Happy Christmas

Merry Christmas to all our club members. Our programme was disrupted a little over the recent bad weather but thanks to members we were able to adapt our evenings. Here's hoping that next year will be a good one for the club.

Stormy Weather

This was taken on slide film a couple of years ago between heavy showers at Cardwell Bay. I liked the way the sun lit up the womans glasses and rainhood.

Candid Shots

This was taken in Glasgow across from the Weatherspoons in George Square. I liked the style of the man in the window whose hairstyle was similar to the Victorian bank workers who would have been in the orginal building.

There are some spectacular doorways between Great Western Road and Byres Road. It is worth a walk around this area especially early in the morning to see how they are individually decorated.

Nain Kite Flyer

I've just got round to working on my holiday snaps in Nairn from this summer. Nairn was very windy but had fabulous beaches and light to take photos.

Camera Light

Any old cameras lying about?
I noticed that a shop in London called Type has converted one into a lamp. Some of us camera enthusiasts my think this is a waste of a classic camera but at least it is being put to some good use.
The Brownie Light costs £120. Visit the Type website for contact detail and store opening times.

Camera Club Closed

Unfortunately our club will be closed this Friday due to our speaker being unable to make it due to the snow and ice.

For some of us the snow is a nuisance but for photographers it's an ideal opportunity to take photos if we are willing to brave the cold. The photo below was taken with my compact camera which I carry most places these days.
