The plans are really coming together for the March 21,2020 Georgetown Texas Photography Festival. Several new businesses on the Square have agreed to participate hosting a featured photographer. Several folks have stepped up to teach photography classes and our photowalks will be scheduled through out the day. Can't wait to see everyone there. Stay tuned for more details. The photo was taken the day Christine Tomaszewski and I walked the Square inviting the local business to participate.
Well it looks like we will be having some photography classes this next year March 21,2020. The classes will be held in the Historic Court House on the Square in Georgetown,Texas.
