This has been a good week for Bromsgrove PS. We entered the Cwm Rhondda Battle yesterday against 24 other clubs from the UK and Ireland. The quality of work was very high and we finished a very creditable 4th out of 25 – dropping only 10 points out of a total of 80. The overall winners were Catchlight (Belfast) – they dropped only 2 points with some astoundingly good images and well deserved their triumph. A special mention should go to Julie Hall for scoring maximum points with her image Red Squirrel on Lichen – the judge was very impressed.
On the subject of Wales, congratulations should go to Michele Chance for winning the Chairman’s Medal for her image “Curves” in the Welsh International. Finally, also our congratulations to Andrew Crawford for getting an image used on the Visit Exmoor Instagram page. As a Society we continue to go from strength to strength, and coronavirus has not dented our talent or enthusiasm.
Looking ahead to this Tuesday our Zoom meeting will be a presentation from Adrian Weale entitled “A Family Business: a perspective on war photography” War photography doesn’t tend to feature on photographic club programmes very much and it will be fascinating to see at hear a different topic to the usual. Adrian is also donating his fee to the Royal British Legion.
There is no early session this week.
See you all on Tuesday
