PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP 1 - OCTOBER

by Tim Wright - 17:50 on 22 October 2014

13 of us sat down to lunch today at the Kirkwall after the planned photo expedition to the Harbour was rained off. Sensibly most of the members had gone to the St Magnus Café for coffee rather than splash about in the water at the sea front.A fine lunch was had by all and we viewed the photos from the trip to the Blacksmith's in St Margaret's Hope. What a variety and what a lot I missed seeing. I need to go back with my tripod and have another try .We had lots of tools ,workbenches, wheels ,both wooden and metal ,oil lamps and the forge and bellows. Well done to all those who took part and showed me that I need to use my eyes more !

"Red" was an ideal subject for the monthly project .We had red Cars, red lamp posts ,red glass ,red flowers ,red machinery ,red doors ,red jumpers and even a couple of red telephone boxes .I think we successfully painted the project RED ! Thanks for all your efforts.

We then rushed off for a fantastic talk by Scottish Ballet that gave a great insight into the workings of how a ballet production is put together as well as the requirements for structure of the costumes they had bought along to show us .A memorable afternoon .

The next meeting will be Wednesday NOVEMBER 12th at Skaill outside the Kirk at 11am with the intention of going to Skara Brae Café for lunch or perhaps the Merkister if you don't fancy Skara Brae café. Please note the change of date to that discussed, as on the 19th I have to lead a walk for the Bird Walking group. Also I am away on 26th, south . I have put the meet time as 11 am as with the clocks going back a 2pm start will give us little time before the light goes .

The project this month is "Sun Rise or Sunset ".(Not a photo that is going to be taken today !)
