PHOTOGRAPHY APRIL

by Tim Wright - 22:32 on 25 April 2012
Eight of us went to Lyness today to photograph the Museum and the Renewables jetty.It was dry but a keen wind made the soup an essential for lunch at the cafe.There were lots of guns of all sizes and we saw the Otterbank in all it’s new coats of paint plus Admiral Reuters barge.The oil tank was not open due to rain coming in but there was plenty in the Pump House to photograph.The renewables jetty had some strange sort of wave machine that looked like a half sunken boat.The large Pelmaris nodding wave machine was impressive and photogenic.Lunch was taken in a nice warm cafe.
”Enigma” which had caused some concern proved to have brought some very original ideas including the house that split in two,a rather dead looking sheep skeleton stuck in a tree and a pink tree.The photos of the last trips showed Burray ,before the rain ,to have produced ,amongst other things, a series of views by different people of a purple fishing net.They were all very pleasing and demonstrated well the various aspects of the same subject that different photographers have.
The next meeting is on Wednesday 23rd of May at 2pm.We intend to go to Hoxa Head with tea in the new cafe.Please bring appropriate footwear for walking around the paths.If it is wet ,we will go to the Fossil Museum.I am not sure if one is allowed to take photos there .However, it seems if more than ten of us go we can get a reduction in price ! The subject for this month is “ Red or Blue” or a combination of both .
