And now to details of our meeting, where everyone enjoyed a new style of evening at the club when members were asked to submit 5 pictures on a theme of their choice. We had an excellent response and a variety of themes were submitted, from 14 members, making for a very enjoyable evening.
The themes were projected in alphabetical order of title and the identity of the authors remained anonymous until after the break. The three Chairman: Past (Jason ) Present (Kate) and Future (Ann), were asked to make comments but sadly Kate was dismayed to miss the meeting, but it had been strongly suggested, by Weston Park Hospital, that she stay with them overnight! Kate’s husband Keith stood in for her.Here’s one example of each of the five images submitted by:
Autumn by Jason Dietsch
Back(s) in Indochina by Ian Ord
Charolais Cows by Alison Johnson
Daylight Robbery at Silverton by Ray Fowler
Grandchildren by Pat Fowler
Infra Red Landscapes by Roger Moore
Landscapes by Les Nixon
Light Painting by Steve Elliott
Macclesfield Salt Mill by Janis Ibbotson
Portmeirion by Keith Brown
Waterfalls as Watercolours by Erica Dietsch
Wonders of Nature by Ian Stanyon
Yorkshire Sculpture Park by Kate Brown
After the break the authors names were revealed and they made their own comments on their choice of themes and photographs. Steve Elliott surprised everyone and we were delighted when he offered to demonstrate his stunning Light Paintings to the club next season. Thank you to all the authors; to Ann and Jason for their comments and to Alan for projecting the photographs.
