Photograph how-to set for Rock & Gem Show

The Clallam County Gem & Mineral Association annual Rock, Gem & Jewelry Show is adding another dimension to its show this weekend – photographing micro-minerals.

The free show is slated for 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Setp. 7, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at the Vern Burton Center, 308 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles

For those photography hounds interested in photographing Mother Nature’s beautiful creations, Bruce Kelley will have a presentation at 1 p.m Saturday on the collecting and photographing of micro-minerals, “The World of Micro-Minerals.” He will show how to photograph mineral specimens using a stacking demonstration with a grand finale “wow” slide show and accompanying stories regarding the specimens.

Kelley is a retired software engineer, a classical musician with the Port Angeles Symphony and a member of the Pacific Northwest Friends of Mineralogy.

There will be the regular knowledgeable rock vendors with large world-wide collections of rocks, slabs, minerals, crystals, polished cabochons and other items.

Free rocks will be given to all kids (young and old); and, Rock Alley has been expanded to include more games and more chances to win that special prize.

Clallam County Gem & Mineral Club members will be preparing display boxes exhibiting specimen rocks, jewelry and other things lapidary.

The Port Angeles unit of the Boys & Girls Club of the Olympic Peninsula will again provide food for show attendees.
