Finals Evening PDI Competition

The entries with their individual voting panels are below, the comments are at the end and easily reached by clicking on the “Post a comment” text, above the blog title, (you don’t have to enter any text!). If you want to reach the beginning of the images click on the black display bar above the site title.

Alternatively if you can remember the name – or part of it – of the image you’re looking for, enter it into the “search” box at the bottom of the Quick Links menu and it should find details for that search.

To enlarge the image click on the image and a “hand” image will appear, if you click on the image again then it will enlarge and show a “+” symbol, if you click on the image yet again it will enlarge further and show a “-” symbol, and finally if you click again with the “-“, the image will reduce in size!

On the Coast of Coromandel
Where the early pumpkins blow,
In the middle of the woods
Lived the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò.
Two old chairs, and half a candle, –
One old jug without a handle, –
These were all his worldly goods:
In the middle of the woods,
These were all the worldly goods,
Of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò,
Of the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò …

Sunday Summer BBQ!

We started our club weekend with the car festival in Camberley yesterday, a very, very little of that later, and today we had our climax of the BBQ, with many thanks to Jean and Roger for hosting, ably assisted by Janet, Mike, Jenny, Andrea and Bernard, and sincere apologies to anyone whom I’ve missed.
Today the rain held off for the event, but not during Friday night/Saturday morning, where the main awning blew over and travelled several feet into the flower bed during the wind and rain, to be rescued by our hosts also during the wind and rain, and then tied down with heavy chairs and the gas tank from the BBQ burner! Amazingly none of that was visible today though, the sun shone for most of the time, the food was ample and delicious, (also gluten free options, thank you from those of us who have to take that into consideration), and the conversation nimble, ranging from holidays in France and Namibia, (Mike and Evelyn Morley and Jean and Roger), very briefly Brexit, electric bikes and scooters and their regulation, gardening, trees, and somewhere in between CC competitions. I’ve added some images below, my apologies if you aren’t in them and wanted to be.

Finally and briefly, from the car festival yesterday, a photo of Allan, taking shelter in the gallery just after a short burst of rain.

A busy week for the Club

January 23rd brought Alan Barrett to us with lots of landscape images from his travels and some useful tips about the effect of different angles from which to shoot scenes. This was perhaps best demonstrated by his use of images from Iceland’s black sands where the glacial ice can appear either dramatic or insignificant depending on your angle of view.

Iceland 2

He also made it clear that he was not afraid of blacken his images if he felt it more effective than bringing out the detail in shadows. His Antelope Canyon images demonstrate this.

And, finally, if you go out looking for BIG landscapes but the weather isn’t with you or something hinders you in achieving your aim, look down – your image might  be in the detail:

Thursday 24th saw about twenty Club members at the Surrey Heath Museum for the Private Viewing of our Exhibition ‘Spring is Sprung’. 

The Club had been invited by Gillian Barnes-Riding, the Senior Heritage Officer at SHBC to provide twenty images on the theme ‘Spring’ and to be the first local organisation to mount an exhibition in the new location. That was quite a challenge! As one Club member said ‘ Seems we don’t do Spring!’. In fact, we DID manage to find twenty three images that gave different interpretations of the theme with an inevitable focus on flowers and blossom. 

Roger, Niall and I found the selection process a difficult one – there were not as many images as we had had for the earlier Hospital project and finding cohesion is more difficult than finding one shot. However, it has been done and is much appreciated by Gill as well as receiving many positive comments from those who were at the Private Viewing on Thursday.

I know many members support the Heritage Gallery and attend Thursday lunchtime talks, so do, please stop and have a look at the exhibition while you’re there.

Thanking the Museum

The assembled gathering

Thanks are due to the photographers for allowing us to show their work, to those who worked in the background to mount, frame and hang the images and to everyone who takes the time to stop and visit when they are able.
