We had a fairly informal evening sharing a glass and some photo’s at the Angler’s Rest on Monday. the discussion was lively and i know i took a lot from the evening with new angles and techniques. here are the images we studied all taken by our own members.
Jason gave details of one of two potential dates for a visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, when the leaves will be turning from greens to rich reds and golds. The dates dates on offer are either 3rd or 10th October. Please contact Jason, giving him your preferred date and also if you’d be prepared to share your car with other members.
Last Monday’s evening at the Angler’s Rest, organized by David Allwood, was another success, where a group of members shared images of musical instruments and talked generally about photography. I’ll put these images on our website in the near future. The next social evening where members can meet, share images and discuss photography will be Monday November 2nd at The Anglers Rest. The theme will be ‘movement’ and various ways of expressing speed, blurring of images, etc., to create the best artistic effect.
David, Ian S, Bea, Alison, Erica, Kate & Nick, showed members their images in a ‘Beat the Clock format – with the ‘gong’ sounding after 10 minutes. David ‘s theme covered ‘Street scenes”; Ian’s thee covered the deciption of movement and speed;Bea showed 90 images all taken in her house or garden.
Alison showed images of her holiday in Botswana; Kate treated us to a selection of images she’d taken on a ‘photographic day out in Liverpool; Erica covered images taken in and around Monterey in California.
Nick showed us images of concerts he’d attended. Often taking images in very low light at ISO 12,000. Then Nick played us an extract of his favourite group – Girls band – leaving us with the impression that Nick’s a middle aged groupie!
I’m deeply saddened to announce the sad loss of Catherine, a past member of our Photographic Society. Catherine was the much loved wife of club member David, and mother to her young sons Robert & Freddie. Catherine lost her battle with a long illness on the morning of Friday 4th September. Our thoughts go with David, Robert & Freddie, along with Catherine’s sister Erica, Jason and the family.
Catherine’s funeral is to be held at 11.30.a.m on Wednesday 16th September at Hathersage Church of England Church (the one on the hill near the school) . Catherine requested that people DO NOT wear black – she wants the service to be a Thanks Giving and Celebration service not a memorial service.
Catherine requested NO flowers from friends, she would like people to consider giving a donation instead. Parking is going to be restricted at the church so if possible please can people park elsewhere in the village and walk up to the Church either via Baulk Lane or via Church Bank.
The service is to be followed by Tea and Cake, which will be held at Hathersage Memorial Hall (next to the swimming pool and opposite the main car park). Catherine requested that people bring cake – she did not want this to be a catered event and believed that her family and friends would be able to supply cake.
