So we had another excellent competition night last week with our interpretation of Architecture. It was good to see a wide range of subject matter from many authors. Once again, the standard was very high and the honours were spread across a range of award winners.
We followed this on Thursday with the Five a Side competition at Stourbridge. The first half of the programme was for Prints and we actually lead this convincingly. The second half was for PDI’s and this was a different story. Despite our entries comprising work which has been judged very highly in previous competitions, we fared very badly. As they say – you can please some of the judges, some of the time, but not all of the judges, all of the time. Overall, we came third. Droitwich were the overall winners.
This week we have the return of Tony Gervis for the early session. You should have already received an email from Tony. His presentation will cover ” SPORT, REFLECTIONS and A WINTERS DAY ” and should be as excellent as ever. There will follow a presentation from Penny and Spike Pidduck – mainly based on (but not exclusively) underwater photography. All reports that I have had tell me that this should be an excellent evening.
Two events for your diary –
1. This weekend 14-17 March we have the Photography Show at the NEC. I’m sure a lot of you are going. Why not make arrangements to meet up whilst you are there, or even car share to get there. We will be there on Saturday
2. The following weekend 21-22 March is Comic Con 2020. Most of you will have already met Sophie who has modelled for us at Avoncroft. This is just a flavour of what to expect at Comic Con. I believe it also possible to get many great images outside of the show before participants enter the building.
For those who missed last week, I have a camera battery that was left at Avoncroft 2 weeks ago. It is for a Canon. If you think that this may be yours, please let me know, and I will bring it tomorrow.
Finally, many of you will remember Roger Tyler – one of our past members. He has asked me to pass on his thanks to those of you who signed his 70th Birthday card recently.
See you all tomorrow.
