界的有防御城堡的村庄,始建于757年,是星球大战,角斗士等众多电影的拍摄地。暮霭尘埃,茫茫荒野,蜿蜒的Ounila河,肃穆、苍凉、寂寥,这里是千年的古城镇,是罗马角斗士的战场,亦或是外星球的人类居住地,进入这个村落仿佛回到了未来…

Foggy Morning
The photo was taken in late Sep. 2001, just couple weeks after 9/11. I visited Boston from Texas and was on a fishing trip. The boat departed from Plymonth Town Wharf in the morning with dense fog. I used a film camera (Nikon N80) to take the shot. Film was developed and negative was scanned.
