2017 BRISTOL SALON PDI SHOW

Last night we were treated to a visual feast. Pete Howell and Carol Sykes traveled from Bristol to present a superb selection of the images accepted and awarded in this year’s Bristol Salon of Photography, one of the most prestigious of the international photographic exhibitions. We were delighted to see that several of the images shown came from our own club. This year Lorna Brown, Keith Sawyer, Mike Davison, Jean Brooks, Sheila Tester and Ann McDonald were amongst those who had images accepted in this exhibition. Congratulations to all!

Thanks as always to the selection committee who always look very carefully at each image and have given invaluable advice every month.
