Camera Club-June

Little Notes from June’s gathering:

There was almost a full house on Tuesday for our June meeting, with three new faces….welcome Andrew (Perryman), Nigel and Brian. We viewed last month’s contributions – Down by the Water and chatted about various camera settings needed to capture the different qualities of water. The variety of watery images was wide – the calm, misty views on La Brenne, the cold North Sea, tranquil Med and everything in between.

The contributions for June’s project Signs, brought some laughs – we were impressed with the signs that were around to be captured on camera: apostrophy errors, conflicting Beauty and Beast announcements, catastrophic area warnings and strange requests as well as just odd observations!

Having a camera when out meandering certainly makes one look at things differently, look up and down as well as at the obvious.

Turn, drag the cube with the mouse then click on any of the images on any of the cube faces to see the picture in full view or to view the whole album.

An outing is planned for 1st July to Glenic to the annual Donkey Day: much is on offer to be enjoyed and to capture through the lens. The day starts at 08.00 and wraps up at about 18.00, entry is free – so those who want to venture among the donkeys, just turn up, no plans for coffee or lunch. “Capture a Hat” is the theme (as well as other images of course). The day’s images will be viewed at our next meeting on 10th July along with Any Old Iron. It is proposed that the meeting will commence with a camera setting session, so not too many Iron pics!

So, if you fancy joining us for some laughs, coffee and viewing some interesting “takes” on Hats and Iron, come along to the Library at 14.00 on Tuesday 10th July ….
