PHOTOGRAPHY GROUP ONE

by Tim Wright - 19:47 on 25 May 2016

Eleven of us went to St Nicholas Church in Holm today on a rather dull but dry day with a fresh Northerly wind. Athole took us in to the main church after a brief stop in the Vestry to see the many local History items and compilations of photos there .The main Hall is empty but dry and the windows are in the process of being replaced ,shedding an interesting light on the three massive ancient grave stones mounted in the walls .The church was struck by lightening many years ago resulting in the old bell now being in the small arched window .The only other casualty was the large pot bellied boiler which was destroyed .We had a brisk walk around the grave yard which is full of Primroses at the moment .We then retired to the Fossil Centre for Tea and cakes and perusal of photos .

Gramesay had been a great day out and the sun had helped .We had lots of photos of the Lighthouses ,from a distance ,from close up and from the sea .The ruined Church was another popular photographic subject as was the red Telephone Box.We had lots of seascapes and landscapes plus some of some new born Lambs ,one with a plastic bag filled to keep him dry.A lovely selection of photos of a great day out .

"Outsized /Extra Large had been the project.Large Towers from New Zealand and Canada ,the London Eye ,very large Bulls and very large Bull's eyes all featured prominently but the Stenness Monster was the highlight although it wasn't obvious which was the Monster in the photo . Thanks to all those that took part in an very interesting  and varied interpretation .

The next meeting will be TUESDAY 21 st June at 10 am at Marwick Bay .Please note the change of date from that discussed .This is because my daughter and her Family from Australia leave on Wed 22 nd in the afternoon to return home and I need to be around that day .I hope that is not too inconvenient for everyone .If it is, we can re arrange it .The project is "Gardens/Gardening ".

Keep clicking and get down and do some night photography at the Weeping Window before it is taken down .I include one of mine for your perusal ,

Tim
