PHOTOGROUP 1 MAY 21st

by Tim Wright - 17:48 on 21 May 2014


Twelve of us attended a very wet Brough of Birsay car Park and rapidly decided that an early tea was the way to go. We retreated to The Palace Tearooms aka Georgie Clark's where a warming cuppa was taken along with a cake or two. We perused the photos from Happy Valley and amazingly very few were repeats .It is surprising how a dozen people can see so many different angles and subjects in such a small area.We were unlucky with the Bluebells as three of our number showed with more recent shots taken in the last few days showed .The Red Door ,the trees ,both upright and in reflection, the fairies, and the Burn all featured heavily in both colour and Black and White.
"Outdoor Activities" included fishermen ,farmers, walkers (both with Dog and without) Rugger ,bird watching, copulating Goats and even a Windsurfer ( I wonder who put that one in ! ) A great variety and a great entry. Thanks to you all as I know some had found it a difficult subject.
The next meeting is at 2pm on Wednesday June 25th at Waulkmill Bay to take photos of flowers ,birds ,sand and sea. Tea will be taken somewhere but we will decide whether to go into town or to Standing Stones .
The project is "Boats" .
