PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP ONE May 2015

by Tim Wright - 19:47 on 06 May 2015

KIRBUSTER FARM MUSEUM

Eight of us turned up in the rain (again) at Kirbuster Farm Museum. Luckily, the venue had a lot to see indoors and I don't think the Bluebells got a look in outside. The fire was on giving a lovely reek throughout the kitchen area with a very smokey atmosphere. There were lots of detail shots available as well as general views of the rooms and byres. An ideal venue for a wet day out.

Tea was taken at Birsay Tea rooms with excellent Tiffin and some rather exotic looking coffees. The Coplands Dock photos were perused with the yellow bollards, yellow piping and blue sky to the fore. A couple of multi image photos of the Dock and a Tystie compilation caught the eye, but it was the sun on everything that gladdened the heart. "Wood" was the monthly theme and what a variety. We had Olad's wood, a "Hers" shed from a pair in the back garden, wooden teeth, cut wood piles, ends of wooden planks, and a wooden sculpture from the Cathedral. All it needed was a wooden Actor to complete the variety!

The plan is for a trip to Sanday for next month's event. I will look into it and get back to you. I hope to fix it for sometime in the first couple of weeks in June. It may mean an early morning wake up though.

The theme this month is "Three or Triangle". That should start to test the little grey cells!

Keep clicking, the sun will come out soon.
