Ideas and education

BRATTLEBORO Paul Miller - "The Blind Birder": An avid photographer for 50 or more years, Paul is always looking for interesting images. Birds are always a challenge. They are attractive, interesting, and somewhat seasonal. This means Paul is looking year-round for new or better pictures. One of the best ways to study as well as to photograph birds is to use some form of "blind" from which to work. Thus, many of the images from his show are taken from devices to draw attention away from him as the camera man to the blind (i.e., tent, boat, vehicle, clothing, structure). Sponsored by the Southeastern Vermont Audubon Society. 7 p.m. in the conference room. Free. Brooks Memorial Library, 224 Main St. Information: 802-254-5290; Click for more info on Web in new window.
