Photographic evening

Leave a comment

This was a good event. The evening went without a hitch. There was no power cut, no problem with the video projector, no crash of the computer. No one fell asleep. The room was full (at least 50 people), the food (a buffet) was plentiful, and the photos were interesting. Many brought items for the raffle and most bought tickets for it. The money raised paid for the hire of the hall and left £40 profit.

Six people showed photographs taken either on holidays or on walks with the group. Each was allocated fifteen minutes. After the fourth presentation we had a break for the buffet.

Photographs shown included ones taken in Nova Scotia, the Slate Islands (Inner Hebrides), Norcia (Italy), Scotland (Corbetts) and Iceland. Most used compact cameras; one used his mobile phone. All were good quality pictures. There were no out of focus or blurred shots. The most memorable to me were those taken from the tops of Corbetts. The landscape was bleak. There were no houses, no people, no trees; just mountains and valleys and distant lochs.
