UaU - t5 l offere l ^ 'he Freeman cottage at Wear Lake The person interested in the ut-of-doors and an admirer of ature might well find nature 'holography a profitable as well s pleasant angle to his hobby. Good nature photographers are ew and far between in compari- on to the number of photograph- rs who are accomplished in other pecialized branches of photog- aphy. This is probably due to the alienee and ingenuity demanded f the cameraman who photographs wild life. It is difficult vork and as a consequence there s great satisfaction in procuring ood shots and a market for out- tanding wild life pictures. The photographer has little con- rol over his subjects and must epend on diplomacy and stealth o procure their co-operation. Aid life photography can be very imple, such as the picture of the quirrel reproduced .above, or ex- remeiy complicated. Even in the ase of the relatively easily pro- ured picture of the squirrel it /as necessary to wait some time fter taking up a position within ight feet of the perch before a enturesome squirrel 'would ap- roach- the platform to have his icture taken. the camera to from which the Long range control over a camera is essential for many wild life shots, a camera must be camouflaged neat- a point at which the animal to be photographed is expected to appear and then a cord or similar control is carried some distance from " vantage point camera can be unobtrusively operated. Study and observation of the habits of the animal or bird to be photographed is almost essential for the photographer to go about Jus photographic problem in the pest manner. This means that he is going to have a new appreciation of his subject and the farther he goes into nature photography the greater will be his fascination and discovery of the smaller unnoticed world about him. The field of nature photography is certainly a field worthy of investigation and a trial by every photographer. There is a great deal of specific information on the subject in photographic magazines and with summer ahead now is a good time to investigate the field of nature photography so that you will be ready to capitalize on this interesting phase of photography FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Doiiy Lenten Devotional By DR.

The day gives us light enough see the faces of our friends, iseover the road of duty and fel- owship. Every day begins with a ew gift of hope and ends with a wilight of forgiveness, a night of est and the promise of another awn. The loving kindness of God s measured to us in days. Prayer: O God, the guide of lese our pilgrim days, we praise Thee that Thou dost measure out ur lives to us in ways not beyond ur power to take and use. Help s to -welcome each day as a fresh eginning, to fill each dav with oodness and happiness and if the ay be shadowed, to be thankful hat it is not too long, if it be right, not to shadow it with the ear of tomorrow.
