PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP 1 - JANUARY 2014

by Tim Wright - 18:36 on 22 January 2014

Ten of us met at St Magnus today .Just as well we were indoors, as outside it was wet and windy. As usual lots to photograph and lots to discuss too .I was lucky enough to get to see the Stone Mason and apprentice at work. I am sure that if one or two went up, they would be happy to show you their workings but ten at once would have been far too many. Anyway, his workshop is in the far north east end of the grave yard and worth a look.
We then went to Judith Glues for tea and cakes plus a perusal of the photos.
Newark looked  cold and wet as had been described to me .However, lots of photos to show that even the worst days can be improved with  a bit of manipulation .Many different seascapes ,winches ,propeller blades, a lobster shell and an old horse shoe, without attached horse, were on display. From Yesnaby we had a couple of contrasting  shots of two Old Men, one shooting the other.
"Glass " was well taken up by everyone with lots of reflections ,lamps, one glass of wine only, with attached red candle and a salt chandelier (which Bunty had constructed after many years down the mines.) Well done for such an interesting and varied display.
The next meeting is on  Wednesday 26th Feb at 2pm in the Dounby School computer room .We are going to show our own photos .So we are looking for 4 people to put together max 50 photos /20 mins presentation on any subject. So far Winkie and Bunty have indicated they will put some thing together .If you don't have Power Point and the sequence of the content is important ,I do have it and we can put it together before hand in an hour or so on my computer. Then the talk is not mangled up with photos in the wrong sequence.
If I don't get any other takers it will be the Scillies or Australia from me .
I have 5 contributions to our show for the General Meeting in February. I am ready for more so don't leave it too late .I will be putting it together early Feb. The Quiz is already done.
The exercise this month is "Time" and it must be in the title i.e. Good time ,Happy time ,but not too much Holiday time ! It is open to interpretation as to how you do it but a photo of an interesting  clock will suffice
Keep clicking,
Tim .
