From the Chair...
As we start our second lockdown period in the country, to try and slow down the pandemic, it naturally has an effect on any photography plans we may have had. From travel which has in the past provided us with so much fresh material for competitions, to communications and meeting to share Ideas and Inspiration. We were hoping to be able to carry out a survey around now, to see if we could consider a safe return to the community centre hall, but unfortunately that has now moved further into the distance.
Thank goodness we have the Internet and Zoom to facilitate our Thursday meetings and we are able to operate a full programme. As we have said before, the Internet doesn’t suit everyone, but we are here with a warm welcome for all and in particular for any members that haven’t tried it and of course for any new members.
The club provides a welcome distraction from what’s happening in the world and hopefully provides a level of communication and Inspiration to take your creative mind elsewhere for a few hours. Our excellent committee work hard to make sure we have all areas in the club covered to a very professional standard providing a great product to the members.
On Thursday our third league PDI competition of the season, once again produced some great Images. The competition was judged by Kathy Chantler who ultimately chose the high scoring Images. (As always these can be viewed on our website). We had an Interesting and diverse collection of Images within the competition which, as always was tightly contested to gain points in the league.
Thank you to all that entered, making it a good nights viewing. Congratulations to those who scored the highest points.
