I sincerely hope you are all well in these unusual times. Even though we are fast approaching the end of our season we’ve made the decision to continue with Zoom meetings throughout the summer recess for as long as this lockdown and social distancing continues. This newsletter therefore gives you an update about our forthcoming Zoom meetings from now until the beginning of July. Further details about each date are available within the programme section of our website. We do hope to fill other Thursday slots and this will be forthcoming in another newsletter in due course.
Before that I’d like to congratulate all the members who have posted some beautiful images on the club’s Flickr site. The last theme was “Bloomin’ Marvellous”, where members shared a range of colourful and creative images of floral portraits, garden and nature settings. The latest theme is called “Lockdown Life” and will be open until Saturday 9th of May. It is open to any form of image that reflects the lockdown period we’ve all be enjoying, I don’t think, including documentary, portraits, artistic interpretation, abstract, etc, and not forgetting humour of course.
I have to say that it’s great to see the increasing use of digital media to show off work from our members so please keep it up.
Now the programme to date:

I hope you will enjoy this Zoom programme and can see that the committee has been very busy behind the scenes trying to offer at least a little comfort during these awful times and keeping us all involved in this fantastic medium of photography. To that end I’d like to offer all my thanks to the committee, with special thanks to Jeff Owen for all the techie stuff, and look forward to working with them next season.
Best Wishes to you all.
